It’s a Baby Boy!

When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born it’s first laugh becomes a fairy. James Matthew Barrie

My baby sister (I have 3 younger sisters) Elizabeth gave birth to her second baby boy three days ago. This [above] is the card I gave her, isn’t it adorable?

This is William (her first when he was about 6 months old) I just found a similar photo with his eyelashes, so cute!
Here’s the newest little angel Markus, just a few hours old [below].
I got to spend the entire day with him and my sister today, it was so great!

This photo was taken a few years ago at Elizabeth’s (on the right) wedding. All 3 of us were in the wedding party. Lea on the left with Anita above me!

Hope you are having a great weekend!
