Baby oh baby!!!

I love my family!!! I am the youngest of 6 girls. My sisters are a lot older than me, the closest to me is 7 years older than me, the next? 7 years older than her and then 4 in 4 years. So, that means I was an aunt when I was 3. I have grown up with my nieces and nephews and have LOVED it!!! In fact, my oldest niece, Amy, had a baby before me. 2 years ago we had a LOT of babies born in a short time. If I remember right it was like 9 in 6 months!!! It put me in auntie Heaven. This year, a lot of them are having their second babies from that round. I think the miracle of birth is just that... a MIRACLE. I love that our Heavenly Father trusts us to carry and raise his children. What a blessing. So I thought I would blog about some of the babies born this year so far!!!

This is when my nephew, Elijah was born. His parents are Amy and Steven (Randy's brother). He's such a fatty patty now, it's hard to think of him as this small!!! He shares a b-day month with Tyler, he's pretty proud of that!!!

Then we have my niece, Misty's, twin boys!!! They are so much fun!!! They live in Richfield, so we don't get to see them often, but as you can tell, the crazy aunts eat them up when we're around!!!

Here's my niece, Brittney and her husband, Chuck with their second son, Stetson!! He is so much fun!!!
Then this niece Amy, had her 4th boy!!!! Look how pretty she is in this picture with baby Noah!!!
Last week, my best friend Gina, had her second baby, a girl, that they named Emily. She is already saying, "I love Hopie". She's a genius!!!!

And just yesterday my nephew Robert, and his wife Rachel, has this little guy, Jay R. Named after his grandpa!!!
I love seeing the family members of mine that are making good choices. I know not all of them make the best choices, believe me, I have some punks in our family, but I like to look at the positive. The ones that are doing good things, being good people and making good choices are the ones I love spending time with!!!

With a family as big as mine, these are just some of the fun times we've been having since the first of the year!!! How blessed am I?

No wonder you are my friend.
Nothing is more precious than a baby. Love them!!!
You are blessed.

There's nothing better than newborn baby skin next to your face. It should be bottled up and sold as an alternative to Prozac.
