Jacob David Reyes!!!

On February 12 my nephew, Jacob David Reyes, was born. He is the most handsome baby boy ever! I got to stay in San Antonio with them from the 13-18. I had a friggin blast. I got to play with Abby and Jacob. Naomi and Matthew are incredible parents. I hope I can be as fun, flexible, and giving when I become a parent. I love you guys! Here are a few pictures of my beautiful niece and nephew...

Such a beautiful face!

Abby is such an amazing big sister, always making sure he is OK. She calls him sweetie a lot.

I absolutely LOVE holding him!

We are going to have a nephew in just under a week!! We are so friggin excited! We are absolutely in love with our niece, Abby. She is one of the loves of our lives and it is such an incredible blessing that we get to add another love to our lives. We cannot wait to meet him next week. We will definitely miss being a big part of his life like we have been with Abby, but will look forward to their visits to Nashville and our visits to San Antonio.

It will be weird not having the whole family all in one city. Until a year ago, we all lived in Dallas and saw each other at least once a week. Now Matthew and Naomi live in San Antonio, Scott lives in Italy, and Mindy lives in San Fransisco. Crazy how big a difference one year makes. I know that we are all experiencing new things being on our "own" and I do believe that these experiences are bringing us closer together, even though we are further apart in distance. We are slowly learning and becoming more like Christ and I would not want it any other way.

I am, however, trying to convince, at least, Scotty to move to Nashville when he decides to come home from living his dream. I think it's working. AND I am slowly convincing my best friend, Laura, and her husband to move there too, eventually. Again, I think it's working :)
