Happy Birthday Baby D!!
Today is my nephew, Derek's, first birthday and I am feeling bittersweet. On the one hand I'm SO proud of the parents my brother and Jessica have become. They have become responsible and attentive and parental beyond my wildest dreams. They made a REALLY good egg.
However, I am sad. Derek was born 3 weeks before I left the States, so I haven't had the chance to really get to know him. Our interactions consist of me cooing and laughing and playing peekaboo to the webcam on Sunday nights. I can only imagine what he thinks of Aunt Mindy...
Isn't he cute?
