A sweet little nephew
Last year on July 3, after nearly 26 hours of labor, my little sister welcomed her first baby into the world. After the delight of getting to be pregnant at the same time as my sister, I had the joy of watching her endure an incredible tough labor that ended in a c-section to deliver her son, my darling nephew Isaac. He was one of those babies who is genuinely cute from birth and still is. Getting to watch as he captured her heart and overnight made her a mama is something I had looked forward to for a long time and it was more amazing than I’d imagined.
I knew she married well and we adore her husband but with Isaac’s arrival it was more clear than ever how well matched her and Todd are. I saw love that day that many people go a lifetime without finding. They were incredible.
This year, we celebrated his birth alongside a multitude of friends and family and I did not get any too great pictures but here are a few.
Isnt it awesome having kids close in age! What a beautiful, happy families you both have
I agree that it has been truly amazing to watch Danielle become such an incredible mother. Isaac is a very lucky boy!! I hope to add to the crew of cousins someday 🙂
He is blessed for sure…..and you will, all in good time, I look forward to it 🙂
It deserves mention that one of the biggest reasons I can be a great mom to Isaac is because of the amazing example I have in Karissa. She has helped me to remember to just soak up and enjoy each moment with Isaac even if it means holding him for half the night or letting him suck my pinky because it was the only thing that soothed him at birth. I can’t begin to imagine being a mom without her unconditional love and patient support.
