I am new to this whole blogging thing.. So i decided to look through my iphoto for some inspiration. My iphoto is pretty much filled with pictures of my five favorite children: Josh, Anna, Max, Becca, and Natalie. I decided that I love them so much that they deserve a blog post (I am also obviously campaigning for the favorite aunt title).
He is the first born, my sister nicole's oldest child. He is the sweetest little boy around. One day, shortly after the earthquake in Haiti, I answered the phone and it was Josh. He was calling to tell me he was doing a read-a-thon and wanted to know if I would donate money for every book that he read. When I asked him what it was for he told me that there was an earthquake in Haiti and they needed money so "Bob the Builder could build them new houses, because they didn't have a T.V. or anything!" It melted my heart.
She is my sister Amy's oldest. Natalie is the smartest girl I know. Over Christmas break we did puzzles and played a lot of memory. When we were putting together a puzzle of the Nauvoo Temple (a 100 piece puzzle, she is four) she would laugh at me when I would try and put two pieces together and say, "NO! Jessie, it goes over HERE!" She was always right, I was always wrong. She also had to help me when we were playing memory, but even with her help she would still crush me.
Another one of Nicole's great children. She is so happy, and can make everyone around her happy. She also LOVES babies. There is one specific baby that she likes to play with at my mom's house. Brady and I convinced her to name that baby Sandy (my mom's name). When she is over playing she will randomly say "I am going to put Sandy to sleep" or " Sandy is so sad, I better feed her." My mom hates it, I think it is hilarious. Love her.
Amy's youngest child. She is just perfect, and she definitely knows it. She calls me "Jess-Jess" and I think it is darling. She is also the only one that might like me better then my mom. I deserve it though, I would do whatever she told me to do all of Christmas Break to earn her love. Including chasing her around the mall, spinning her around over and over, and taking her outside for countless hours. She has me wrapped around her finger and that is okay with me.
Last but not least, Baby Max is the newest addition and he is just darling. I could hold him for hours. He has the best new baby smell, tons of dark hair, and the cutest little noes. I heard he can smile and laugh now too, but I have not witnessed it yet. He is just perfect.
Here are a few more pictures that I just could not leave out.
