Auntie 3.0

You know how much I love being an aunt. Besides my gracious brother bringing my ridiculously adorable niece Taylor into the world, I also have my sister to thank for my insanely cute nephew Liam. Liam is enormous (as in, he's an 8 month old wearing 24 month clothes) and bald and happy and just so freaking fun to hang out with.

Liam is making some waves on the homefront as a baby model (for real!). Hanging out with my sis last week while we toted around the huge football of giggles that is Liam is hilarious... I felt like I was with celebrity spawn. Routine scenes from strangers around us include:

"He is the cutest baby I've ever seen!"

"Oh my word... look at him!"

"He is HUGE!"

[Countless people including single guys who do not consider themselves baby fans seeing Liam and unconsciously breaking out in a huge smile as they walk by.]

So yep, he's kind of a big deal. And you can see his cute little self in Cary Living magazine this month!

You might remember that my sis stood beside us on our wedding day as the Best Woman just eight days before she brought Liam into the world. She rocked it.

Pregnancy suits her, doesn't it? I'm spending this morning bragging a little because I've finally been given the green light to share some news that I've been bursting holding in for over a month:  

My sister is pregnant again!  

Liam will be a big brother to a another cutie just sixteen and a half months younger than he is. I'm beyond thrilled for Lisa and my brother-and-law... and giddy about having another niece or nephew in my life! Bonus: now that I live so close, I can spoil them all whenever I want!


  1. That baby is seriously adorable. Congrats to the family on the great news!

  2. Congrats! That is so exciting. I feel like evryone around me is pregnant (5 close friends and untold numbers of acquaintances). If they could all pop out babies as cute as your nephew, the world would be a better place. Okay, time to peruse Cary Living!

  3. Aw, congrats to your sis. And yay for being the fun Auntie!

  4. Man, pregnant and in some serious heels...your sis does rock! Big congrats to you both!

  5. SO exciting, Aunt Maggie! Congrats to your fam.

  6. Thanks, Mags!!! You're the best! You know, you could return the favor/excitement and help me up my aunt status!!! ;-) Ohhh... looking at those pics I can't believe I'm going to be that huge again before long! What have I done!!! Just kidding - can't wait! Love ya!

  7. Congrats! I love being an aunt, it's the best!! Spoiling without major responsibility!! :)

  8. That's a damn cute baby. Maybe I could hire him to pretend to be my baby for the purpose of my parents? Just a thought...

  9. Congratulations to you, your sister and family!
    I love being an Aunt too, it's even better now that she can say my name. :)
    Liam=adorable! Look at those eyelashes!
