THERE ARE A LOT OF PICTURES ON THIS POST!!!
Welcome to my new nephew, Benjamin Arthur Cox!!! Born January 30th. 6 pounds, 11 ounces, 193/4 inches long...and amazing!
Last Friday, I decided at the last minute to fly to North Carolina with my dad and surprise my sister, Brian and Sam. My mom was already there! Eva did a really great job on both flights on the way to NC.
When we got there, they didn't seem super surprised, but were happy (or at least I thought so!!).
We waited with great anticipation for the baby's arrival...all day Saturday, all day Sunday, all day Monday-until Jen and Brian finally went to the hospital and welcomed their new little boy!!
Luckily, we had a really fun time as we waited! We played at the park and in the backyard-the weather was beautiful! Sam and Eva had sooo much fun together!!! It was really great watching them play together...Sam took Eva "hunting" for the kitties and played cars, dinosaurs and super heros with her (Eva = tom-boy??). He kept referring to her as "just a baby" --super cute! He is so funny! I love him...and Eva does too!!
