I remember when he was born getting a call from my sister to tell me he was here (I didn't really appreciate it at 3am or something equally ridiculous haha), but I was just SO excited. At this point my sister lived a while away and as I don't drive visiting was an issue. We used to meet up every nearly Tuesday evening and I loved my squishy cuddles. I remember watching him roll and seeing him do his hilarious attempt at crawling and of course I loved hearing those giggles. I've watched him grow from a little baby into a cheeky, mischievous and utterly beautiful little boy and he still amazes me.Now Gemma's come back closer to home I spend SO much more time with them. I feel so proud when I teach him things or he learns from me. Although I don't think Gemma was so pleased that her son was walking around pointing out 'pikey trees' (he has a bit of speech delay so pikey is his way of saying spikey haha!).
Then almost 5 months ago my little pudding of a nephew Oliver made his appearance, and the roll of auntie became even more fun! Of course I loved spending time with them to watch Indiana and Oliver play together, but most of the time I get there and we do a baby swap haha. Oliver is a chunk and I love it haha. He is also the most ticklish baby I've ever met, and I could have hours of joy listening to his snorty giggle!
I think my favourite part of spending time with the boys is when Freddie comes and gives me a kiss and cuddle goodbye. He is so affectionate and I like to think he loves his auntie Em just as much as I love him!
Oh and another great thing, when these two play up and start crying, I can pass them back to Gemma... result haha!
