Two days ago my sister had her fourth child. A little girl, born a few weeks shy of her due date, and yet perfect in every way.
You would think that none of us would get excited about a fourth baby — the third girl — and yet, we spent the day anxiously waiting for news and when the phone finally did ring we all jumped for joy. As for my sister, I could hear the love pouring through the phone as she told me about my tiny new baby niece.
It’s true what they say, your heart just expands to let in new family members.
Tomorrow my sister gets to bring home her new baby and we all get to start dotting on her. I can’t imagine something I’d rather be doing this Fall.
