New Cousin!

We are so happy that little Samantha Christine Schrage has made her appearance! Our children finally have a cousin! Kevin and I are now officially an uncle and aunt. We are overjoyed. And congratulations to Shannon and Jeff!

Last night after Samantha was born, I asked Kevin how it felt to be an uncle. We talked about how there is more fullness-of-family than before. It’s an absolutely wonderful feeling. We already love Samantha so much, even though we haven’t even met her yet.

And we look forward to another cousin when Megan and Kc welcome their little boy into the world next month. It will be so fun watching the three babies grow up.

Yeah! It really is an amazing feeling, being an aunt/uncle. I'm glad that you guys finally get to understand that emotion. It's hard to believe that you can actually love someone that isn't yours, but really is ... yours. Family is a wonderful thing!

And I'm super glad that we are all in the same family!!!!! :)

I am so used to being an uncle that it made me giggle a little bit to realize that this is the first time Kevin is an uncle. I had completely forgotten about that.
