You wanna go where everybody knows your name (daa daa daa daa dumm dumm)

I'm going home. In exactly 6 days my feet will touch NJ soil and I am thrilled. I haven't been home since October of last year and I have been home sick ever since. Especially with the birth of my first born child, the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. I am beyond words excited to be back in my comfort zone, the place where everything is comfy cozy and everybody knows me. Most importantly everyone will get to meet little man.

My family is the equivilent to the crazy Greek family featured in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Except we aren't Greek, we are just a crazy family of white folks. We are loud, nosy, and always having gatherings of at least 20 of us. And I love every second of it.

My grandparents, little man's Great Grand Parents will be meeting little man for the first time. These two folks took over in so many aspects of my life. My dad bailed early in my life and my mom was busy working crazy hours trying to support 3 babies and herself. So my grandparents attended all of our major life functions. My grandfather is a voice of reason in the chaos that is my family. He will and always has been my favorite person. I can not wait for his arms to wrap up and snuggle my precious baby boy the way that he did so many times when I needed him. And my grandmother. ahhh the pure joy that her face will bring is immeasurable!!

And then my little sisters. The 2nd loves of my life. Will be meeting their nephew for the very first time. The "baby" of us 6 girls is getting her first dose of "babyness" ever so that should be interesting. And the other two will be the best little Aunties little man could ever ask for.

So . . . . . . the blog will be quiet for a while. I've got lots of hugs, kisses, and visits to catch up on but wanted to share this moment of excitement and anticipation before it all begins :o)

Adios Mis Amigos,


  1. I am so jealous! I'm an only child and both my parents and grandparents have passed away and I'm insanely jealous of all the connections you have. Have a great time sharing your little one!
    I love that your grandfather is your favorite person! Lucky you!

  2. Have a wonderful trip! Family is the best :-).
