Auntie Ash!

Wow. I totally fell off the blog train – skipping over excuses, I’ll just say that I have thoroughly enjoyed and indulged this holiday season! Undoubtedly, my family received the most amazing surprise on Christmas with the addition of my very first nephew, Finley William. He is my sister and brother-in-laws first baby and is nothing short of perfect. Amy went into labor late morning on Christmas Eve, and Baby Finn arrived just after midnight on his due date – Christmas Day! I was lucky enough to be with Amy and Barret through the entire process which was nothing short of amazing. I have never seen my sister stronger or more brave. She was a literal rockstar and made labor look so simple the thought of making my own baby has crossed my mind a time or two .. no reason to be alarmed. 2012 won’t be the year of the Borntrager baby! I have promised my husband a few years of wedded bliss before we hop on that boat.

I have been lucky enough to spend an extended amount of time with the new little family (definitely worn out my welcome) and even managed to capture at least 100 photos of the little fella … but my sister is beginning her own little blog, and since Finn isn’t actually my baby, I better let her share those! Here’s one of my favorites from Finn’s first 24 hrs just to hold you over! Happy New Year everyone.

like mother like daughter

My sister Amy is just about 8 months pregnant – not that you can tell. She’s such a little one naturally. I took some fall maternity photos this weekend with Amy and her husband, Barrett. It was hilarious. Between Amy squatting in front of a hollowed out tree and Barrett hoisting her up to align her pregnant belly with the Stone Arch Bridge, we had TONS of laughs. I am prepping for her baby shower this weekend so my little nephew has been on my mind day and night. I am beyond “stoked” (pun intended) to become an Auntie for the very first time!

When I was looking through all the photos we took, I couldn’t help but recognize the insane resemblance Amy has to our Mom. Their smiles are identical. She would have loved to be part of this experience – can you even imagine a Nana Linda?! Too good to be true. Lord knows Mom is one proud lady! I have no doubt in my mind that Amy is going to hit the Top 10 Mothers of All Time list rather quickly (I have experienced her mothering). Be on the lookout for a baby shower post, coming soon! It’s going to be something to “read” about!
