October twenty-second. I wanted to spell out today’s date, because well, it is a very important one. Today is the day this furry little bunny friend whose been staying with me for the past few weeks will find her new home in Newport. Today is the day my family grows by one whole person, teeny as she may be. Today, my sister becomes a mother, my parents become grand, and I assume the role of “Auntie”, a part I’ve had my eye on since the day Kara and Blake said I do. So as you can imagine, today feels very monumental, even as I sit here and calmly eat my Fage yogurt, sip my English breakfast tea and chat with my roommate, preparing for the eminent trip over the bridge to Aquidneck Island. On the inside, I’m picturing itty bitty knit onesies, bright colored rattles and saying a silent prayer that October twenty-second, two thousand and twelve may be a beautiful, peaceful fall day for little A to greet the world.
