Yesterday, my sister drove in for one of her home stretch baby checkups with her hub, and they stayed for dinner (to celebrate his birthday – many happy returns, man). During the evening, there were 2 moments that will forever be etched in my memory and make me weak with the adorableness of it all.
My sister was sitting on the couch with Sabrina crawling all over her. Sabrina stopped on top of her belly, lay down, and snuggled. It was like she was telling her cousin things were pretty decent out here.
As they were leaving, Sammy came over to tell his cherished aunt goodbye (seriously, the love fest between Sammy and his Aunt Bubble is so deep, I have to wonder if he wouldn’t up and go live with her given the chance). He gave the standard side hug, took a beat, and them hugged her bump, patted it, and said “Bye bye, Baby!” Then, he waved at it.
OK, all together now: AWWWWW!
