My absolute favorite thing at the moment

The most exciting thing has happened! My brother, Michael, and his wife, Lauren, have recently had a baby. And, by recently, I mean five days ago. It's a boy. His name is John. I haven't met him yet and I already love him.

John is the first new Schulz since 1985. My parents are now grandparents for the first time. My 92-year-old granny is finally a great-grandmother. I just think it's all so magical and miraculous. We have a baby!

My brother is one proud dad. Here are some of his texts I've gotten from him recently sharing the joys of parenthood. (Don't read if you don't think poop is funny)

  • Just nail my first diaper change. And by nailed I mean barely managed.
  • Sometimes when he's getting his toots out he gets this look on his face like he's smiling, which is pretty awesome.
  • John just had his first real poop!
  • Oh man, we just had our first blowout

His mom and dad want to keep some things private for now so they don't want any pics online, so here is a picture of John that drew myself




I will meet him in three weeks and I'm so excited! I'm sure he will appear on my blog towards the end of the month.

See you tomorrow!
