This is my new niece, Abigal Grace and we were able to go & visit her today! She was born March 10th & just got to come home from the hospital on March 31st. She's a beautiful baby & is already so alert. My brother made her smile over & over, and they say little tiny babies don't smile? I beg to differ! And if you look closely, you can see my brother already wrapped very firmly around those little fingers. ;-) He says he can hardly stand to put her down at all. He did go the first 3 weeks of her life hardly getting to see/hold her at all, so I can understand that. Anyway, here are some pics.... :-)
Abigal with her Aunt Amy - who hopes to spoil her rotten!
She never stops moving, even when she's asleep!
Ray caught most of a smile - and tried to get others, but missed!
She certainly knows who daddy is - and will listen to him so intently already. Let's hope she listens in 15-16 years! ;-) Geez, let's hope she listens in 3 years! lol
She has a lot of thicker dark hair on the back of her head and has blue eyes like the rest of our side the family. From the nose down she definetly looks like her mom & big brother though. She's a pretty little girl and still pretty small, though she had hit 6 lbs on Thursday when they brought her home. She goes to the doctor on Tuesday - I'm sure all is going to be okay though. Thanks for letting me share. I LOVE babies, and her being my brother's baby makes her more special!
PS- I'm sure my brother wouldn't be happy at me posting the pics with the "mess" in the background. They had a kitchen fire on Christmas morning & he's still trying to finish everything up since his wife wasn't able to do anything really. I didn't even notice most of it until I saw the pictures - I only had eyes for Abigail today! :-)
