I am now officially an aunt!
My sweet little neice entered the world at 10:40 p.m. last night - October 1, 2007.
Her stats: 7 pounds, 8 ounces and 20 inches long.
Mom and baby are doing well. So is dad (my baby brother).
No name or photo as of yet - I was told to have patience when I asked! But never fear, I am heading off to Boston to meet this little one before the end of the week and I am confident I will be filling my camera with photos of my very first niece soon enough, and I am sure she will have a name by then. Or else my sister has decided she should be called Koko (long story full of inside jokes that are only funny to my family on our ridiculous email chains).
Now I just have to make the time to visit FAO Schwartz for my first splurge of indulgence on my little niece who I will warn you all now I will be spoiling.
