Today, I'm an Aunt

Today, in the early hours of New Year’s Eve, my sister gave birth to her very first baby — making me a very-first-time aunt.

And if this little boy is any indication of how 2013 will go, then we’re sure to have the happiest, cuddliest, joy-filled year yet.

Benjamin Alexander was born at 2:12 a.m., and he’s just about the sweetest baby ever — since I had my own, of course, swaddled in the same blue-and-pink striped blanket and miniature doll hat.

I hope everyone’s New Year is filled with as many kisses and coos as ours.

Happy 2013. xo
