I'm an Uncle!

What an exciting weekend!

My brother Scott and his "soon to be" wife Michale (pronounced Michelle) are the proud new parents of my little nephew, Mason Phillip Shewfelt.

Everyone is super excited about the new addition to our family.

I can remember when they told me they were pregnant. It was when I was broken and living at my parents place. Scott, Michale and her son Caleb (well, their son, but know what I mean) were living there as well waiting to move into their new home. It was a little bit of a surprise, but a good surprise.

I have never seen my bro glow like the way he did today. It makes me want to cry just thinking about it because he has always been the tough guy. The one who doesn't show emotion. But today, something was different. He softened up instantly. You could see that he had experienced love in a way that he never had before. I asked him if he felt and instant connection with his new son and he said that as soon as Mason looked at him he was forever changed. How awesome is that?!

Congratulations Guys!!!!! I promise to be the coolest uncle ever!
