A Proud Aunt

My eldest niece, Julia is visiting the ranch for a week. The 5 year old Diva has kept me busy with fashion shows, swimming, craft projects, and a tour of Natural Bridge Caverns.

But her favorite topic these days is babies. She LOVES playing with her cousin, Harper. And she is quite eager to meet Baby Lietz... which is most certainly a girl, according to Julia.

I've rented a doppler to hear the baby's heartbeat whenever I feel like it. And Julia is fascinated. Now that she has proof of a baby being in there... (she, too, wonders why I'm not "fat") she goes on and on about it. In fact, she talks to my baby... (in her most serious voice; mouth near my belly button)

"Baby, this is your cousin, Julia. I love you already. We are going to have so much fun. You are going to love living on a ranch. "

And when we were down in the caves...

"Baby, we are underground in a cave and it is really dark. Are you scared? I'm a little scared. But it's okay because I'm bigger and I can always protect you from scary stuff."

Is that not the cutest thing ever? Now if I can only convince her that she really has to wait until after Christmas to meet this baby...
