New cousins!

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

Well someone(s) in our family have been a bit busy this year…. Lucy welcomed not one but TWO cousins this summer. Baby Ryder was born on July 7, 2010 to Bethany and Joe.

And Baby Jack was born on August 5, 2010 to Emily and James.

Since Lucy is REALLY into knowing everybody’s name right now (sometimes we have to make up names – don’t tell! – when Lucy wants to know the names of random strangers), she worked very hard on learning baby” wydor” and baby jack’s names.

Both boys are happy and healthy and seem to be giving their parents very little grief. And they are so adorable. Eben and I are enjoying being the Aunt and Uncle, and we’re so happy for all the new parents.

Lucy and I got to visit with Ryder when he was just two weeks old.
Lucy was a little too enthusiastic. She really wanted Ryder to sit and walk and play with her. But now she’s come to understand that “Baby Wydor and Baby Jack get bigger, then play with Lucy.” (Also, during that trip to see Ryder, Lucy got her first taste of Waffle House, now that’s pretty special!)

And we were lucky enough to meet Baby Jack during our big New England Road Trip. For being only two weeks old, he was amazingly alert and oh, so adorable.

It’s going to be so much fun to watch all the kiddos grow up – Lucy has some serious tricks to teach her cousins!
