its 314 and im still awake

My new lovely friend Victoria had these questions on her blog. I needed something to start off and write about. I’m so tired that I am now wide awake after a non-successful early morning trip to Shari’s.
Here goes:

It’s 3:14AM and I’m still awake//Late Night Survey

1. Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate?
Milk Chocolate. Too dark and bitter unless used as an aphrodisiac.
2. What’s your favorite color?
I love a few colors; turquoise is our coined wedding color and my two other favorites are magenta and lavender.
3. Do you have any creative hobbies?
I do have a creative side however it has always been in movement arts like dance or theater throughout school but I am wishing that at some point, I will become an amazing scrapbook artist. I have many other hobbies
4. What was your favorite subject in school?
English. I was great at brainstorming, outlines and creative writing. Poetry, freestyle, short stories, etc. It really makes me happy and I’ve enjoyed it for a really long time.
5. What is your favorite season? Why?
Warm weather is the best! However I do live in Oregon where let’s face it, its winter 365 days a year. Unless we end up with a hot summer and then it’s extremely hot for three months.
6. Who inspires you to sing like crazy when nobody is around?
Nobody actually, I do that all on my own. And I really only sing when no one is around. So I’m too shy and don’t really know if I sound good or not.
7. What’s your favorite dessert? Can you make it?
I love German chocolate cake and no I have yet to try to make it. Although I should, I have a few baking recipes saved so I’d like to try to create one in the crock-pot.
8. How did you learn to cook?
I haven’t I am currently in the process of learning to cook with the help of my mother-in-law. But I cook a mean Kraft Mac n Cheese! I’ve been known as the “box queen”.
Good night for now everybody! Feel free to snag this and put on your own blog to answer!

…It’s a BOY

 My new nephew is here!

So after nine months of waiting, our new and only nephew Christopher Joseph Emmaus is here! Congrats to sister Jenny, my niece Sydney (the new big sister) and the rest of my sisters, brother and our mom. He is a bundle of joy and I really wished we all lived closer to go see him in person. I cannot believe that I am an auntie again. I love having so many nieces and nephews. It has been a joy growing up around so many of them and getting to know each of their personalities and I’m sure this one will have a big attitude of his own, if he’s anything like his momma. He might even be a terror at times but melt your heart in other moments too. I’m sure that will be the case.

Around 11am I was so excited to hear he was born around 9:34am- 8lbs 14 oz 19 inches long and healthy and strong. He is one cutie and I am so glad that he is here and looks just like his mommy. He also looks like our brother a lot and the grandfather he is named after as well. It’s funny he looks somewhat darker than most of us and carried that Italian gene well.

Plus, I felt him kick when he was still inside, so we have a mini bond- that was very exciting! Yay! I felt his foot kick at my hand.  Much love baby and mommy, hope to see you soon!

Do you have nieces and nephews? Older sisters and brother who’ve had kids and/or live close? How involved are you in their lives  and what’s your favorite part of being an aunt/uncle?
