My niece, Desiree, just had a baby, so of course I just had to show off my brand new great-niece, Brooklyn Rachelle Reid. Only problem for me is she is all the way over in New Zealand! I used to change Brooklyn's Mum's diapers and now she has a baby of her own? Crazy! Makes me feel a little old. I am a great-aunt many times over now. Sigh.
Don't you love all the hand-made clothes on her? They look suspiciously like my Mum's handiwork....almost makes me want another baby, just for the baby clothes alone.
Now you see this picture below? That is my brother, Peter, holding his new (and first) grandbaby in the hospital. Now see that photo on the wall behind him? That is a photo the hospital took of Peter holding his youngest daughter, about 12 years ago, and which they still have on the wall in the maternity wing. Isn't that crazy? Crazy in a fantastic way!
Do you think I'm a little bit homesick??
Oh and by the way, this is Desiree when she was about 34 weeks pregnant...
And this was just a week ago...The baby was 9lb, 4oz. Need I say more?!!
