My sister had her baby boy yesterday!

This is him…

Gus. Augustus Milo. Gus Gus.

I love Gus.

He weighed in at 9 pounds, 10 ounces.

Fat Gus.

Plump Gus.

Healthy Gus.

This is Gus with his Daddy…


Sweet Gus.

Lovely Gus.

This is me with Gus…

Shhhh, Gus.

I love you, Gus.

Be sweet to your parents, Gus.

I have a little boy who is going to be so happy you’re here, Gus.

My sister is a rock star and did amazingly well. She’s feeling good and healthy and all those other sorts of things the amazing women of the world do.

All I could think of when we were all together in the hospital room after Gus had been born was what a pretty person my sister was.

Gorgeous Rachel.

Pretty Rachel.

Wonderful Rachel.

Yep. I think their little family is just about perfect.

  1. I think you’ve perfectly captured the joy one feels when a sister (especially a sister) brings a new life into the world. Congrats to Rachel! Enjoy that sweet baby!
