When a Family Grows

Once upon a time we were a family of five. 

Mom, dad, two sisters, and me.

Then there were three weddings, and five became six became seven became eight.

Mom, dad, two sisters, two brothers, David and me.

Almost two years ago Sister K had a beautiful little girl and eight became nine.

And today.

Today at 2:02 pm my amazing sister gave us a baby boy to love and suddenly, nine became ten.

My family is bigger, and my heart is full.

Mazel tov Sister K and A. I love you guys. 

My flight tomorrow morning can't come fast enough.
