I'm an Aunt Again! Today, my sister Kelly gave birth to her 4Th child. The Baby Girl was born around 11:15 am weighing 7lbs 13 oz. They named her Elise Kelly. I love the name! Here is a picture my Mom posted on Facebook.
The neat thing about this baby, is that no one knew the sex of the baby, except me! A few months ago, Kelly auctioned off the envelope that contained the ultrasound pictures that would tell what the sex was. My bid was one pack of diapers in every size until the child is potty trained. That totals about 5 packs of diapers, or $65.00. My Aunt Shelly, in California, also wanted to get in on the news, so she paid the $65.00 and she knows also. I have been keeping this secret for so long, I'm glad that it is finally out. Along with finding out the sex of the baby, I also go to pick out her going home outfit!
Here are the blankets and hat I crocheted for the new baby. Kelly had told me that if it was a girl, she wanted a purple blanket, so this is the first blanket I made. It is a dark purple color, and is super soft and cuddly.
I decided to make a second blanket this past weekend, that was more pastel colored, but it is really soft too, just not nearly as fuzzy.
I love making little girl hats with the flower. They are so cute, especially on a baby.
I am going to the hospital after work to see the baby, so I will have tons of pictures over the next few days, so check back. It's so exciting to have a new baby in the family. Hopefully it will be my turn next.
