I'd like to introduce to you my new nephew, Sheperd Ryan! Isn't he beautiful?!
He was born today, and even though I am 3500 miles away, my heart is jumping up and down and wishing I could hold him and watch his older 3 sibling for his mommy and daddy.
That dashing young man is my youngest brother and the gorgeous woman is his beautiful wife and mother of his 4 children! Aren't they so good-looking?! I think so.
I have to admit, I'm not usually one to ooo and aahh over babies. I sort-of think they look like aliens. Especially with the whole growing inside thing. Yep, I'm not a momma! But look at this little guy! Isn't he perfect?! I must hand it to them, they make beautiful babies!
I'm rambling a bit, but I can't help it: I really wish I could have been there. I have never been near for any of their children's births. I have been lucky enough to be able to head to the hospital for all of my sisters 3 and for one SIL's twins. I've missed another SIL's 2, the first SIL's adopted cutie-pie's entrance, and all 4 of my brothers kiddo's. While this may not seem like a big thing to you, I have to say that I absolutely LOVE my siblings. ALL of them! I LOVE their spouses. I have come to realize that this is not a usual thing. Sad, because I LOVE it! The part I HATE is not being there to share these special moments. Even in just the background things.
Someday, I hope to have the ability to spend more time with my siblings and my N&N's! (that's part of the NEED LESS plan!)
Congratulations Adam and Becky! I love you more than you know and will be praying for you and your family!
