I am excited to announce the arrival of my newest nephew, Ferris William. He was born Saturday around lunch time and weighed in at 8 lbs 9 oz. Mom(my sister Victoria) and baby are doing wonderful. He is a cute little guy and is already so sweet and snuggly. Don't you just love brand new babies? I am excited to dote on this little guy. Here are some pictures I took while visiting last night. No matter how many babies I meet I am still amazed at the miracle it truly is. And my sister is a rock star, that is all there is to it. I am excited to live near her for a change and help her any way I can.
Welcome to the World, Ferris! And congrats to his family and their newest member. He's a keeper!
He wouldn't wake up for my little photo shoot. Probably because I was wheeling his bassinet around and opening the blinds and shining the flash in his face. Annoying Aunt with her camera. But I did shoot a short video of him while he was awake. So stinkin cute!
Oh and I forgot, I mentioned in an earlier post about us doing something I have wanted to do since we moved here. We finished our fire pit! I love that you can have fires in your backyard here. We have an abundance of yard waste so this is going to be a huge help to getting our yard maintained. We have been doing a little every week, but now we can burn the branches and junk. So we pulled up the grass, dumped a ton of dirt onto the area. We have a surplus of dirt too, and dumped out the sandbox because the sand was icky. Then proceeded to roast marshmallows and make smores. It was a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to having campfires a lot this fall!
