Oct 24, 2011 ~ still smiling from the weekend!

I got this phone call from my big brother Jason a year ago today:
 

Bro: Hey Sis! What’re you up to?

 

Me: Eatin’ pizza. Watchin’ Joe Dirt…..You?

 

Bro: Well, I just happen to be holding your brand new BABY NEPHEW!!

 

Me: AAAA! (tears commence, like the violent bursting of a water balloon)….And? Is he healthy? Is he okay? Is Sara okay?

 

Bro: Everybody’s great. He’s beautiful. His name’s Benjamin Nathaniel.

 

Me: Oh, I LOVE IT! Oh, thank you God! Thank you God, thank you God, thank you God…(picture me doing this for about another hour and a half, crying, spouting sentence fragments, generally blubbering like an idiot – I’m pretty sure my brother was able to set down the phone, go make a sandwich, and come back without me even noticing).

 

And now, as we celebrate Benjamin’s ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY, I am at a loss for words as to how to describe the immeasurable joy he’s brought to our family. He’s perfection. I love him more than I ever thought I could love ANYBODY. So I ask that you bear with me, because here come a diaper load of photos from the weekend. I’m SO happy my entire family could be together for this: my folks drove out from Michigan , we all met up at the bro’s house in New York , and mister…… we partied like Playskool.
