Apparently, my super-anxious-can't-wait-to-meet-my-new-nephew Auntieness got the better of me because the kids and I just returned from a whirlwind trip to Seattle to meet baby Devin. I pulled Spence out of school early on Monday and we sped away only to return a mere 48 hours later. But it was completely worth it as I spent a good chunk of yesterday holding my sweet nephew and giving mom and dad some pointers. It makes me sad to think that I won't be there for the everyday stuff but it was nice to feel helpful if even for a few hours.

I'm in love.
