Try this on for size: Aunt Gail.
Yep! I am officially now an aunt. My husband's youngest sister gave birth to my niece, Chloe, on January 25 (the 26th for me).
I am excited to spoil the little booger completely rotten. Before long, I hope to see pictures of her with the bib we sent with Hello Kitty and the words "Do you like my ribbon? It's a gift from my mother. Itty bitty kind and pretty!"
Classic Japan in its syrupy cuteness.
This is one of those times when I really wish I was home. I hate missing an event like this.
The good news: come March, Joe and I will be home to visit, Japanese baby toys in hand. The quest for a Hello Kitty pacifier now begins!
