Wanted: A Flight to Vermont

It’s official… 

I am the aunt to the sweetest baby girl, little Amelia Rose, born yesterday at 1:57pm.  I love all 20.5 inches and 8 pounds of her.  The only bittersweet moment of the whole picture is that I am 1,414 miles away from my only sister, my brother-in-law, and my new favorite person, Amelia.  According to Google, if I start driving at this exact moment, I would arrive in their driveway in 25 hours… of course, I’d prefer to fly.

Needless to say, all I want today is a flight to Vermont… STAT.  Until I see this child, I’ll be stuck in a virtual airport waiting area.


Alas, with a lack of vacation time and a couple hundred spare dollars laying around, I’ll just have to work on my patience.  The amazing thing is that Amelia, at barely a day old, is already a Skype pro so I’ve seen little wiggles and heard the spectacular little coos only such a cute baby can make.  I’ve already assessed that she has my sister’s perfect nose and her daddy’s disposition.  I am in LOVE and she is worth the wait 🙂

Welcome to the world baby girl, Auntie Riah loves you!
