Cousin Riley

Even though Riley is technically already one because of Kenny’s siblings’ kids, he’s about to become cousin to a brand-new addition to the family…..



They announced the news to Nopsi’s side of the family at our Christmas celebration on December 18, when we gathered everyone together during halftime with the pretense of taking a family picture:


Then on Christmas Day Nola’s side of the family was told in a unique way, with, of course, a custom-designed t-shirt:

However, Nola, Nopsi, Kenny, and I were told on December 9, before anyone else knew. Erin and Jeff stopped by the house early that morning, which was a little odd. At first I thought Aunt E was just coming to see the boy on her way to school, but then I saw Uncle Jeff walking up to the door with her.

Then I knew. I just knew what they were coming to tell us. I even said to Nola before they walked in, “I bet she’s pregnant.”

They made sure everyone was in the kitchen, where Riley-bean was having his breakfast, and then Jeff pulled a picture out, saying that they had gotten their Christmas cards in and wanted to show us:


How cute is that??? Of course Erin found the idea on Pinterest. They had taken the picture just the night before and picked up the prints on their way over the next morning.

The baby, gender and name to be revealed upon delivery (who does that?), is due on August 4. So far Erin is feeling great, aside from being super tired. She and Jeff are both really excited to be parents, and I am so happy for them. Y’all know I’m here for you, in any way I can be. All you have to do is ask!

Congratulations, Aunt E and Uncle Jeff; Riley can’t wait to teach his new cousin everything he knows!
