Evie Needs Siblings

By Nicole Hill Gerulat |

Evie & Her CousinsOh, but not by me! Not yet, anyway.

Today, we had my mom’s cousin’s kids over to play. (So what is the relation to Evie? Not quite sure. We call them cousins.) They were so sweet with her and Evie basked in the attention.

It made me a little sad for her. She’s the first grandbaby on both sides so she has no cousins to play with her. She also doesn’t have any siblings yet and as oldest, will never be roughed around.

What she does have is 4 Aunts, 4 Uncles, 3 sets of Grandparents and some Great-Grandparents who all adore her and give her more than enough attention.

    Hi Nicole, I just love your blog. Your daughter is adorable (and so are her cousins). I am also a genealogy/family relationships buff. So you know, those adorable kiddos are your second cousins and they are Evie’s 2nd cousins, once removed. Evie and their kids will be 3rd cousins. Does that make any sense? lol

    But she will be the oldest sibling, a great example to the young ones, and also a great older cousin! :)

    I am the oldest of a cobbled-together immediate family and the third oldest in a large group of cousins. I admit I had to laugh when you said she would never be “roughed around.” Trust me, even several years’ difference in age is not enough to keep a younger sibling from attacking you for wrestling matches. In fact I think it makes it easier for them – they aren’t aware how they could hurt you. My sister was a fan of the windmill kicks herself. I was the quiet bookish one; *they* were the terrors. :)

    If they are your mother’s cousin’s kids, they would be her second cousins once removed!
