My babies.

Hello, Readers! (All 5 of you.) The rumors are true; I am, in fact, still alive. Today I had this crazy idea to blog, so... here we are. Today is a happy day because one of my best friends gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Now, anyone who knows me at all knows that I have wanted to have kids since I was a kid myself. I've always been a mother at heart- I guess that's what happens when you are the oldest of 10 children. I always give my 12-year-old brother a hard time when he asks my mom to make him a sandwich or get him a glass of water. "Are you KIDDING me?! Boy, when I was your age, I was changing your diapers! Make yourself a sandwich!" =) I know that once I find a guy who I like enough to marry, I will, and I'll have babies of my own. He's got to be out there somewhere, right? Until then, though, I get by with a little help from my friends... most of which have darling little kiddos who I just love. I actually have four "godchildren" now. (I know, I know- you're supposed to be Catholic for that. But hey, it still works.) I have decided it's high time to dedicate a post to my little munchkins. Warning: you are about to experience a cuteness overload. Proceed with caution.
Samantha~ Sam was my very first "godchild." My amazing friend Alli brought this beautiful girl into the world 5 years ago, & I still remember holding Sam at the hospital for the first time like it was yesterday. She will always have a very special place in my heart.
Ava Belle~ Ava is Alli's second baby, and as you can see, she puts the Gerber baby to shame. She is a year old now, so this picture is pretty outdated, but it's my favorite picture of her. I don't see Ava as often as I'd like to, but I am hoping this will change once Alli & Davin move back to Bountiful. =) I love this pretty little girl to pieces!

Tristan~ One of my best friends, Manda, brought her 3-month-old baby boy to the daycare I worked at back in 2008. That's actually how I met Manda, and my little love, T-Man. I was lucky enough to be able to take care of T at the daycare until he was a year old, so I got to watch him grow up. I am absolutely in love with this little man. He will be 3 years old in a few months, and I can hardly believe how fast time flies.


Today's birthday girl, Audrey~ This gorgeous baby showed up just this morning- Manda's second baby. I won't meet her until I go to the hospital tomorrow, but I cannot wait to hold her. You did good, Manda!

So there ya have it, my four adorable godchildren. I'm a very lucky Auntie to have all of them in my life.
And of course I can't forget Miss Tegan! She isn't my "goddaughter," but she sure is one of my favorite kids ever. I spent some quality time with Tegan last summer while I babysat her for Mandy. My siblings adore her, as do I. She and Tristan had lots of fun playing together, as well. Mandy, you know that whenever you need a sitter, I'm the one to call! =)

Well, I hope you made it through the wall of cuteness. I really am going to try & blog more. So stay tuned!

Awe, my two girls. :D Those are some cute Godchildren you have. I can't believe I have never even met Tegan. So sad.

You have always been great with kids. If I ever need a full-time nanny your name would be at the top of my list!
