I Am An Aunt... I Have A NEPHEW!!

I still haven't quite gotten accustomed to my new role...an aunt! And not an ant... like the annoying thing that creeps and crawls and scurries and BITES... like an AUNT, who loves and cuddles and buys and gifts and loves and cuddles and ENJOYS! An Aunt...

To a boy...

Named Graham Allen Agnew...

Brought into this world on the LAST day of the FABULOUS month of August. The 31st, at 1:52pm... a night-owl like his cousin Caden... He was 7lbs and some change and 21" of pure NUGGET-NESS... and yes, it IS a word! And it is the perfect world for our little G!

I mean... come ON... look at him!!


 NUG-GET, pure and simple!

He is a pretty, pretty boy... and I dare say, maybe even prettier than my own little man! Maybe... :-)

Regardless of the cute factor, I couldn't help but do a little side-by-side comparison... that Graham just reminded me too much of my little man! Such sweet memories!!



Graham was born EARLY on a Friday morning... which gave us plenty of time to get haircuts... buy goodies... and get the heck to Houston to meet our LITTLE COUSIN, Graham... 

BIG COUSIN was super excited and MIDDLE COUSIN just wanted to go... let loose... be on the move... give or take that new LITTLE COUSIN of hers...

And of course they were both excited to see Aunt Ree and Uncle Tag... the two all-star parents that did a bang-up job bringing that LITTLE COUSIN, Graham into world! It took some serious effort and maybe some tears and definitely some sweat... But they did it! And we were all so thankful that Graham was as perfect as could be!


And I know these two... the Nana and the Bop-ster were even more relieved to know that their THIRD grand was here... safe and sound and their SECOND child was doing good too! And then they realized... WOW... we now have more grands than kids... WOAH BABY!

I think they were all smiles about that... :)


And BIG COUSIN was all smiles about it too... And that MIDDLE COUSIN... even she was a bit curious for point TWO seconds...


And me... well... I finally get it... that expression that has always seemed a bit dramatic and maybe even graphic... "My uterus... surely did... HURT!!" And I became suddenly very aware how empty it was when I was holding this little guy...


But my heart was full! Welcome to the family little man! We are blessed to have you just as you are blessed to have us! :) For better or worse this is who God chose for you and we could not be more excited to get to know who God created you to be! 

Bliss...


Already rockin' the pink like his Uncle J and Cousin Chade... :)


Little bitty, bunny...


To say we are over the moon for our little nephew is an understatement... NUG-GET, remember?!

We are also pretty darn proud of his Mommy and Daddy! It's fun to watch them take on the excitement and adventure that is parenthood! Welcome to it, Aunt Ree and Uncle Tag!! Graham is a blessed to have you two as parents!

We love you Graham Allen Agnew... 

Welcome to our family!!
