Noah's cousins

Noah is one lucky boy. By the end of the year, he will have not one, not two, not four, but EIGHT cousins/second cousins his age (Scarlett, Paisley, Brooklyn, Penelope, Regi, Baby Nord- coming in August, Baby Freeman-coming in October, and Baby Stewart- coming in September). 

I wish so badly we would have gotten pictures of baby Penelope (Mark's oldest brother's 3rd daughter) who was born a month ago. She's a doll! We'll get some good ones with her this weekend. Sarah is a birthing champ and delivered her pretty much naturally (the epidural didn't work above her legs) and Penelope was over 8 pounds! She's a good pusher and got her out pretty quickly. Sarah was so sweet and pleasant when we came and saw her new babe. I couldn't believe it--I was a total train wreck after Noah arrived.

 For now, I have pictures of Noah with Scarlett (my cousin's baby) at Estefi's baby shower in March on St. Patrick's Day. He was quite into her, if you can't tell:
 Like he's saying, "hey! You're pretty!" She pretty much ignored him.
 Nice sweater!

My brother's wife Estefi (the one who orchestrated my BOMB baby shower) had her baby Reginato (Regi) Miguel Clark on April 3rd at about 1:15 p.m. at Orem Community. It brought back so many memories. He was 7 lbs. 6 oz. and absolutely perfect. This girl is gifted in the birthing department along with Sarah. With both Regi and Nico she pushed like 3 times and they were out. I couldn't believe how "with it" she was after giving birth. I nearly passed out and threw up a bunch after Noah came. Sheesh!
When I held him I couldn't believe how light he was, but only because Noah was 2 pounds heavier. He's just too precious and there's NOTHING like holding a newborn to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
Noah with my Aunt Cindy (my mom's youngest sis.). She surprised us with news that she's pregnant at lunch one day. We all met up for Thai food and she busted out an ultrasound. It looks like it'll be a boy, but she's not 100% sure. She'll be 40 when he comes, but she's a BABE and looks maybe 30. Her girls are 7 and 10 so they'll be awesome babysitters. I'm so so excited for her. Noah loved snuggling up to her at the hospital.


  1. "Birthing champ"...I wish! :) Noah is just too cute. It has been way to long since we have seen him. I can't wait to see that cute boy on Friday! We will definitely get some pictures of him and Penelope then!

  2. Isn't that exciting about Cindy? I'm so happy for them.
    If you add Brooklyn to the mix the number of "cousins" for Noah gets even bigger!

    1. Lindsay!! I'm not lying when I say that I KNEW I was missing someone and it dawned on me YESTERDAY and as soon as I got up this morning I changed it, and that was BEFORE I saw this comment of yours! I feel so badly that precious Brooklyn slipped my sleep-deprived brain. We're so excited to see you guys in just a few days!
