Weekend Update: Introducing Sophia and A Butler Win!

This past weekend was pretty exciting to say the least. On Friday my sister and her husband had their first child! Sophia Kumiko was born at 441 PM, and she is the most precious girl I have ever seen. Everyone in our family is so excited, and now I can say that I have 2 nieces and 2 nephews!

After seeing Sophia at the hospital on Friday night I rushed to campus to see my sorority sisters! It was one of our sisters 22nd birthday. We had a ton of fun and even sang to Living on a Prayer, so I guess it doesn’t get much better than that. I also learned that iPhone’s can last in the snow for over 4 hours… no worries everyone it wasn’t my phone just my best friend’s phone :) On top of all that I FINALLY GOT TO SEE MY BIG SIS. She was gone in Spain last semester so seeing her was awesome.

I was pretty much excited for everyday of this weekend, but all for different reasons. Saturday I was excited because it was the first basketball game I have been to in a very long time! With winter break and recruitment I missed a good 2-3 games, which is a lot for me. We really needed a win in the Big East on Saturday, and we got it in overtime. On top of that I gave Trip, our mascot, his bone at the beginning of the game. I’m so proud that he doesn’t drop his bone anymore!

Butler vs Marquette; win in overtime!

All in all it was a pretty good weekend. I miss not living on campus anymore, but being able to go back on the weekends isn’t too shabby. Expect a post about me complaining about this. Until then have a great Monday!

 

Today’s the Day!

At 335 this morning by brother texted me they were on the way to the hospital which means only one thing, MY NEPHEW IS COMING! His due date was 3 days ago so I feel like it’s about time!

My brother and his wife have two other kids, so I’ve been an aunt for a while. I have a nephew and a niece, Sam and Olivia, but I’m excited for the newest edition. If they didn’t change his name last minute I’m pretty sure his name is going to be Stanley Kenji Cessna. All of the kids have Japanese middle names and typically their first name is a family name. This may sound really bad, but I’m hoping that Stanley looks more Asian than Sam or Olivia. My niece and nephew look completely white. They have really light colored hair and blue eyes.

I was the third child and ended up looking the most Asian out of my siblings so maybe that will happen to Stanley! Either way I am still excited whether he looks Asian or not. It’s always fun to have a new baby around. Sam and Olivia are quite the handful, but I’m sure they will help with Stanley a lot!

I don't know if you can tell here, but I look the most Asian between my siblings!

Adventures With A Four Year Old

This past Saturday I got to do something really awesome with my nephew! My nephew, Sam, is four and attends preschool at the Children’s Museum. On Saturday they allowed families to tour their collections, which are not out on the floor because there is not enough room for them.

Random fact, but if you didn’t know the Indianapolis Children Museum has the largest collection in the nation. A lot of their collection has many different things, and depending on what they plan on showing in the museum they put different things out at different times.

Some items that are placed in the collection are very old items that people remember from childhood, while other items are items that are more movie related items. Although the preschoolers were excited I think the grownups were more excited than the kids.

My nephew on the other hand just wanted to take five billion pictures, but most of his pictures were blurry so I had to take over. Even though you may not be able to see the collections, what the children museum has out currently is awesome. Especially with all the people here for the Super Bowl I hope that people really take the time to see the city of Indianapolis. We may be known for our sports, but we have pretty awesome museums that are not even that expensive!
