When Riley was born I knew that my life was changed forever. What I didn’t realize, was just how much he would change other people’s lives as well.
For example, my sister.
Growing up, my sister and I butted heads constantly. We fought all the time, we were at each others throats well until my sister left my college. It wasn’t until we were both in our twenties that we finally started having that sisterly relationship everyone always talked about.
And it was awesome.
And over the years my sister has been there. Through relationships, job struggles, emotional rollercoasters, all of it, she’s been there.
Now that Riley has arrived, she’s been there for me and for him even more. She’s taken to the role of Aunt/Godmother to the fullest degree and I couldn’t be happier. I seriously love seeing the two of them together.
When Riley was first born and my sister came over, I did not hold back on the post-delivery life. And the baby poop stories. And baby vom. And all the things that are just a little too gross but also hilarious to the non-parents. Kourtney laughed it off (even though I’m pretty sure I scarred her for life, ha) and still offered to hold the bebe, change his diaper and get in all the snuggles she could.
Over the past nine months she’s come over with lunches, dinners, drinks and a helping hand. She’s given Matt and I a few nights out by babysitting the munchkin and she’s just been another adult for me to converse with during the day, ha.
What I’m saying here is that, my sister is a gem. And with her birthday being tomorrow I just wanted to use this space to let her know. And to say thanks.
Auntie Kourtney, we love you and I honestly don’t know how we would have survived the past nine months without you.
happy tuesday!Posted in Me Things
