4 months ago, my niece Allison was born. I flew down from Buffalo the night before Allison’s baby shower and on the day of the shower I received a text message from my brother in law at 6am saying that they were already on their way to the hospital. He mentioned that there was a possibility that my sister was going to give birth that very morning. A few hours into their baby shower, we received a phone call that my sister gave birth to a baby girl :)
Holding her for the first time was such a precious experience. She was the tiniest thing ever and I remember feeling terrified because I didn’t want to crush her with my heavy fat arms. I’ve never really considered myself a ”kids” kind of guy but when you have one as part of your family, it is really one of the greatest experiences ever and kids really do grow on you. It’s fun watching the behind the scenes work on raising a child too. I think my sister has been secretly… ok…maybe the better word would be “subliminally” trying to make me learn how to change Allison’s diaper. That’ll never happen. hahaha
Little Allison is growing up so quickly, I feel old.
