(stolen with pride from Cammie!)
Parker's stint as the youngest cousin came to an end as of 4:00 AM on May 16th as Nykelle and Carson welcomed a beautiful Mia Bella into their home. Swallowing our envy and pride at having the "baby" of the family, we would each like to take a turn at offering our words of welcome:
Parker: (As interpreted by dad). Welcome "cuz". Just a word to the wise for us youngins, beware of Carter! His abundance of love spills over and bursts the privacy bubble at times, but all in all he is a cousin that wants the best for you. Your cousin Cali too is a bundle of joy. She may seem like she is 5 but her wisdom is beyond her years! I hope you are liking your stomach, because I sure don't. Perhaps you will be crawling before I do! I sure have tricked my parents into doing whatever I want them to do. It's all about the bottom lip!!! I love you and can't wait to eat yogurt bites with you! Good to have ya "cuz"!
Do you have runnin' shoes yet? When I heard you were coming I wanted to lace up the old sneakers and be there to love you and hold you! This is when it stinks to be in Castle Dale because I want to be there to hold my new little precious niece. I will be there soon, but in the meantime start wrapping that daddy of yours around that little finger!
Uncle DEVO: Howdy. What a great family to be a part of. I hope you have been workin' on that Italian language, it sure does help when it comes to family meals (may I recommend the Parmesan Chicken!). I look forward to seeing you and having you a part of the family. May I also recommend filling up as many diapers as fast as you can, keep those parents on their toes! Welcome "Mama "Mia""
