As soon as my poor sister and brother in law got married, the clock began ticking.  They needed to make me an aunt!  And in February I got the news that they had!  And somehow me, ME – Ms. Can’t keep anything a secret, managed to keep Sarah’s pregnancy a secret until she came home to tell our family.  I went from MOH (Maid of Honor) wedding consultant, to pregnancy consultant.  Sharing all those things NO ONE tells you before you get pregnant with my sister.  They did the new trend of waiting to announce the gender via cake, and it was a boy!  And “baby awesome” as he was named was due on my birthday!  Sure, my sister will tell you 10-26, but I feel her OBGYN was off and clearly the day was supposed to be 10-27!

However that day came and went with no appearance by Baby Awesome.  So we began to wait and wait and wait.  And then finally on 11/3, I awoke to the text that my sister was in labor and I was finally going to be an aunt!  And later that afternoon, Luke joined our family.  There was absolutely no way I was waiting to meet that lil’ guy so my mom, Maddie and I set out later that week to meet Luke.  Having birthed 9lb+ babies myself, Luke was the tiniest thing I’d ever held!  Of course photos were a must while I was out there.  And my sister, might have a slight addiction to etsy.  Luke didn’t mind the football, or the hockey, or the tooth (can you guess what my brother in law does?), but the golf outfits he was just not having (my sister owns/designs for GolfHer Girl).  Let me tell you, it was not easy to photograph this poor unsuspecting baby in MSU gear <puke> but I did it.

March can not come soon enough!  When I get to see my sweet Luke again and of course get more wonderful photos of him :)
