I’m an Aunt to six lovely people. This weekend I was able to hang out with two of them: my niece Lily, who lived with us from age 8 months to 14 months and is now living with my parents, and my nephew Thomas, who was born ON my birthday last year. I ONLY took pictures of these two while up in Virginia this weekend. Enjoy!
Lily woke up to ME in her bedroom and I was able to get her breakfast and milk. She knew exactly how to put on the TV and on what channel. I'm so glad she's thriving with my parents.
Baby Thomas. Lily rubs his head and says with her lisp "thomath ith tho hanthome"
Lily late Saturday night. Using the lightscoop.
playing in the laundry basket. Mema (my mom) says she does this all the time.
My sister and baby Thomas after a long day of (grownups) painting the guest cottage. Thomas had spent the day with his Nana, but was dropped off to us just in time for his nite time bottle. Lightscoop again here.
Thomas staring at Papa (my dad) with his own daddy Nathan in the background.
Lauren helps Thomas warm up to Papa with a few cuddles and tickles.
A great smile!
A few more tickles and Thomas was warmed up to Papa. No more tears!
Time for Thomas to have dinner.
Look at all those teeth~ He looks different depending on if you see his teeth or if you don't. Those blue eyes are CRAAAZZYYY.
Sunday morning before we all say goodbye. The painting was done and it was time for us kids to head home. Baby Thomas is perched on his daddies head, just the right spot to REACH for the ceiling fan.

My favorite line from this blog post is the following.
Ask God to help you conquer anger because it can destroy your relationship with your children. Praise them ten times more than you correct them.
And this line also
anger shows your worst side and often times when we have angry outbursts, our anger is worse than what the child has actually done!
I really need to think on that. Is my yelling response WORSE than the original offense? Usually the answer is yes!
This blog post really made me think, and I thought it worth sharing.
