Last week, a lovely little girl joined our family — my niece, G. I love her so much already, I can’t even stand it.
I was lucky enough to meet her less than 12 hours after her birth, after a drive to Brooklyn in rush hour traffic. It was worth every second of gridlock. Nick couldn’t come along on that trip, so we went back to visit on Saturday so he could meet her. We spent a glorious 4.5 hours hanging out with the little one and her elated parents. Since then, it’s not uncommon for us to ask each other, “What do you think G is doing right now?” at least five times a day.
We are in love, and forever changed. We are so grateful to my brother and sister-in-law for bringing this amazing little creature into our lives. We can’t wait to watch her grow up.
