A baby girl joins our family!
Unhappy about 1st bath!
I have a new niece and she's healthy and beautiful! My brother, Cole, and his wife, Madeline, didn't want to find out of the baby was a boy or a girl during the pregnancy. I'm told that as Madeline was pushing and the baby's head came out, she looked down and said, "Well, I guess we got another boy" because the baby's face looks exactly like her big brother, Aiden's, face did as a newborn. Cole watched as the doctor pulled her all the way out and said, "No, it's a girl!" Needless to say, they are tickled pink to have gotten a little girl! We couldn't be happier for them!
The baby was born weighing 8 lbs., 1 1/2 oz and was 21" long. Not too shabby for a girl, eh!
The picture I'm sharing is of her first bath. She was not a happy camper! I suspect she's going to be a feisty one, just like her auntie! :)
So far my nephew, Aiden, is doing great with having a baby sister. I think the presents from Grandma and Grandpa helped smooth the way upon her arrival.
Cole & Madeline have given my niece a beautiful name...I'm reluctant to share it here on this blog but I'll tell you that it starts with an "E". Do you care to guess her name? Leave your guess in my comments section and I'll email you if you guess it correctly. Be creative on your guesses!
