My favorite new Sunday night activity: Skype calls with my sister, brother-in-law, and newborn nephew. The calls consist mainly of me cooing over the baby, reminding him that I'm his favorite aunt, claiming he is doing things that he's probably not ("Look! he waved at me! I swear!") and occasionally chastising my usually fashionable sister for new mommy sartorial choices:
"Liz, I love your bright blue skinny jeans! Those are super cute...wait, wait, wait...are you wearing....an Outward Bound t-shirt?"
"No, no... I'm just wearing it as a smock."
"Looks like you've got both sleeves in that to me!"
"Baby formula stains, Susie."
I love sending care packages and I have been putting a "new mommy" one together for my big sister. She'll be getting some t-shirt dresses, chic accessories and a couple pairs of Bensimons. You're not going to catch my sister running around in a tracksuit - no way! She's far too glamorous for that. Hope you like everything, Liz!
