So something really amazing happened....
I finally gave in and bought these shoes!!
OKAY. That is good news, but it's not amazing...
I won these rings over at Fashion Indie Love Affair!!'
OKAY. Getting warmer, but still not the amazing news. What was it again? Oh yeah...
The arrival of my beautiful baby Nephew, Parker!
Parker Rhodes Mercado. May 22, 2011. 7 lbs. 14 oz.
What could be more amazing then this little slice of heaven being born??? Our family has been truly been blessed with a healthy baby boy. It brings great joy to my heart to say that both baby and mom are healthy and happy! Sarah was a real trooper throughout the whole thing, and her strength is inspiring.
It has been a long time waiting, but Parker is finally with us. The most amazing thing was seeing the joy and love on Shea and Sarah's face when they look at their little son. That love is truly beautiful. and cannot be replaced. God has truly blessed our family with an amazing boy, and I couldn't be more grateful. He is absolutely, 100% perfect. I am so excited to see him grow, and to watch Shea and Sarah be the great parents I know they will be.
Let me tell you, he is just too perfect for words. I love him so much. For someone who loves to write more than anything, I am truly speechless.
I don't know your stance on newborns, you might think they all look weird. I thought so too, until I met this little angel. He is so beautiful. Everytime I even think about him I smile!
I have more to say, but I just can't put it all in to words. So for right now, I just want to say how happy I am...
I am happy for Shea and Sarah, and the joy that this brings them.
I am happy for our family coming together to celebrate this little angel.
I am happy I get to be an auntie (a.k.a Tia)!
I am happy that there is so much love surrounding this little boy.
I am happy for Parker who basically has the most awesome family in the world.
It brings me to tears when I think about how much I love this little baby I barely even know. But what can I say....the first time I met him, he stole my heart.
I am sure once I gather my thoughts I will have more eloquent things to say. But right now all I can do is look at these pictures and smile, and count the seconds until the next time I get to see him! (This weekend!)
