Darin and I become an aunt and uncle again... TWICE IN ONE WEEK!
Um, yeah.. it doesn't get any better than this. =)
February 15th, Miss Chloe Jem came into the world. (Darin's brother and sister-in-law's daughter!)
Yep, she's gorgeous & we fell in love immediately. This is Darin's brother and his wife's baby girl. She was so, so sweet. Eric's hair and ears and a little face just like Liz's. =) We made a trip up to Indy last weekend to meet her for the first time.
Funny story.. little background information. Darin's g-parents have trouble saying my name. Most of the time it's DORCY and has been for the past 2.5 years that I've known them. I think they've given up on saying my name right now they jokingly call me Mrs. Holsopple. Darin and I just laugh about it. They are really sweet people, they just have trouble with my name. So do you all want to know what they've been calling miss adorable Chloe?
Yep, peeps have been writing Eric and Liz cards that say CONGRATS ON BABY CLEO!!! Crack me up. I bust up every time I think about it. Cleo and I will have to stick together in the "Gma and Gpa H not being able to say our names correctly" Club. Although, she wins.. they don't call me a name that should belong to a 70 year old man...It is all good though, they love us both and that is what is important!
Then on February 22nd, Brayden Michael came into the world!! (My brother and sister-in-law's new son!)
And he was a healthy one! He almost weighed 9lbs and for all of you that know my sil Natalie, she's not a big person AT ALL! He ate well in utero and is still chowing down. =) Again, one glance at Brayden and I was instantly in love. It's so amazing how that works.. one look and you know you are going to love this person for the rest of their life. Can't imagine the first time Darin and I see our baby! Anyhow, big brother Jett is doing great with new baby brother Brayden. He says his name so well an is a great helper.
And no red hair. We all thought Brayden was a red-headed girl.. we were all wrong! A brown-haired baby boy. Perfect. =)
And now Darin and I are really going to screw things up if we have a girl. My dad only has grandsons from his own kids (my step sister has twin girls)... Jett, Brayden and my sister's twin boys. So we are either going to complete a basketball team or have a princess with a bunch of older boy cousins protecting her. I think it's a win-win either way. = )
