"You yourself begin all over again, in them, with them, and so there is something more to the world again"

There are several little humans in my life, all of which I don't get to see nearly enough. I miss them all dearly, so I thought I'd put some adoable pictures of them up on the blog.

This little dear is Shea. He is my first REAL nephew... or he will be come October. He is the product of Jon's sister Liz and her husband Derek. He is oh so cute and just learning how to crawl. I haven't seen him in over a month, which, in baby time, translates to dozens of developmental milestones that I have missed. He lives over three hours away from us right now, which deeply hurts my heart. Depending on their job situation, they may be moving closer to us somewhat soon, though! I hope i hope i hope!

I bought him that cute little hat by the way! I got it this summer from the Mono Lake Committee!

These little buggars are my cousins Cory and Jordan. They live in Oklahoma and are my Dad's sister (Julie) and her husband's (Kermit) kids. They are five yrs (almost 6!) and three yrs. They are crazy little heathens, but I love them to peices.

Recently my Aunt Julie asked Jon and I if we would be willing to be Jordan and Cory's legal guardians should something happen to both her and Kermit. Even though I'm sure nothing bad will ever happen to them, nor would we ever want anything to, it is very touching to be asked and to be so deeply trusted. I have some of the best memories of my life going to visit my Aunt Julie and Kermit with my sisters, and so I can't wait until Jordan and Cory are old enough to come visit Jon and I and stay for a week or something. I REALLY wish they lived closer, but even an 8 hour drive is worth it to see their nutty faces.
