Last weekend Dan was lucky enough to have a work trip scheduled near his parents’ home in Wisconsin so he was able to spend the weekend with his family. The best part was he got to meet his brand new nephew, Bodhi! Bodhi is just two weeks old so he was unbelievably tiny (except his feet and fingers, which like most of our family, were quite large).
Bodhi is the son of Dan’s sister, Mary, who lives in Milwaukee with her husband and step-daughter. We don’t see them nearly as much as we would like to so it was a special afternoon. Dan got to spend some real quality time with Bodhi in particular–he held Bodhi in his arms for over an hour. Heaven!
It was so much fun to think about holding our own baby at some point in the near future. Sometimes it feels so far away and it is so hard to be patient, but at times like this, it just fills both of our hearts with such joy. We’re so lucky to have supportive, loving families and we cannot wait to grow our own family.
