My Sister Is Awesome

I very clearly recall being in the backseat of Ian's parent's Jeep, on the way to the airport from a recent trip, getting a phone call that I was about to become an Aunt. Pretty crazy! I knew that she would eventually have kids... but it's very odd when it becomes a reality. (I must note that I still continually think of myself as a teenager... I'm too young to be an Aunt! Even with the idea of Ian and I buying a house... I'm too young to buy a house! Yeah... somewhere between high school and now I, kind of, grew up).

On September 9, 2008, I got a call from my mom saying "Well, you're an Aunt"! Of course, Cooper Jason Petty was born in dramatic fashion. He was "old man" cute at first.. but now he is just downright freaking adorable. Could you ask for a cuter ringbearer?

Just seeing the joy that Ian had when he got to play with him was awesome enough! (I'm not supposed to mention it but remember the Star Snack Incident?!?) So, thank you to my sister for making Ian and I an Aunt and Uncle.

Did she stop there? Oh no! She raised the bar and on April 10, 2010 (like a millisecond ago)... Kamber upgraded us to Aunt & Uncle 2.0 with the addition of Max Joseph Petty. I really can't wait to meet him in two weeks! Monkey Butt!!

In short... thank you for giving us two adorable nephews and adding to our family. I have no doubt that you will continue to be an awesome mother. I can tell just by Cooper's demeanor (minus the terrible almost two's part) that you are doing a great job. Heck, he hung out for how long in a suit at my wedding? What kids are willing to do that? I really hope you have a great Mother's Day! See you in two weeks!
