things i love thursday…and a bit more.

you may have noticed that today is friday, and not thursday. very good. and the reason i missed the post yesterday is a good one, in case you were wondering: i was lucky enough to be attending the birth of my new niece, mara elizabeth, who was born yesterday afternoon just before 2.

hello, miss mara. you’re beautiful. and i love you.

my sister-in-law was a crazy wonder woman, as i kept reminding her during the birth, and to be able to experience a birth from a new perspective after having had two children myself was amazing, fascinating, and insane. and i’m incredibly grateful that i was allowed to be a part of it.

so while the new mom and dad are, i’m sure, adjusting to life with this little one (19 1/2″ long, 8 lbs 5 oz….little is relative), and getting used to the idea that they are indeed a mom and dad, i’m still processing the fact that i was there when my new niece took her first breath in this world.

and as mind blowing as that is, i love that too. very, very much.
