Dear Little One,

You are the best thing since sliced bread. When you were born, everyone said you looked just like me. Your Sweet Pea gown almost swallowed you whole; you were so small in our arms! You truly have the best aunt ever. Not that I'm biased or anything, but I love you more than life. Just a year ago, you were wearing a Frightfully Cute onesie - and guess what? I think you are still frightfully cute! Even though you only have 3 teeth and your hair is growing slower than a bread train with biscuit wheels. You are growing like a weed - babbling, roaring like a dinosaur, falling off couches, and mocking every single thing that Big Brother does. I love you very much, and I can't wait to see you in December!

(If you don't get Newborn Envy after looking at these two pictures, something is wrong with you!!!)

I miss you very much. The next time I see you, you will be a year and a half old. I cannot wait to see the new things you can do and say. Please work on the word Shannie, because I can't wait to hear you babble my name!

Aunt Shannie

PS. My buddy, Brittney, is 12 weeks pregnant! Hop on over to her blog and encourage her!


  1. Aw, you're so sweet! Thanks, Shannon!

    AND LOOK AT H! OMG! He is one of the most precious babies I have ever seen!

  2. His head was like the size of a grapefruit! SO small. It just fit in the palm of my hand :)

  3. AW! OMG, I cannot wait until Baby J is 1 minute old and teeny tiny! :D

  4. ME NEITHER! I hope you take approximately 350 pictures of J's first day.

    I also hope you include a birth story, because i want to know EVERY LITTLE DETAIL! ... you know how I am :D

    Maybe you'll be like Hilary and be on BLOGGER durign your labor! LOL! "Dear Blog, I am 4cm dilated.. I just thought I'd blog really quick.." ;)

    I'm sooooooo excited. I just hope the rest of your pregnancy zips by!
