Aunt Mays

As the youngest of four, I've never known what it's like to have a younger sibling to care after. The fact that a younger sibling is foreign to me is probably what draws me to loving children so much, but not in a creepy Michael Jackson kind of way. Just in the kind of way that I love to fuss over them, hold them, adore them, and have them sink into my arms. So, needless to say, the day I became an Aunt, I was beyond excited to have a little child to love and adore, one who was actually part of my family. Being an Aunt is the closest I'll get to having a younger sibling, and I think this way is a little bit sweeter anyway.

These past two days I've gotten to play "mom" to my nephew while my sister is back at work, and I've loved every minute of it. It's definitely given me a new appreciation for motherhood, because it's sure a demanding job, but a job that's worth the hard work nonetheless.

My favorite part of hanging out with my nephew, having him fall asleep in my arms for three hours. I don't think there is anything quite as sweet and peaceful as holding a sleeping baby, especially one this cute!
Hanging out with James these past few days has sure made me miss this little one too.

I'm sensing a trip to Sweden is in the horizon.

Cute post Maser. James looks like he has less hair in that picture.
