Well, she's finally here and even though she's a little bit early she still arrived fashionably late. This is my brand new niece, Lexie. She's been pretending to be arriving all week and then changing her mind, and it's been killing us, although the only one who has a license to complain about it is my sweet sister-in-law. She's the one who really had to endure. The rest of us were just impatient.
Isn't she the cutest? And she smells just as good as she looks. Love that new baby smell. She's the first girl in our family since my daughter was born almost 8 years ago. My daughter has been dancing around all day with excitement, just waiting to get to meet her. She's pretty excited to not be the only girl anymore. My son calls her "cute baby Lessie". Our family has been going crazy with pink. And that includes Lexie's 3 big brothers. I've never seen 3 boys so excited about all her pink things. They are so cute about her. I never thought I would hear my 9 year old nephew utter this phrase: "Hey, do you want to see the cutest thing?" Followed by a showing of Lexie's complete hairbow collection (which by the way, really is the cutest thing). I so love that guy.
Here's what I was working on while I was waiting for Miss Lexie to make her appearance.More white dots (I know! I just can't seem to help myself.) from Doodlebug. Patterned paper is Fancy Pants and Making Memories. The heart die-cut, sentiment, and paper frill along the bottom are Fancy Pants. The glitter chipboard flower is Melissa Frances and the ribbon is American Crafts. Off to bed for me. I have stayed up REALLY late the last 3 nights. Time to do a little catching up.
