Cousins!

My sister, Kristin had a baby girl last month and her name is Madeline (Maddie) June (named after our Grandmother). So of course, we drove down to Austin immediately on hearing she was in labor.
She is beautiful and looks very similar to her big sis, with a tan like her Italian father. We are even more excited because Maddie and Baeya are almost exactly 6 weeks apart. Owen and Ella (the older siblings) are 10 months apart and couldn’t love each other more. So much that they want to be around one another constantly and don’t stop bickering the whole time they are together. It may be more of a brother/sister type relationship. Which brings the cousin number to 3 boys and 4 girls, as I have previously mentioned my brothers children in Meeting Baby Casen we were very excited about this Christmas due to all the kiddos. Baby Casen is now 9 months, his older brother, Brody is the best at letting Owen wrestle him and their older sister, Aubree is the best little mama to all of the tykes. I think after this Christmas my parents are going to try and convince us to cap it at 7 grand kids. We’ll see if that happens…

We were not able to celebrate until just this past weekend, but we had lots of fun with all the kids. We also got to have a photo shoot so more pics to come.

My funny little guy

As Owen gets older and we are learning more and more about his big personality, I constantly find myself thinking I wish he could always be so joyful. I know the world will take some wind out of his sails but I so want to prolong that from happening. Nate (for those of you who don’t know) is a people person and I am a people person but never did I ever think we would produce a huge class clown. Don’t think there is another way to describe it. Before Owen was able to walk he was blowing raspberries on the leather couch just to make us laugh. Which brings me to today’s fiasco… O had been down for a nap for 25 mins when I heard “mama, come here!” Repeatedly. So when I opened the door to Owens darked out room I vaguely see my little jokester jump out fling his hands in the air and yell “tada!” In my annoyed mama voice I told him to get back in bed. As I pulled the covers up I realized that I couldn’t see the stripes on his pj bottoms that we had just put on for naptime. I asked him if he took his pants off and he said yes, but as I was walking out of the room and my eyes had adjusted to the dark room I noticed a diaper on the ground. I went to flip on the lights pulled back Owens covers and Owen shot his feet up in the air with a big smile on his face. He had put his Spider-Man sandals on and was just hoping I would notice. So there is my son naked from the waist down with Spider-Man sandals on his feet. I could not stop laughing and he was so excited that I finally figured out what he had done and had the reaction he was hoping for when he yelled TADA! Wish I could have taken a picture to remember but that probably wouldn’t have been very appropriate. I know I will regret saying this when he is in school but I hope that he stays a little jokester forever.
