one for each year

September 24, 2012

Today, my one and only nephew turns four years old. Four years of being an aunt to this incredible little guy. There’s such a unique bond you share with a niece or a nephew…not my own, but my own.

It seems as though it can’t really be four years since my brother called to tell me the news that I was going to be an aunt for the first time. Or when my dad called to say, “It’s a Boy!” and when my mom called (through tears) to say, “He’s finally here!!” I can remember each phone call, wishing only that I could have been there to celebrate.

So, what do we do to celebrate Colin’s life miles and miles away? Well, we throw a little party in his honor, sing “Happy Birthday” via Skype, ship presents, and look through pictures of his life. And while we’re at it…here are four of our favorites.

Happy 4th Birthday, Colin. We love you so much.
