I'm an Auntie!!

Meet my brand new nephew, Luke!

Born 3/3/11, 6 lbs 12 ounces, 19.5 inches, and looks just like his mom!  I'm so proud : )

Hmm... not having such a great hair day there, are you Auntie G?
And no, my ear is not normally that red.  I was literally having palpitations from having walked through the emergency room, which we had to enter through because we arrived after visiting hours.  I HATE hospitals, and I especially hate emergency rooms, because the two times I've ever had to walk through one, there was always someone vomiting.  I would literally rather die than see, hear, or smell vomit. 

So sure enough, as we were waiting for our instructions on where to go, I spotted a woman in the ER with a bucket on the floor next to her.  Between getting myself all worked up thinking she was going to blow (she didn't, thank God), and the fact that it was a BILLION degrees in my sister-in-law's room, I ended up with the lobster ear you see above. 

Alright, I'll stop babbling now.  Anyway, if I'm ever published and you happen to notice one of my mc's is named Luke, now you'll know why! 

Luke and his Nonni, Rosemary.  Those little thighs were just too cute for me not to post this picture!


  1. OHMYGOD. as you might be aware of my baby-craze, you know im all over this one! he's soooooo adorable, gina! and guess what?! i became a cousin four days ago, too. lol, i was already a cousin of around, like, 35 people (big family!), but my aunt had another son and i was super thrilled! unfortunately, his white blood cells depleted completely and hes constantly in the im just praying he'll be okay. dont you hateeeeee it when stuff like this happens? but i hope hell make it, hes getting better every day! :)

  2. AWWWWW!! I want to cuddle him right now!!! YAY!

  3. I was visiting for Mo's blogfest and scrolled down to this. Had to laugh out loud at your "rather die than see vomit" comment - I felt the same way, but my resolve has been worn down by a child whose gag reflex is hair-trigger. The kid barfs like a freakin' champion then goes on with her life like nothing happened. I remember throwing up as a kid and just crying because it was so awful and gross and wrenching. Not her, she can barf and then eat!
