Congratulations Carolyn!! Enjoy her while she is little. They grow up so fast. My DGS will be 6 next week & it feels like yesterday he was born. I still enjoy every minute with both my Boys but can't wait till the girls are here next month.
Happiness is having time to sew!!

Congratulations!!!!! Oh Carolyn that is wonderful!!! Boy them little girls are out numbering those boys aren't they? You will spoil her I'm sure her being your first I can guarantee it. That first one is something special. Don't give her too much loving save some for Mama and Daddy
