I went and got myself a baby.
I got the call on Friday after work.
So I flew out at 7AM on Saturday morning.
Look at her.
She’s perfect in every single way.
Well, OK, she’s not mine per se.
Well, she kind of is, but it’s not like I spent 10 months perfecting her.
My sister-in-law did.
And I’d say she did a damn good job.
Of course, my brother helped. A little.
But I did go get me a baby this weekend.
A precious new baby niece.
And I couldn’t be a prouder aunt.
Or prouder of my bother and sister-in-law.
She’s the most innocent and loved person.
And she melts me.
And I love her to the moon and back.
I can’t wait to read books to her.
To change more diapers.
To take her on walks.
And to the zoo.
And on girl dates.
And host sleepovers with her.
And to teach her about manners.
And about giving back.
And why dogs are your best friends.
And about how wonderful her parents are.
I love you Lil Miss Natalie
I love you to the moon and back a thousand times over.
