on motherhood, nov.10

early last sunday morning my beautiful, brave sister gave birth to baby gia and i became an aunt! by way of photo messages and daily phone calls (during the first one, she gave me a baby sneeze!) i have fallen so hard in love with this little sweetpea and am literally counting down the seconds (approx 518,400) until i can hold her in my arms and just stare at her.

i can't stop thinking about the fact that there is a new member of our family, someone i will watch grow and change and become who she will be...someone who will come visit her aunt in NY all by herself one day...and i imagine all the things i will want to show her and teach her and learn about her. i came upon this great piece on parenting, and felt really moved by the simple idea of walking the walk and teaching by example.

ps: i totally got teary-eyed while writing this!
