We are taking this trip to visit Mr. E's family - it is really important to me that Eli meets all his aunts and uncles and great aunts and uncles and great grandparents and a whole slew of friends of various stripes all of whom have been so supportive of us and have been incredibly generous and who we just couldn't do without. I figure it's the least I can do - let all these people who love us and support us meet this kid they've been so excited about since day one.
However this is also the obnoxiously good looking family and all of Mr. E's siblings, in addition to being smart and skinny and having good hair, have big blue blue eyes. And I hope this doesn't happen but really. If one more person gazes down at Eli and says "Look at those big blue eyes" and then glances sneakily at me and says hopefully "I wonder if they'll stay that way" I might have to lose my shit.
I HAVE BIG BROWN EYES AND I THINK THEY'RE NICE.
