Strolling Around PetSmart

I take so many photos of my nephew because I just can’t help myself. First we took a look at the fish but he began yawning. Then we strolled over to the chirping birds. After a few minutes his pacifier became more interesting so we moved along to the cats and kittens.       I am joyful […]

That’s Snow Fun!

I am so proud of my sister Monica for letting her son partake in the same fun activities we enjoyed from our childhood. Ahh good times!       Omari looks like he’s having tons of fun sledding. I know my sister will make sure he has many more happy childhood memories because she’s a wonderful […]

Please Pray for Monica & Omari!

     My sister (Monica) and her son (Omari) got into a car accident this morning. She was rear-ended and it wasn’t her fault but unfortunately Monica’s vehicle was totaled. She took her son to the pediatrician to make sure he’s okay. Everything checked out that all is well. He was in a car seat […]

Sir Kiss-a-Lot

I was just looking at photos on my deactivated phone and came across this one of baby Omari kissing the Lamaze Sir Prance-a-Lot baby horse toy that his daddy got for him. It’s not even Thursday and I’m sharing an adorable throwback photo.      Now that Omari is 28 months old he can say Mommy, Papa, […]

Cuteness Alert Dimples Included

Do you hear the sound of a siren? It is to alert you of all the cuteness coming your way… My sister (Monica) had professional photos of her two-year-old son (Omari) taken! What a dapper little man… Look at those dimples… Cuteness Overload Complete!

White Chocolate Chips Red Velvet Cupcake

I thought my sister (Monica) gave me the idea for this but after baking them she said I must’ve dreamt that. Well, now they exist! A traditional red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting topped with white chocolate chips. You should try it! My nephew (Omari) went to town… Eating all the frosting off the […]

Funny Pacifier Face

Having Omari in my life, even though he’s not mine, has made me a better person. I smile and laugh so much more nowadays. Being in a good mood affects my overall well-being, which benefits more than just myself. I’ve developed much more patience and the ability to pour out love on a whole nother […]

Chocolate Goatee

Would you like something to eat that’s simple and sweet? How about Rice Krispies Treats or Cupcakes?      My nephew looked so funny when he was eating a chocolate cupcake. Baby Omari put his face first and ate more frosting than anything. Doing so gave him a chocolate goatee. He then handed the cupcake back to […]

Auntie’s Day

Today, not only do I celebrate the gift of being an auntie, but also my 34th and Carolina’s 12th birthday.  Oh my look at those puppy dog eyes. Mirror, mirror, on the baby jumper who is the fairest baby of them all? James (gasp) wait a second mirror did you just say James? You do […]

Toilet Paper Time

These funny photos of my nephew, all taken within less than one minute, remind me of the Love You Forever book cover. To be such a tiny little guy he moved rather quickly. The first timestamp says 6:10:52 PM and the last 6:11:49 PM on Tuesday, ‎June ‎18, ‎2013. At that time he was nine months old. Omari […]

Love You Forever

I purchased this book for my nephew so that he will know just that. Even though it’s a children’s book it made me cry. I’m not joking. When reading to him in bed as a smaller baby, I’d hold different books in the air while we were both laying on our backs looking up at […]

Fight the Power Nap

My nephew (Omari) makes me smile all the time. He even has the ability to do it in his sleep. His arm was raised for at least ten minutes but then he put it back down. I can imagine him standing at a mini podium giving a speech to his peers in that universal baby language […]
