Last night at 8:29pm, I became an aunt to a beautiful baby girl named Brooke Marie. She was 7 pounds, 6 ounces, and 19 1/2 inches long. We visited her in the hospital, where both her and her mom, my sister-in-law, are doing fine.

I am now officially an aunt, and she's my niece. I also have a nephew on the way, due at the end of August.

It was fun to watch my brother, Jake, with his brand new baby daughter. He's not one to show his emotions that often, and it was the cutest thing to see how much he loved his daughter, and how soft and gentle he was with her. I saw him staring at her while he was holding her, and I think it set in for him. It was adorable.
