I’m the best auntie ever

This is not the most truthful statement. I’ve failed miserably in the Aunt department many many times. I have 9 nieces and nephews with one on the way, sometime July/August, it’s a girl! 3 boys 7 girls. Good odds I think.

My nephew actually cried when he found out my SIL was having another girl. Poor guy.

When I was hanging with the parentals this past weekend, my sister brought her family on over and we grilled out. Her hubby rocked the grilled chicken, not to mention everything else was fantastic.

But back to the cute little ones. I pretended I knew what I was doing and took some pictures of them. I hadn’t seen the youngest for months, so it was fun playing with her.

Prepare yourselves for loads of darling pictures of my nieces and nephew. I love them just a little bit.

I’m so happy (‘except when I’m screaming’ says her mom.)

Did I mention that I braided her hair? She loved it, not gonna lie. It was the first time I’ve ever done a little girl’s hair, not gonna lie about that either.

I know this is dark, but I like it this way.

I love her concentration.

These 2 have a special bond, I hear.

I liked having our shadows in the back and I like my sister’s expression.

Afterward, my niece asked if I would paint her nails. So I did both toes and fingers, then had my sister paint mine.

I sure hope I have 2 girls so they can have sister things to do. Very important, I think.

Do you have a sister? Are there certain things you would all do together?

Pin It Now!

I say you need some of your own. Like tomorrow. Do you need me to have a talk with Mr G-man and give him a few hints toward awesome ways to propose and future children names? 'Cause I'll do it!

Aw, so sweet! They are so adorable. I can't wait to be an Aunt....but I'm the oldest, so I'll probably have kids before the rest.

And yes, having a sister is so great. I have two! We have all kinds of girlie fun together!

Aww! So adorable! My sister is constantly dragging me to go to plays and shopping, and I force her to watch Hallmark movies and eat ice cream. Lots of ice cream! =D

This is adorable! I love my nephew to pieces and I can't wait to meet his little brother that is on the way.
I love being an aunt, it's awesome. :)

I'm the youngest of 3 girls...and while its fun, I wish I had a brother! My sister's are bff and I'm most the odd man, er girl, out. Wah wah. But so glad your nieces love each other :)

Cute! Well, you definitely know that I have a sister and even though we are far apart in age, we bond over shopping and the Backstreet Boys :-) We are two VERY different people (she is very private, I am not, she is introverted, I am not, etc.) but she is someone I can just hang out with and have fun without saying a whole heck of a lot :-)
