My first niece was born on July 14, which meant a whirlwind trip for me from Michigan to Kentucky this past weekend. My sister looks tired but is constantly and consistently amazing me. My parents were in Kentucky, too, so mom and I stocked the freezer with lasagna and enchiladas while dad and the baby took naps together. I did get to hold her, too, with the proof right here.
She evens things out, since my husband and I already have our first nephew on his side of the family.
