Life has layers... like onions and ogres. I love my newest layer of being an Aunt to my sister's new baby.
Scout Amelia Ellis was born two months early on July 2nd, 2009. Weighing only 3lbs 13oz. Being the mini fighter she is, she showed us all that she was here and ready for life. For some reason, when your family members have children they are more beautiful and perfect. I can't get enough of this sweet little girl and watching my sister be such an amazing Mom. You really get to see who people are when they become parents and with no drugs and an early labor, Laura sure showed us what she is made of. It's amazing how much I love this little one who lives so far away -- I wish for baby Scout all the things I wish for her marinating cousin in my belly. I hope they grow up to be "best cousins".
