Mesdames et messieurs, j’ai l’honneur de vous présenter ma petite nièce, qui s’appelle Chloe Grace.

Here she is on her birthday, just a few minutes after her grand entrance.


The Baby Surprise Jackets I knit for her arrived the day after she was born. Good thing too, since the small one was so tiny she could only wear it for about two weeks. Note to self: Knit BSJs out of sport-weight or heavier yarn!

My brother sent an e-mail a few weeks ago with Grandma’s Magic Blanket as the subject. Here she is conked out under the quilt my mom made for her.


If you look closely you can see that she was working on her pacifier so hard before she fell asleep that it left marks around her mouth. Now there’s a little girl who knows what she wants!


I find baby toes impossible to resist, I don’t know why.

Here she is modeling the bigger jacket. Plenty of room to grow into this one!



I’ve convinced myself that she’s smiling so big because she likes her jacket ever-so-much.


I’m pretty sure she’s got my brother Jason wrapped around her little finger. What do you think?

Those toes need to be bitten!!!! cute :)

Karen said...

So sweet!! Makes me (almost) sorry there will be no babies in my least, not until my kids start having 'em. And the BSJ is unbelievably cute. No wonder she's grinning!
