Aunt Annie!

A little over a week ago I became an Aunt! Sarah and Mike had a beautiful baby boy August Donovan Kuhnell, 6 pounds 13 ounces, 19 and ¾ inches. He is the cutest little baby ever – and I am not at all biased.

While I am beyond excited to be an Aunt, it is also making me a little homesick. I love getting the updates from family (and the pictures), but it reminds me what I am missing and what I gave up to have this amazing experience living abroad. Don’t get me wrong, if I didn’t get updates and pictures regularly it would be so much worse. I knew moving abroad would come with both positive and negative aspects. I am lucky that so far the positive has greatly out weighed the negative. Having a new nephew I have not seen in person is the one negative that no amount of positive can make up for. I know Augie will never know that I was not there for the first few months of his life, but I know I am missing some really amazing family moments.

The good news is Christmas is really close and I will meet him then!!! Until then PICTURES!


  1. I agree...I am not biased at all...he is the cutest little boy ever...I don't say baby because I was the cutest baby ever:)
