My brother drove four hours each way to pick us up from the airport. On that four hour car ride to his home, a lot of topics were covered in conversation, but the biggest was Quinn. He’s our first nephew and Charlie’s first kid, so he had a lot of, “When you guys have kids, make sure you..” and “I just really wish some had told us…” I had a million questions for him, but one of them was whether he and Kristin have decided if they want more kids or they’re good. Charlie got the biggest smile on his face, blushed a little, and said something along the lines of “We’ll just have to see.”
Fast forward to my very first time cuddling Quinn, when my sister-in-law blurts out that she’s pregnant! I couldn’t believe it, so much so that the entire trip I just kept repeating, “I can’t believe you’re pregnant!” over and over again. Quinn and 2.0 will be so close in age that Kristin says they’ll even be in the same class at school. LIKE TWINS. My dream, people!
Kristin let me shoot their “announcement” photo, which is so special to me for a number of reasons- At the time, we were the only ones in my family who knew they were expecting. (I’m a middle child and typically the last to find out these things- womp womp.) Quinn is also wearing the little Restoration Hardware Baby and Child bear jacket I bought him before we even knew he was a “he,” and his little airplane sweater (Janie and Jack!) was a Christmas gift from us. :)
I’m so excited to be an aunt again!!!!!!
