I get to see my nephew about once a week, and I make each week count! He’s so little now, but big for his newborn age. Already in three month clothes and only six weeks old! But every chance I get to hold that little nugget, I do!
When my daughter was a newborn, I used to feel so protective when anyone other than me or my husband would hold her, but now I see why every wanted to! I’ve had friends and younger cousins as babies around before, but there is something about my age now and babies directly related to me that makes me crave to feel their breath brush on my cheek as I brush mine with his. It’s heart melting!
And queue the baby fever!
Before I go and make baby number two happen, I’m working on my Auntie game. He’s too young to spoil with material items right now, so spoiling him with hugs and kisses will just have to do! I will spoil him so much for my sister and make him want to be held all time, just so Auntie can sweep in to the rescue! Muhaha! I just have to remember that is the Aunt to my daughter, so karma may bite back. Hmm..
