Welcome to the World, Baby Brinlee!

We celebrated two birthdays yesterday! I have a new niece, Brinlee, who was born yesterday morning at 9:56AM, weighing 8 lbs 4 oz and measuring 20" long! We got to visit her, and her happy parents last night for family night, and it was such fun. Boo got to hold the baby, and she was much more gentle with her new little cousin than she was with her little brother when he was born, thank goodness.

We didn't stay long. Yaks wanted to climb back and forth over the couch and when he started banging on the glass of the window, we snapped a couple pictures and left. Boo could have stayed forever holding Brinlee, but it was bedtime. I'm so excited she has another little girl cousin. She was outnumbered 3-1!

It's so fun to see people fall in love with their babies when they are born. My brother was a total natural holding that little bundle -- you'd think he'd been practicing at home he was so at-ease. My sister-in-law was tired, but so happy and grateful to finally be a mother. What a great day! I HEART babies.

I yike dis baby, mommy!

Daddy and daughter

Awwww, new babies. Sniff. My Goose feels your pain, Boo! He is outnumbered by his girl cousins right now big time. In fact, last week he was the only boy at his cousin Belle's party. 8 princesses and my poor little Goose.
