Ever since the birth of my nephew (2 days ago on Monday, October 14 @ 1:48 PM), I haven’t stopped thinking about him, my sister, or my brother-in-law. It’s so crazy that life keeps going on even after he’s been born into the world. Everyone walks around campus, following their schedules, while there is a beautiful 2-day-old boy out there that I call my nephew.
Ever since I met him, nothing has been the same. I feel completely changed and refreshed. I no longer care about petty tasks or drama that certain people bring. Why should I get caught up in those mundane things when there’s a sweet, innocent, handsome boy under the care of my sister and brother-in-law? Nothing can measure up to how great it feels to know that he’s part of the family.
It’s hard for me to focus in my classes, because all I can do is think about him, look at pictures of him on my phone, and yearn to hold him close to me again. Practically everything that everyone says to me makes me think of something related to him. I don’t want to be annoying to those around me, constantly mentioning him, but I can’t help it.
Needless to say, I love my nephew, and I always will. I am aware that he is lucky to be born into such a supportive, loving family, and I can’t wait to watch him grow. I am so proud of Kelly and Scott and know that they will be fantastic parents to their first-born and others to come.
