I haven't been around again...

...but I promise I have a really, really, really good (gorgeous) reason.

Well make that two really good and gorgeous reasons.

My baby sister (who's not really much of a baby anymore) had another gorgeous little fella on Wednesday night!!

So, introducing the newest little man in my life .....

Charlie Maverick, born 7/7/10 at 1849hrs. Isn't he just yummy. *sigh*

I think it very safe to say my heart is in a puddle at his feet. He's almost identical to his big brother, which means we have two spunkalicious dudes on our hands.

Even though it was my sister doing all the hard work having a baby (and it was hard until the labour stage), I've been anxiously waiting for the call that she was going in to hospital for the past three weeks. Charlie was due around 24-27th June but the little monkey had his own opinion about when his birthday would be. I've had an overnight bag packed and rolling around in the boot of my car for weeks!! So glad I can wear my boots again, lol. :)

I was on call because Charlie has a big brother, Cameron Henry, aka Cam, who is 19months of gorgeous, little manliness.
Jo was finally admitted on Monday night to start inducement so I had a sleepover with Cam Monday night and then spent all day Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon/night over there too. He goes to day care a couple of days each week to hang with his friends, but I loved getting there to pick him up and coming home and playing and doing the nighttime routine with him.
He loves his shower (not bath, shower!!) and I think it very safe
to say that I love him more than I ever imagined I could. His poor mummy missed him sooooooo badly as she didn't get to see him until Thursday afternoon, a total of three days without her big boy!! And I also now know what IgglePiggle, UpsyDaisy and MakkaPakka means. :)

And here he is rocking the fluffy hair thing after his shower.

Anyways, this has been my focus for the past few days/weeks/months. I never thought poor Charlie was gonna arrive, but he did and is the picture of health. My amazing sister went home from hospital last night (would have been sooner but she waited until after we had visited). Less than 24hrs after giving birth and she wants to go home 'coz she's fine and well and is bored!! Ha!! Last time I think we'll hear her say that for a while.

So there you have it. Now I have three nieces and two nephews!! There is an abundance of spunky little peeps in my world and I LOVE IT!!

I promise I'll be back soon with a few cards to share.
Lots of sloppy Auntie hugs n kisses. Michey xxx

Oh congratulations on being an Aunty again! What a beautiful baby - he is PERFECT! Love the name. And wow - what a gorgeous toddler too. I have two little spunky monkeys too (26 mths and 12 mths) and wow, a handful but they are the most amazing people I know. I can see why you are so smitten with your little nephews.

OMG what a scrummy little baby boy. I want him. He makes me feel like having another. His big brother is a spunk. So cheeky. I missed my big boy when I was in hospital for 5days with our second. I cried when he came to visit as I missed him so much. Congrats to your sister.

Joy said...
