meeting violet

since we live pretty far away from our family...we usually have to wait to meet new babies.  which is so hard for this aunt!  I like to be outside the delivery room waiting to hear the first cry...and hold them with freshly applied gooky eye ointment still glistening.
our beautiful niece, violet, was born on valentine's day this year.  and the girls and I just got to meet her today!  she is stunning.  she was carried into mimi and papa's kitchen during lunch time today...and eden and charlotte immediately forgot about anything they were supposed to be eating.  I scooped her into my arms (which were made for baby holding) and we kissed on her for hours.   it was love at first sight for everyone.

after I fed violet a bottle of her mama's milk and she was full and happy I told her parents to take a snooze.  aunt abby was in charge.  they drifted off for a short nap and I did what all good aunts do.  stripped her down and started a photo shoot!

she is so delicious.
we are delighted to be spending time with this sweet baby and our family.  we hope she gets used to her cousins constantly hovering around.
