If it wasn't overly obvious from the months of my sister's baby related comments, my sister leslie is preggers! This will be the first baby in my direct family (making me officially an auntie!) and the second in the extended fam (oh, I guess more like 6th in the extended extended family - if you include all those 3rd and 4th cousins..). I told her I'd do a post about it once she put up some images and behold - my new niece/nephew at four months(ish):

Can't really tell how cute it is going to be, but I'm sure it will be adorable! This also gives me the wonderful excuse to start searching out baby crafts to get working on! I may have already purchased a super adorable baby craft book a while back in kelowna, but don't really want to write about it here because then my sister will see and ruin the surprise! Same with a few items I've been checking out on etsy. But I'm still all for ideas! Any great baby tips and crafty resources you have to share?


  1. The best part about being the 'cool aunt' is that you get to have all the fun and then return them before they crash!

  2. I can hardly wait to be a Grandma! Maybe I will make the baby something! Ha ha as if I won't make something. Mom soon to be Grandma

  3. Fun baby tip #712: Whenever they're quiet or distracted, jump out at them and surprise them. keeps them on edge. And also shows them at a very early age exactly WHO IS BOSS.


    (seriously, though - super exciting stuff!)

  4. How are you going to be the super cool auntie if you never come to visit? Hmm? I guess geeky crafts will help some :)
