The Newest Member of our Family

It was last December when we got the exciting husband's brother, Stephen and his wife, Kim were expecting their first baby.  Kim's due date was August 24, 2011.  Oh that seemed an eternity to wait. August 24 came and went as we all waited just a little longer. It would be a surprise to everyone (even the new Daddy and Mommy) as to whether we would be adding a little boy or a little girl to our family.  I am so delighted to share that on August 28 at 9:08 pm we welcomed the newest member of our family into the world. 

She is amazing and I adore her already.

Of course every new little princess needs a pretty new dress to wear so first thing this morning I hurried off to my favorite baby boutique.  Usually I just do a little looking but today I was finally able to do a little buying :)

A girl can't have a new dress without a new bonnet to match......
When we got the word yesterday that Kim was on her way to the hospital, I sat down at the sewing machine and began creating a  doll just in case our new precious little one would happen to be a girl.  I am so glad that I did---I was able to give Emily this special gift from her Aunt Mimi.

My hope is that every time Emily hugs her she will be reminded just how much I love her....

Welcome to the world sweet Emily.You are a precious blessing to our family.
