Bebe Turd

Nine years ago today this is what I was doing ...

at the Logan Regional Hospital with Nephew 1 anxiously awaiting the arrival of this little guy ...

Be still my heart.
Nephew 2 ... also affectionately known as Bebe Turd.

These two bebes have been one of the greatest blessings in my life.

Bebe Turd was born premature with major complications along the way. So much so that my brother-in-law jokes that he finally paid Bebe Turd off just four years ago. We were thrilled to finally own him. :)

The hospital still owned him at this point. ;)
Bebe Turd and I are what Anne of Green Gables would call, "kindred spirits".

One of my favorite memories when he was little is how he would run into the house running for me, calling my name.
And when he was a sad little boy he'd come to his Aunt Meme.

 But to think that he was always this tender would be misleading. Extremely, extremely misleading. :)

He's a little firecracker.

And I would have it no other way.

I could just eat him right up.
Adore this face. Angry eyebrows and all!

My sassy lil' bebe!
And some favorites over the years ...

Thanksgiving ... probably 2006??

Fall 2007. I took him ice skating for his very first time this day.
Overnighter in Salt Lake in ... summer of ... 2009? Yesh, 2009.
SLC trip at the zoo, summer of 2009.
For always we have done this ... Bebe Turd will stand facing me, while holding hands and I will flip him upside down like this. I will keep doing it as long as he asks. :)

Happy birthday, my Bebe Turd. I love you somethin' fierce.


Never forget it.
