I'm an auntie! More importantly future brother and sister in law are parents. And boyfriend is an uncle. And future father in law is a granddad.
Aren't new babies great, the joy and changes they bring.
I met Will when he was merely a day old. A whole 24 hours brand spanking new. With a bouquet of flowers and a huge soft tiger, I met my nephew. I held him like a fragile piece of glass, must protect his tiny head, and I hope he doesn't start crying, was running through my 38 year old mind.
I gazed at his perfect features and wondered what the world has in store for Will. I thought of the years ahead, watching him grow, learning his first words and taking his first careful steps. Would he be an astronaut, a scientist or a mathematician? One can't help pondering over his future.
The lounge he was sleeping in has already been transformed from a newly wed home to a babies play ground. A tiger, a bear and a rabbit watch over him. Blue sparkling balloons decorate the white walls and powder blue baby grows are patiently waiting for him to grow into.
One things for sure, the happiness he has already brought his family is etched on our excited faces.
Welcome to this crazy life, dear Will.
