Many of my friends are in the "having kids stage" of their lives & this scares the crud outta me. I LOVE babies, toddlers, kids & all the cuteness in between but I can't even raise a puppy at this point in time, much less think about a tiny human relying on me (shudder!).
Good thing my sister has not one but TWO ridiculously adorable babies for me to shower with love (twin love) - play with baby curls, smoosh baby fat rolls, raspberry baby bellies & all that delicious baby stuff.
But come time for a diaper change, or a cry fest - back to mom. Aunt Gigi ain't got time for that!
Over Easter weekend, my troupe (Ty & the two doggies) made our way back to my motherland - Arkansas, for my twin baby girl nieces' first birthday.
I seriously still can't wrap my mind around the fact that they are 1 already!
The babies made quite an eventful entry into this world causing my sister a major health scare (you can read the story straight from her on her blog), and we are beyond overjoyed to be celebrating a year of babies, a year of ever increasing health for my sister & a year of a happy growing family.
Etta Jane & Claire Elaine threw a major rager for their 1st Fiesta. #coolkids
I'm absolutely positive my 1st birthday didn't include a margarita machine!
|best birthday cake - dulce de leche... I had two huge slices!|
|Yes, Etta - I do hear that avocado is a good face treatment!|
|All Southern ladies cross their ankles while they eat... gotta start them young!|
|Claire is a pro at clapping, waving & her favorite - SMILING!|
Claire wasn't so sure about the first bite of her birthday pudding, but she soon learned its delicious ways!
|Etta has so got this down!|
|Seesters - seriously how chic is my sister with her new crop top hair!?|
|Arm chub for dayyyyys!|
|The beautiful family - turns out babies don't sit still very long for pictures! #wiggleworms|
|Ok, these faces might make me think about babies of my own... just a little bit... one day in the distant future!|
