announcing my FIRST niece... Jade! after 4 nephews and 2 boys of my own- i was due a girl. as was my sweet Briley who has waited patiently for a baby girl to mother hen. briley will never forget the day b/c she was treated pretty much like the big sis instead of the big cousin. she waited in the hall -right outside aunt dana's door with the grandparents (nonni and poppi). she and nonni danced a jig in the halls when they heard "it's a girl", she was one of the 1st to hold the baby, she "helped" in the measuring, and she came with uncle rich to announce the birth. she was so involved and i was so pumped for her. now she can't wait to stay over at her aunt dana's and help!
i wish i could post a pic of the proud parents but all i have are the baby was nursing pics and pics of us "vultures" that took over trying to get a hold and peek in:) by the way- she looks just like her very proud daddy!
we love you baby jade! dana and rich- y'all did good!
