This is a special post for Alex– the newest love of my life– from His aunt Jenn… but you guys can feel free to listen in!
Hey little man… aka Jenn’s budro,
I cannot believe that you are 6 months old today.. well at least if you lived in nepal you already would be!
Now in case you forgot who I am.. I am the crazy girl that talks to you from a box on the other side of the world. That box is called a computer and the other side of the world is called nepal– but I will teach you all about that someday.
I just wanted to wish you a happy 1/2 birthday and to let you know that I never knew I could love a little man so much. God gave me the miracle of getting to come home to america and see you born. I wish you could have seen your mama and daddy and grammy and gramps face when I showed up and suprised them to tell them I was coming to welcome you to this world. I will never forget it. Then you graciously allowed me and your mommy to spend one full day together.. then while we were playing WII tennis you decided to make your entrance into the world (well you did not enter at the moment THANK GOODNESS, but you announcd your desire to enter)
I will never forget the day you were born. I just could not get over the goodness of God that He would let me be there to meet you. I remember when they wheeled you into the intensive care nursury and it was love at first sight for me I never knew that something that actually did not belong to me could capture my heart and wrap it around your little finger like that. I could not wait to hold you… the moment I got to hold that little bundle of joy was the BEST moment of my life. AUNT JENN.. whew.. she loved you!
I really never wanted to put you down. Those 3 weeks with you were like heaven on earth and I remember ever moment of them. Everyone laughed at your Aunt Jenn because she wanted so many pictures of you… and her.. she could not help it. 1) you were the cutest thing EVER 2) She actually felt beuatiful in america– something about being able to shower will do that for you!
Well I cannot tell you how my heart broke in a million pieces when i had to leave you that day at the atlanta airport– i did not know anything could ever hurt that bad.. i guess you could tell by the tears streaming down my face. But I knew I had to follow God. and sometimes that is not the easiest.. but it is ALWAYS the only option. you remember that little man.
I love love looking at the pictures your moma puts up of you (www.gingerbreadfam.blogspot.com) The latest ones of you are the park are the cutest EVER. I can tell that we will have alot of fun laughing together.
Well our power is going out in 10 minutes and i have to dry my hair. .. but i had to wish my little budrom a happy half birthday. I cannot wait to hug your cute little neck again. We are going to get in SOO much trouble together.. because I am the aunt and I get to spoil you. I know you are going to grow up into a STRONG man of God because I pray that for you always.
i love you budro
