Welcome Emma!

We now interupt your regularly scheduled Dogs on Thursday post to bring you this announcement....

I. AM. OLD. As for 7:23 pm last night, I am a Great Aunt! Please join me in welcoming the early arrival of my Great Niece, Emma...

We originially expected Emma around April 20, but apparently Mama was further along than we all knew. She came a little early, at what the docs guess is 33 weeks. Above is the Princess' 2nd photo ever, taken by yours truly (the tube is just extra air to help build up her lungs). You see, it just so happened that my hair appointment had been postponed a couple of times (due to snow - ugh), but apparently that was a good thing because it meant that I was in the area when I got the message last night and able to stop on my way home to see a 2 hour old, 4 pound bundle of cuteness!

Everyone is doing just fine... well, except maybe for this Auntie who hadn't even yet cast on some special knits... gotta get those needles clicking!

As not to be left out on a DOT, here are the happy furbaby cousins...

Zeus... "here's my baby pose for ya!"

Teutul... "did someone say baby? I. AM. THE. BABY."

Lola & Sophie... "Sophie's willing to share her Princess title, but the Queen reserves the right to keep hers..."

Congratulations! She is so sweet and so tiny. When I saw the pict. I fet sad for her having to be hooked up to all that stuff. Hopefully she will do wonderfully and be able to come home early.

With 9 children, I still have every single hand knit blanket or sweater I got, each carefully stored for when my kids have their own, and I know who made each one. I'm sure little Emma will enjoy every thing her wonderful Auntie Nichole makes her! Of course, she can expect plenty of fur-cousin hugs, too!

Jennifer said...

What a great surprise :) And so teeny! What fun it will be to knit up some little baby duds.

The furbabies are too funny. Zeus is such a ham.

Kenyetta said...

Congratulations! So adorable! Furbabies are as adorable as ever!

Emily said...

Hi, baby! Your parents have great taste in names!

LOL, I am sure the furbabies will make room for the new baby and she will be ruling the roost before long. But gosh what a tiny one! God Bless and Congrats!

Congratulation on your new niece. Zeus and Emma are in identical poses. How cute.

Love that upside down Zeus! Why do these dogs insist on flashing their privates? Lucy does that too.

flamonto--a new Latin dance or the word verification word of the night? You decide.
