My uncle and I were emailing back and forth this morning about the new ballpark that is being built here in town. He got to tour the stadium yesterday and was rather impressed. He had a much different feeling than others he was with since he knew that Eli was the one down there setting the steel. Somehow our email turned from the ballpark, to jobs and work in Reno right now, to the following:
(Debbie = my aunt, Lori = my mom, Laura = my cousin)
"My wife is at this fever pitch about the baby. I'm excited too....but it is different for women. I think the fact that Skylar is the first of all our kids makes it even more special. We're moving into a new phase in our lives. She and your mom talk every morning about the baby. It is so cute........this morning Debbie called telling Lori that you can't have the baby when we're gone to Denver for Laura's volleyball...March 19-22. So, the pressure is on you and Skylar, Steph!!!!
Also, Deb was telling me how she's looking forward to taking care of Skylar with your mom when you go on your honeymoon. It is really cute."
Isn't that cute? This is the same aunt who personally hand made all my shower invitations and jazzed up Skylar's letters for her room. There is no doubt in my mind how loved this little girl is and how welcome she already is into the family!
