This is my gorgeous sister, Rebecca, her handsome husband, Steve, my cutie-patooty nephew, Elijah, and that bump that you don't see? That's my niece. I've never had one of them before. I'm very excited!
Steve is practicing for his role as protective daddy.
Seriously. Look at her. She's more than halfway through her second pregnancy. When I was two months into my second pregnancy, people were giving up their seats on the subway for me.
Her only redeeming quality is that she's genuinely awesome.
My nephew, Elijah, is hilarious. His expressions. Gah! Just scroll through these pictures and see if you aren't smiling.
Did that make your day, or what?
Elijah loved the sand, but he was really scared of the water. He struggled to see his mom or dad even going near it. They got their time in, though. I think each year will get better - by the end of the week, he was willing to touch the water, so progress was definitely made.
This is Rebecca and my dad catching the same wave.
Does this picture remind anyone else of the beavers in the old BBC version of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe? Just me? Oh.
These guys. I love them. I'm blessed to have them in my life, and I'm thankful they have each other. They compliment each other so well. As for their new addition, well, let's just say she's highly anticipated!
I can't wait to meet you, little girl Forster! I love you already!
