niece love

Katie, my sister's oldest
{entering this in Allie's challenge}

When I'm with this kid, something inside me is literally bubbling over and screaming "I JUST LOVE THIS TINY PERSON SO MUCH!" I never, ever thought I would be like this.


It is physically impossible not to snatch her up and squeeze her and kiss her profusely.


I nearly die regularly. When Katie reaches out and says "hand?"

When I'm zipping up her monkey sleeper and she wraps her warm little arms around my neck and sighs, "Happy."

When I say "I love you!" and she says "Too!"

Ruby, my brother's oldest.

I love them at this age. But I also can't wait until I can give them manicures and take them each red shoe shopping. And I'm ready with my baseball bat to mutilate any boys who even think about breaking their hearts.

Virginia, my brother's second daughter (on the left) and Victoria, my sister's second daughter (on the right).


I can't wait to find out what kind of crazy personalities these ones have.

Patrick, a friend's little boy.

And I can't wait until these two are older and I can pull this out and embarrass them with it. ; )


If I love my nieces with this ridiculous and alarming ferocity, what am I gonna do when I have my own babies? I'm pretty sure I'll just burst.

  12. Awwww... SOOOOO SWEET!!! I so wish I had a niece... or a nephew... my sister and her husband are being SLOOOOW, lol! They've been married for 4 years and I'm like, "Come ON you guys!" haha but seriously I've often thought the same thing about friends' children - "How ridiculous am I going to be about my own children, if I'm this crazy about theirs?!"

  22. Oh dear, now you have me missing my 4 year old niece. She's in Kentucky, and I'm in Wisconsin. I see her once or twice a year. And it frequently kills me. When I do see her, we spend a lot of our time dancing, singing, and just enjoying each other. I've really be amazed at how alike we are in some ways, considering that we hardly ever see each other. She's such a dear!

    Your nieces are just adorable! How do you handle all that accessible adorableness?!

  23. Those babies are ridiculously adorable. I love those last pictures! :)

    I wish I had younger children around in the house again. My sisters are getting old. *sigh* :P

  24. Aww, they're all so cute!

    Hey, I got a question. Did you ever get my email about the mexico giveaway winner thing? I can't tell because my email is being a tard and messing up and so now I can't tell if anything was sent or not. I probably can't even tell if I'm getting new mail or not. Ummm, the best thing to do would probably be to just leave a comment on my blog to let me know...or you can try emailing me...but that's a risky thing to do lol. So um yeah, I think that's all. Thanks!

    In Christ,
    Morgan

  25. Babies that are related to you remake your world, your identity and your joy. Who knew everyday life could be so wonderful? God. That's why He gave us babies to love on.
