Aunt Courtney

You know what’s better than renovating and blogging and most things in general?

Being an aunt.

I’m spending the week at the beach in Stone Harbor with my sister, Kelly, and her baby girl, Lily.

Mama Kelly lets me help with the feedings and I get to play with her and rock her to sleep.

image

Lily is the tiniest little thing and yet she makes the LOUDEST noises…sometimes we’re not sure what end they come out of. 🙂

image

Getting the punkin to go to sleep is the biggest challenge and deserves to be celebrated with a glass of wine once it’s accomplished!

Mama Kelly has wayyyyy more pictures on her blog: http://www.kellybrennantv.com/blog

It’s amazing how babies bring so much JOY into a family!

Work and Play

We did more play than work this past weekend, but how could you not when it felt like summer in the ‘Burgh?!

Mark did his part in the Steel City Pizza contest that was held in Arsenal Park in Lawrenceville. No pizza for me, but I did drink a tub of fresh lemonade.

image

I went out for a girls night and Mark started sanding our stair treads.

image

We’re giving each one a light coat of polyurethane.

Once we get them back on the staircase, we’ll put the railing on.

You know I can’t write a blog post now without showing off my baby girl niece!

Absolute PERFECTION!

I discovered something new this week. I found out that my sister is one TOUGH Mama Bear.

image

We all were soooo excited when Kelly went into labor and got her room at Magee Hospital.

Things were good for the first few hours, but then it got DIFFICULT.

For 36 HOURS, my sister battled ridiculous contractions. We took turns being with her in her room and sleeping in the hallway.

image

The doctor finally said Kelly needed a C-section and so she went back into the OR with Kevin by her side.

image

At 10:07 on Tuesday morning, Lillian Jane joined our family.

image

Lily is perfect. She’s the best eater (and pooper) on the floor and has the most beautiful little face I’ve ever seen…look how sassy she is!

image

Everyone is in love with her! And she already made her TV debut! CLICK HERE TO SEE IT!
