Meet Philip Michael

When my daughter got off the bus yesterday, I welcomed her with a big hug at our front door as usual. She immediately said, "Mommy, your shoes are off!!...APRIL FOOLS!!!"

And that was only the beginning, my friends.

Kellyn was April-Foolsin' me alllll day long.

"Mommy, you left the refrigerator open!...APRIL FOOLS!" (she actually fooled me this time!)
"Mommy, your shoes are untied!...APRIL FOOLS!"
"Mommy, this is a real seal!...APRIL FOOLS!" (stuffed animal seal)

She cracks herself up and has become quite the little trickster.

Anyways...let's move on to some bigger and better news:

We went to meet my brand-spankin'-new nephew, Philip Michael, last weekend.

It's been so long since I've snuggled such a little baby. Forever, maybe? At 7 pounds, he was much smaller than Kellyn (8 lb, 10 oz) and Jude (10 lb, 1 oz) ever were! He's such a cute little thing...I'll let the photos do most of the talking:

I loved catching a glimpse of his sleepy smiles, smelling his new baby smell, and having his little hand grip my finger.

I was in awe as I watched Jude be so gentle with his new little cousin. And I can tell Kellyn is already so in love with Baby Philip. She proudly said, "I'm his big-sister-cousin!!" and "Now I have two little brothers!" haha. She might be a little confused, but it was too sweet to correct. :)

Philip, we love you! I just wish we didn't live so far away!
