They grow up way too fast...

These are the kiddos that have brought us so much joy over the years. There are 20 of them (not counting the two on the way!). I was 16 when I first became an Aunt and that little nephew that I would carry around on my hip and spoil rotten is now 16! I told Alex that I wish they would stop growing. I wish they were still tiny babies. I'm sure their parents don't feel that way, but as their Aunt, I would love that. It's hard for me to believe that some are out of diapers, eating solid foods, starting school, starting to DRIVE, have girlfriends/boyfriends, are thinking about which college they want to attend...seriously!? How did they get so big? I'm going to make sure of it, that A doesn't grow this fast. ;)

These kiddos are so loved by their families. Today I want them to know - they are especially loved by their Uncle Alex & Aunt Jill. They each hold a special place in our hearts and we think they are the coolest kids on the planet. We can't wait to see little miss A with her cool cousins...she's already one lucky girl!



BIG ((HUGS)) to each one of you, today!

Love,
