One month ago, I published the following photo on Instagram:
“I’ve finally joined an exclusive club that I’ve longed to be part of. I’m an Auntie! Welcome to the world sweet baby. You are already so loved.”
It’s true! I’m an Aunt. An aunt to a baby GIRL. You know what that means – I’ve finally been awarded the opportunity to shop for pink everything. My niece is tiny, temperamental and too-cute-for-words. She is perfect.
I’ve often wondered if holding a sweet bundle of joy would kick start my own maternal longings – particularly because as the boys grow, I find myself wanting to keep them as my little babies forever. But alas, my ovaries have drawn a line in the sand and are firmly on the “no way” side; while I enjoy every moment with my niece, I’m happy with my life right now… diaper-free household included.
So, I get to cherish those newborn moments and then hand over the baby when she gets fussy. #Winning!
This afternoon, we spent an afternoon with family at Grandma’s. And of course, we all waited for the star of the show to arrive! She was treated to a comfortable, portable place to stretch out thanks to the Fisher-Price Special Edition Rock ‘n Play Portable Bassinet. With a flat elevated sleeping surface and rocking motion to help soothe baby to sleep, it’s a great addition to your baby gear.
And with two doting older cousins, it’s no wonder our tiny angel feels safe and secure. Sweet dreams, little one!
