Our new roles...

Last Thursday, on March 24, Reid, Caeden and I officially took on some new roles in our family.  Reid became an uncle for the first time, I became an aunt for the first time, and Caeden has a new cousin!!  Amber, my sister, had Emerson Paul Gutshall at 9:36 that morning, and we were all there to hear his first cries!  As we were standing outside the door and heard him crying, Caeden kept saying, "baby, baby, baby" over and over.  Little does he know they're going to be great buds growing up (hopefully..)! 

I've attached a few pictures below.  We went to Caleb & Amber's house on Sunday to spend the day also.  Caeden was very excited to hold Emerson again and watch him.  I think to him, it's a real, live, moving "baby doll."  I already love Emerson so much and never expected to love my nephew like this!  Everyday I want to go over and hold him, but the 40 minute drive and gas prices are helping give me self-control. :)  By the way, Amber is doing great emotionally, physically, and absolutely loving being a mommy!  I'm happy to report that she's having a much smoother transition into motherhood than some of us. ;)  Enjoy the pictures!
