And Then She Met Her Niece

At long, long, LONG last!

I spent quite a bit of my single years as a nanny to my sister's children. She lives out in Nebraska, and it was the highlight of my life to be there when her babies were born. She has cute, fat babies. She made me so anxious to step into that far-out dream of motherhood someday.

December 28, 8 weeks after Jimmy was born, she gave birth to sweet Miss Korynne. It took a long five months for me to get to meet her. 

And then, at long, long, LONG last I had her in my arms. All her cute fat fluffiness in my arms. She was IN MY ARMS!
And you know what was so strange about holding my sister's baby this time?

It was holding my own too.

Not sure what could be more fun than sisters having babies together.
