My new nephew Cole was born yesterday and I have already fallen in love with him. How can someone so tiny capture your heart so quickly? Actually, he is not very tiny-he weighed in at a whopping 9lbs 15oz.
I got there around 11:15 am and he was still in the nursery. I stopped by and saw my sister in her hospital room and chit chatted with her for a bit. Everyone wants to see the baby, but they forget the mom! Lol. After a while I couldn’t take it anymore so I went to the nursery. My other nephew Hunter proudly led the way like the big brother he is. He was laying there with his eyes closed just bunched up like a little burrito. There was another baby in the crib next to his that looked half his size! He definitely wasn’t a whopper of a baby like Cole is.
The nurse started giving Cole a bath and his little lip was quivering, soooo cute! Then she styled his hair into a Mohawk (which he sported proudly-he’s going to be a rockstar!). After he calmed back down we left to go to lunch at the Egg and I (yummy).
When we got back they brought him in and I got to hold him. I was actually the 4th person to hold him after my sister since I am lower on the totem pole of the family baby holding privileges. Aunts/Uncles come after parents, grandparents, and great grandparents. Then it goes in birth order of aunts/uncles. I’m ok with it. He was sleeping and grunting while I was holding him, a few times he actually opened up his eyes.
I knew Hunter would be feeling a bit left out with all the attention being on the baby so I got him a cool Darth Vader shirt. He love Star Wars so he will probably wear it to school soon to show everyone. I am really a cool aunt. I’m just sayin’. Since Hunter likes Star Wars, maybe Cole will like flamingos like me! Maybe not.
