Four days ago, this beautiful bundle arrived.
It is truly indescribable how my heart has felt since then. The second I arrived in Des Moines and walked through the hospital doors, she stole it; that button nose, those plushy lips, her soft cooing noises, long fingers, and feathery hair. I couldn’t stop looking at her and, from this moment on, I’ll never stop loving her. Welcome to the world, Ellie Pauline Stiles! Your sweet little soul just made it infinitely better. How lucky am I to be your aunt?
