Yesterday evening I became an Auntie….again. My husband and I already have 2 nephews on my side of the family. This time, his brother was the one expecting. I posted Jessie’s maternity photos not too long ago and the time finally arrived for the little man’s debut.
The immediate family members waited patiently throughout the evening and just into the early morning today. It was a little bit of a rough road for Jessie, but finally, at about 11:45pm he arrived into the world. Sweet little Mr J.
I was so incredibly proud of my brother in law today. It’s like I saw him grow up in an instant. (He is my husband’s “Baby” brother) Today he bacame a dad. Wow. I also am incredibly proud of seeing my sister in law slip so naturally and comfortably into the role of a mother.
And seeing the new love and excitement on both of their faces as they looked down upon this tiny bundle that they created, well, thats just about as good as it gets.
The arrival of Mr J marked the first grandson for my inlaws, we ourselves have two daughters.
