Tickled Pink & Smitten

5 Aug

This morning at 10:47am, my niece arrived. She came early, which is not like our side of the family at all. We’re hoping that she continues this trend throughout her life.

She came via c-section, and it’s a good thing, too. Our little bundle weighed in at a little over 9 pounds and is 22 inches long.

The new grandparents, other aunt and I watched her the entire time she was in the nursery, marveling over how she moved her arms and sucked her hand, chuckling at her angry protest against her first bath, and proudly pointing her out to fellow onlookers who asked, “Which one is yours?”

Seeing my brother walk out with her in his arms ranks up there in my favorite moments ever lived. I will remember it always.

So, here she is, y’all – hands out of her “burrito wrap” because she cries when they’re confined:

Happy Birthday!

    Congratulations on Aunt-hood. Are you going to be the cool Aunt that spoils her niece with trips to Bloomingdale's? The site looks great!

    Thanks, BP! The plan is to spoil her as much as possible, and then hand her back over to her parents.Cecilia-Am. Not. I just like this one baby.
