The Day My Heart Exploded

This little girl was born last Wednesday. She made me an aunt.


Have you ever seen anything cuter in your entire life? I didn't think so.

I didn't know I could love something so much--sure, sure...I know first time parents say that about their children, but this is different. I can love this little one unconditionally and be the cool, fun aunt who lets her have ice cream for dinner and stay up as late as she wants. And then I get to give her back to her mama and daddy. It's the perfect situation.

My sister was a rockstar--blew through labor like no one's business (I had no doubt she was going to be fabulous!) Seeing my sister hold her daughter was the sweetest sight I've ever seen. I'm so proud of her and can't wait to see the awesome parents that she and her husband are going to become!

Oh, sweet girl...you are so loved.

I'm on my way to see them shortly and I can't wait. Being an aunt is the best.
