Love at first sight
It was like it is in the movies. I was in love after just one look. I was bowled over by the emotion and love I had after seeing this person for the very first time in my life. I'm talking about my wonderful niece Lauren. At right is a picture my sister took when I saw my niece for the first time ever. Lauren was born while I was overseas, so besides a few 'conversations' I had with her on the phone and the pictures my sister sent of her, I didn't know her at all.
Now it's been a almost 3 weeks since I have been home and I am still totally enthralled with everything Lauren does (except her dirtying her pampers-I still can't stomach that). I am so lucky to have a smart and beautiful niece that loves her Aunt 'Ollie' so much and I look forward to making up the 2 years I have missed with her.
