As of yesterday morning, I am a first-time aunt, thanks to the arrival of Philip Edward! Every now and then the timing of living half-way around the world just works out and we ended up being in San Diego to greet Prince Philip 12 hours after he was born! What is also funny is that we also managed to be their first visitors–we really treasured our time with them.
The little guy missed being a Christmas baby by three hours!
Of course, the Mr. had to pull the Japanese bunny ears!
But he was also quite sweet with the little guy, whom along with his brothers, he has been lobbying to call Pepito.
The proud Papa, also named Philip, above is a Lietuenant in the marines, so the little guy was born on base at Camp Pendleton. Check out his little onesie and the nursee’s camos!
I was very happy because our great timing meant that I could make sure that my knit blanket was given and used on day one, which is very special. I was racing to finish it until last week!
It’s hard to believe how excited I am about being both an aunt and a godmother for the first time. Being a first-time godmother and a recent Catholic convert, I would love to hear suggestions for fun traditions, so chime in if you have any ideas for me.
