permission to publish actual child's face, so I went with
Two little hands ready to grab anything. Two little feet just learning how to walk. All of that and a head full of big, fat curls, not worrying who loves him, who cares for him, and who he turns to in time of need, but he is just a baby. All he wants is his paci (pacifier), his Ba (bottle), his giraffe, and his mommy and da-da (daddy).
All I know is he is my nephew, a 1-year-old, who I just met, named Kirer, Ki-Ki for short, and he is the cutest little boy I have ever seen. Yes, as his aunt, I have seen lots of cute little ones, and the ones that came before him (meaning his cousins, father, and grandfather) were all cute as babies, but he is my present cute baby boy. I cannot believe that I am a great-aunt.
Yes, you heard it right, great-aunt. My nephew is the father, my brother is the grandfather, and my parents are great-grandparents. Now, I know what you are thinking if you have been following this blog for a while. Yes, I am single, and still looking in the love department and in the baby department.
So, I talk was trying to find the actual story that I wanted to reference to on being single, but I found this one instead, and I could not help but to reference to my then great-nephew-to-be in the last paragraph because his uncle was 2 at the time.
Back to whatever I was talking about.
It is days like this that make a person wonder why they were chosen to be in a baby’s life, especially if you are adopting. I often think why now. Sure, I want children, and I want to be that person that a child can come to. I am a young great-aunt, a young aunt, but I will be an older parent. I just published a post on this blog about being in a nesting mode, and I love it. For those who are in a rush to do anything in life, do not rush it, for it will come, IF it was meant for you. I was hoping to share this moment with a special man in my life, but you take what you can get. I am looking forward to mother, and hopefully we (child) can manage rather a man comes into our lives or not.
In the meantime, this aunt is enjoying the cuteness in all of her nephews and niece. I just you as my readers to do one small favor. Pray for us and Disney World, because 13 people will be going there and the cruise line in December. 8 adults and 5 kids. I have a feeling that Disney Word will never be the same again, but it will be fun.
