Allow me to Explain

I mentioned last week that I was busy working on a new product for my TPT store, but I have to admit that I've been a little sidetracked the last few days.

But I have a good excuse...

I've been busy welcoming my niece, Aniya, into the world. I'm sorry, but TPT and blogging just had to take a back seat to this beauty!

Aniya Samara, born October 9, 2013
6 lbs. 6 oz. and 19 inches long
She belongs to Joel's sister, and Auntie Erin is absolutely smitten. 

We got the call on Wednesday morning that Resha was being induced. Joel and I got to the hospital around 7:30, when she was at 7 cm. I went in to say hi and told Aniya that she could come any time since we were there, and then I settled into the waiting room with the rest of the family for what we thought would be a long night. 

20 minutes later, Jemal called me to say she was ready to push, and 50 minutes later, we had a perfect little girl. 

I seriously can't get enough of her. These pictures of her uncles holding her were a rare occasion so I could play paparazzi. Most of the time we're together, I don't put her down. I love the way she feels, the way she smells, the way her little face moves... oh, how I love babies!

Uncle Aaron... yes, we're going to confuse the poor girl!

Uncle Joel
Obviously, I need to work on getting myself into a photo with her. I tried on my phone, but it never turns out as good on the reverse camera. And the boys were too busy playing video games to help. That's what we call brother bonding, I guess. :)

I promise... this week... there will be a new product!

  1. Nieces and nephews are the best! You can spoil them rotten, send them home with your siblings all wound up, and then take a nap. Congratulations!
