Finally! A girl is born into the family! Welcome to my niece, Libby Claire!
Girls are in short supply on my side…. Libby is the first girl born into the family in 18 years. So her arrival was pretty special. And just coincidentally, my SIL had the same due date as me when I was pregnant last year with Truett (2/13). He was born 5 days before that date. And by chance, Libby decided she was going to share the birthday with her cousin Truett, and arrived 5 days early too! So now these two little people share the birthday of February 8th.
Steven and Nancy brought Libby over for her newborn shoot and while I think everyone was concerned she may not sleep one bit for her session, we were all pleasantly surprised! She snoozed like a little log and we were able to get so many sweet shots of her. She already has a good amount of chub on her, which of course, makes her extra cute! 🙂
I am thinking she looks a lot like her mama, but I see a little of my brother in there, too. Time will tell on whether those eyes stay blue or become brown!
Either way, she is a cutie and I am so excited to watch her little life unfold.So comfy on a blanket made by her great-great-grandmother….I think this is an 11-day old’s way of saying “Aren’t you done yet?”
