Yesterday, was my 26th birthday. I received the best gift ever.
I got oodles of Facebook wall notes wishing me well and a happy day. I wrote/posted a status update thanking everyone and indicated that I received the best gift ever on this special day.
I didn't think much of it.
Until I got a text from my dear friend Lindsay asking, "Are you pregnant? Is that the best gift ever?"
I had to read it twice before I understood that my status update on good 'ol Facebook may have been a little cryptic - and that was totally unintentional.
The best gift ever was none other than the arrival of our nephew, Liam.
This is the little bugger that I have been anxiously awaiting for some time now!
And he's here!
He came in weighing a whopping (is that sarcasm?) 5 lbs, 9 oz and is just perfect.
Since he lives in Illinois, we haven't got to meet him yet - but you can guarandarntee that we are going to meet him as soon as possible.
And then I am going to hug and kiss and squeeze him (gently, of course), and hug and squeeze his Mommy and Daddy.
I am such a proud and happy Auntie, and I could not be happier that he is now my little, tiny birthday buddy.
We love you, Liam!
