Baby Love

I have some exciting news. Or maybe it’s exciting only to me. But anyway. On Tuesday evening, Joe’s sister gave birth to a baby boy! Having no siblings of my own, when I first found out she was pregnant last winter, it was exciting to bask in that ‘I’m going to be an auntie!’ moment. Over the last 7 months, of course that feeling faded a bit, since his sister and her husband live far away and we hadn’t been able to see her get bigger and all that. But on Tuesday, when we got the first pictures of the baby, I felt excited all over again! And last night, we watched a couple videos of the little guy, and I may or may not have said “Awwww!” a few times. We’re planning on making the trek out to see them over Labor Day. I haven’t held a baby in my arms since I was 7 years old, when my cousin was born. He’s a sophomore in college now!

Anyway, with all the excitement, I felt inspired to pull together some cute nursery artwork. I saw one of these prints at the Renegade Craft Fair a couple weekends ago and still have my eye on it, but there are plenty of other pieces out there that would be equally as adorable. And R, if you happen to look at this in between all the madness of the next few weeks and something speaks to you, please let me know!

Jury is still out on whether I’ll hold the little guy and immediately want my own. Survey says that for now, renting is more fun than owning. But I’ll report back after Labor Day!
