I am incredibly lucky that I have family close by.
My brother and I didn’t always get along when we were younger because he had the uncanny ability to mess up my perfectly hair sprayed bangs and hit me with a kick-board when I walked by (though he won’t admit to either) and I had a propensity for tears and drama. That doesn’t make an awesome combination.
It wasn’t until we weren’t living in the same house (he’s 6 years older) that we really started to appreciate each other.
And now? I can’t imagine going a week without seeing him, Cristin and Margot.
I am lucky in that I can call Adam a friend as much as I can call him a big brother. Cristin too – and I always wanted a sister (I always dreamed of shared clothes and bonding over perfect bangs when my brother was being mean :)).
(Cristin just chopped her hair off and I think it’s the cutest…)
Last night they came over for dinner and it was just nice. It is really fun to watch them as parents with Margot and I am so fortunate to live so close to my niece — I love that I can see her whenever I want.
I busted out my camera while they were over… Margot is so cute!! She is discovering her hands and responds any time anyone makes funny noises, which she finds just hilarious.
I mean seriously, do I not have the cutest niece on the planet? Obviously a rhetorical question because yes, yes I do.These next few crack me up. She’s gotten a little too long for her onesie and her cloth diaper is taking over here :).
I am lucky indeed. LOVE this girl. Adam and Cristin too, but Margot? She’s something…I can’t believe that she’s already 3+ months.
