baby, it's been a while...

....but I think you will agree that this baby was well worth the wait! He is my nephew, Colton James Crawford. And while I have many entries to post in an attempt to catch you up on the latest, I must begin with him. I mean, what kind of aunt would I be if I didn't?!

I will never fully understand how we are able to form a love so genuine and pure in what seems like an instant. I've experienced this multiple times now, with the births of each niece and nephew. Your heart just makes room...and it's probably one of the sweetest experiences in life. I'm blessed and thankful that I was able to experience that joy (yet again) while in California this last month. I walked in the door a week after my nephew's birth, held him, and instantly loved.

Making things even better was seeing my oldest nephew love his new little brother so well. How it's even possible, I don't know, but my love for them just continues to grow. And when you see these Crawford might just understand!

and the big brother....
