Isn't she darling?
My niece was born at 4:19 a.m. She's 20 inches long and weighs 6 pounds, 6 ounces.
Long fingers like her daddy.
Long toes too. I bet one day, she'll pick up pebbles with her toes and have contests tossing them into the ocean with her daddy. (The dorky things my brother and lil' sis do with each other. I'm too short, with stubby toes, so I get excluded from their beach games.)
Cutest little yawn.
I held her for hours but she didn't want to wake up. No, she doesn't want to face the cold, cruel world! She wanted to stay in her dark little cocoon. She came in nine days ahead of schedule.
Long tongue like her daddy too. I don't wanna play with daddy, she says.
Look how tightly she held onto my brother's finger.
These are just some of the photos I quickly emailed off to my parents, who were eagerly waiting to see pictures of their first grandchild.
I haven't sorted through them all.
How many pictures did I take, my brother asked.
How many? He asked again.
What? That's not too many, is it? :P
Darling niece, I can't wait to snuggle you and kiss you and hold you all over again. And when you get older, we'll bake cookies and have tea parties and play princess, never mind that your daddy wants you to be a tomboy and take karate lessons. Cookies and afternoon tea and frilly dresses are way more fun. :)
