I'm an aunt!


As an only child, I was never sure if I'd be a "real" aunt. Happily, I married a guy with a brother! Last Thursday, Michael and his wife Staci welcomed Andrew Oliver Young into the world! (Yep, he's named after Andy!)

We spent some hours before his birth at the hospital, we heard Ollie's cries from the waiting area, and then I had to go let Lucy out because we had been gone too long. When I got back, I got to hold Ollie for a few minutes before he went to the nursery. Due to being out of town and a crazy week, we haven't gotten to see him again yet.

BUT, tonight we are going to see him and snuggle him and give him kisses. He is so tiny and so sweet. It's so hard to believe that there's a baby in the family now! I have very little experience with newborns so it will be fun to learn!
