There's Always a Silver Lining

Okay, so we woke up to snow yesterday, and I thought surely it would be all downhill from there, but just after lunchtime I got the call...
my sister Kim had her baby, and its a Girl cousin for Katie!
Here she is in all her newborn sweetness:

Everlyn Holly Rose meets her big brother Donny (supervised by Daddy!):

She's a teensy thing, just 5 pounds 9 ounces, a few ounces bigger than Jack was when we brought him home. I am going to have to dig through Katie's baby clothes to see if she has any preemie sized frocks to loan her cousin!

We'll be making the 1 hour drive up to Vancouver on Friday so that the cousins can get acquainted, and so Auntie Beth can hold a newborn baby that she doesn't have to wake up in the night to feed. :)

From Godey's Ladys Book, circa 1860's, here's a little something in celebration of little girls:

What a tiny little blessing, congratulations to your whole family. I'm a great granny for the first time. She is 4 months old and the absolute joy of our lives as I'm sure this little sweetheart will be.
I had to stop by Etsy and get your packet of prim spring samplers, they are so prim awesome. :)
