My sister gave birth to her first child on December 9, 2011 (same as Jackson's birthday!). She did amazing, I am so proud of her! Gavin Ryan came into the world at 10:08am weighing in at 7lbs 8oz and 19inches long! He is also adorable and I love him so much. I didn't expect to have the feelings I do for this little boy, I feel like he is my own son. It was extremely difficult to leave him. I think it is because my sister and I are so close, and because I have children.
As I am typing this I am getting emotional, and it has been 2 weeks already. I don't remember my sister being like this when I had the girls, but I just think it is becasue I have children. I am having issues with knowing I can't drive over there whenever I want to see him. We always talked about getting together with our kids every sunday, like we did growing up. I am having a hard time knowing that we won't be able to do that. I want my girls to be close to their cousins. I want them to be like brothers and sisters. I am sure I will be able to get through this at some point. I just miss my sister and especially my nephew. I want him to be close to me and know that he can come to me for anything, I want to be able to babysit him whenever and take care of him when they need help.
But enough about me and my emotions! My nephew is absolutely adorable, I love him like he is my own. My sister and I have such a strong bond, that he is also now has a piece of my heart! Here are some pics I took of him! Enjoy!
