Baby Boy Baker: Coming Soon...

...but not from me.

As some of you know there will be a baby Baker boy arriving in the near future. At the latest on Monday. This is going to be great!

My two little nieces will have a baby brother to fight with. Baby brothers are loads of fun. I recommend them to anyone that is in the acquiring sibling market.

They are also a pain. Will and I had more fun than fights, but there were fights. The things with boys is, you can fight them and they don’t go tattling on you. They just fight you back! Wonderful. There is no fake tears or whining to get you into trouble. You just get attacked right back. That’s really the way I prefer it.

And now, a story.

It was our first trip to the circus. I don’t know how old I was. I’m guessing around 6 or 7 so Will was around 3 or 4. We were having a blast. Amazed at everything. Then it happened. Something I will never forget. A man drove a motorcycle on a tightrope and Will said, “That’s what I’m going to do when I grow up.” I was so scared. No way. He would die! I couldn’t let my brother do such a thing! And my parents weren’t telling him “No. That’s too dangerous.” Do you know what they told him? They told him, “You can be whatever you want to when you grow up.” HOW DARE THEY! I was balling. I could not let this one go. “Please just tell him that he can’t do that! He will die! Why are you telling him he can do that?” This lasted for days. Me whining to my parents about it. Then my Mom said to me, “He probably won’t really do that.” I still wanted her to tell him he couldn’t though. They wouldn’t do that. Good for them. I see that now.

Anyways, I hope Will’s baby boy is giant like he was. Look at him! My goodness. And I don’t know what’s up with my crazy face. Giving myself an under-bite. That is not a good look for me.

I love this! Oh Kasey, such a literal little girl. My brother is the different kind of brother, the tattle-tale. Who whenever I punched, or manipulated, told on me.

Oh William... such fantasies of riding a motorcycle on a tightrope. I can't imagine that it would be that fun.. you can't go very fast, and who wants to fall off the rope and crash? Not me.

Look at how cute you two were. The underbite thing is adorable.. you were probably just hamming it up so you could make fun of yourself 25 years later. That sounds like something you'd do. ;)

I was VERY literal. It caused me all sorts of problems.
How dare Matteline! And that is why he will forever be called, Stain.

I didn't want to do it! And I'd be damned if my brother was going to do it!

That is probably what I was going for in the pic. It's strange because my overbite is actually so bad that I can fit my tongue through it. Maybe I was trying to self correct that.

Omigosh, KC, in pics as a little kid Becky Jo always looks like an angel but you always look devilish! But you better believe I would want you at my back in a barroom brawl, you know how to KICK AZZ. And WOW! A new Baker boy!

Oh congrats to your family. Babies boys are the best...they are TOO adorable. I'm biased as I had one! :)

Reverend Awesome said...

Thank you! We are all pretty excited about him.

Gary, I totally have your back. I hope this barroom brawl is only a shouting match. I don't know how much ass I can physically kick.
