Photo of the Week No. 42: “Itty Bitty Toes”

October 20, 2018

Look at those itty bitty toes! They belong to my newborn nephew, Marquis, and they are the most precious star of this Photo of the Week. Last Saturday, I had the privilege of meeting my baby neph for the first time, and he is the cutest, tiniest bundle of joy. Of course, the little guy was sleeping most of the time, but that didn’t stop me from capturing a few precious moments. There’s something about babies’ tiny feet that make me swoon. So adorable, right?! I look forward to watching these itty bitty toes grow over the years. Congrats to my sister, Ayesha, and brother-in-law, Skylar, on their beautiful baby boy!

Photo of the Week No. 21: “Baby Boy Joy”

May 22, 2018

This Photo of the Week was taken on Mother’s Day, when my sister Ayesha found out she and her husband are having a baby boy! We had a gender reveal party to break the news, which came in the form of blue confetti and Hershey’s Kisses falling from a question mark-shaped piñata. My mom had the ultrasound sealed in an envelope and we opened it together via FaceTime. It was really a struggle to keep it under wraps. At the party, we had family members guess the baby’s gender in advance and the majority of people were expecting it to be a girl, as there are four nieces on my side of the family. However, my brother-in-law Skylar has a mostly male family. I can’t wait to meet my second nephew! We’re already offering name suggestions to my sister, who refuses to listen. The front runners based on input from me and my brother Jamaal are Ashley (hey, it traditionally was a boy’s name) and Da’Johndre. I’ll let you guess who’s responsible for which. Alternate titles for this photo: “Oh, Boy!,” “Blue Bundle of Joy,” “Blue’s Clues” and “Bracing for Baby Boy.”
