Tag Archives: babies are cute no matter how old they are

cousins are kind of my favorite.

can I just tell you how much I love my adorable cousins? they are growing up… it’s insane. my cousin, sloan has her first boyfriend! it’s baffling! I remember changing her poopy diapers… her mom would realize she’d pooped and she’d giggle and shout, go find sara! funny part? sloan would come find me… I was pretty much the master of poopy diaper disposal at the ripe ole’ age of 12. sloan, now in high school… won’t even look at g’s little tush! haha…

now reaganne on the other hand, is in heaven with little g. she’s been my little shadow… grabbing bottles when I need them, taking photos for me with my camera… matter of fact, as I type this, she’s got g on her lap and she’s talking to him and feeding him so he’ll go to sleep. I’ve already told her I’m going to stuff her in my carry-on… because I’m pretty sure after having her help for the last two days… I simply cannot go back to living without her. reaganne was always the baby that was glued to me… I will never forget the second summer I came to see her, she couldn’t have been more than two years old… she saw me… stood up and took off running… I was shocked that she remembered me… and even more shocked when she attached herself to my leg and hugged so tight I thought she was going to cut off the circulation! she was MY baby… I don’t care if my aunt did carry her for nine months. ::silly face::

garrett, sloan’s twin… (literally)… doesn’t know what to think 0f g. I’m sure he loves him, but he’s a teenage boy. he’s more interested in defcon 5 or whatever game he’s playing. he’s the sweetest boy I know though… so considerate of others. I have to hand it to my aunt and uncle… they’ve raised quite the bunch. garrett as a baby had the most contagious laugh you have ever heard in your life, I guarantee it. I was telling him about it today. it was a straight up belly laugh. and it would go on and on. I’m laughing right now just thinking about it…

I know they’re my cousins… and I’ll be the first to admit how redonkulously partial I am… but they have turned out to be quite the amazing bunch. beautiful, smart, HILARIOUS, fun… outgoing… just fun kids. seeing them and remembering them when they were g’s age just gets me even more excited to watch him grow and see what kind of person he’s going to become. on the other hand though, thisĀ  visit has also reminded me… how truly fast they grow. I’m going to try and enjoy every minute I can… poopy diapers and crying fits included… what? I did use the word try… heh. going to go back to enjoying these little… I mean uh, all grown up, cutie cousins of mine…. toodloo…

oh and p.s…. here’s a total mama win I would like to share with you…

baby g sleeps on vacation… in his own little porta crib thing. kind of makes me love him even more… haha.
