Baby Brooke

Baby Brooke

6 pounds 12 ounces

of baby sweetness

brooke for grammy 1 Born at 2:30 PM

on her Grammy’s Birthday. Born to my sister Betsy.

To Betsy who has always been frightened of baby girls.

She looks smitten to me : ).<KENOX S630  / Samsung S630>

I wasn’t going to blog tonight

(about this stellar baby)

but my parents

could not open the email

my brother in law sent them with these pictures.

After spending 45 minutes

trying to explain how to open an attachment

to EACH of them

over the phone,

I decided I better put the pictures on the blog

since they were desperate to view them.<KENOX S630  / Samsung S630>

They do know how to read my blog.

(Only because I made it the home page

of their computer.)

Kaish and I will go to see her tomorrow.

We are so excited we can’t even stand it.

I printed these pictures

for Kaish to take to his class tomorrow

and he was horrified

by the naked one.

You just gotta love 4th grade boys, right?

‘Every child begins the world again....’

~Henry David Thoreau

When is the last time you held

a new baby?

I can’t wait to get my fix!

My neighbour had her second child a few weeks back. I wander over for my baby fix every so often. Mom gets a break. I get to baby-snuggle. Win/win. :)

Melissa said...

Oh my goodness! How absolutely precious! I'm glad your parents couldn't figure out how to open their attachments too. Seeing pictures of mommies with their brand new babies can put a smile on anyone's face. My mom reads my blog too, but she hasn't figured out how to leave comments yet...

I imagine lots of tutus, pinks and everything girlie coming up in many of your pictures. How exciting! I didn't realize your sister was due already. Enjoy that sweet little baby.

Absolutely beautiful! She will LOVE having a girl... !

Lisa said...

Okay! How did I miss this???

I am so glad I try to catch up on the blogs I like and look at all the posts I have missed.

I have to stop home-schooling my kids and put them in school. "IT" is really getting in the way of my blogging life!

She was born on my father's birthday too... I am so happy for your sister and her family! Her baby girl is just GORGEOUS!

Congratulations to you all!!!!!!!

Those pictures of Kaishon with baby Brooke are just great!

Liz said...

She's absolutely beautiful!

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
