She's Finally Here!!!

I'm happy to let you know that Danielle Alexis arrived safely, into this world, on Wednesday,
September 9th, at 12:28 p.m. As much as I had dreaded being awake during delivery, things went very well, and was a breeze when compared with my first delivery.
Needless to say, her big sister was very happy to see her!
And, I have to say, she is the sweetest thing since chocolate! In just 3+ days, we love her to death.
God has indeed blessed us again!

Oh my goodness, she is so beautiful, congratulations on your new baby girl.

You must be so busy with everything so it was so nice that you came to visit my blog today.

All's well here in Australia, I have finally finished a very busy five months of work and I'm finally back to blogging and my own designs. I going to finish my book now, before I get too old to do anything. If I don't do it now I will never do it.

Have a beautiful time with your baby, it's been a while since I held a new baby, but I still remember the wonderful smell and my babies soft skin. But I haven't forgotten the crying and sleepless nights, or should I say years.

Look after yourself,
xxx Coty

Sandy said...

Happy Fall! :)

podso said...

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I've enjoyed a visit to yours and notice we both live in/near the Queen City. Congratulations on your new sweet baby girl. I also am a baby nurse but I think it looks like she was born at L.N. as we don't use those blankets much any more at the "big" uptown hospita where I aml. Hope all is going well!

Dining Delight said...

Congratulations! She is adorable! I couldn't find an email adress for you(might be just me!) but you asked about Garden Web forum in a comment on my blog. Please do join us fellow dish-aholics with our dish-ease! http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/christmas/
Everyone is really friendly there and would welcome you!

Rettabug said...

Happy Belated BIRTHday, Danielle! What a precious gift from God. She's beautiful & so is her big sister, TK.
You ARE twice blessed.

podso said...

Back to you again. Having a baby is a big adjustment--and affects you emotionally too...I can see you not getting back to blogging too quickly. Also I work part time and love to write, so it is sort of easy for me. I work in the nursery, not L and D. At cmc they have separate areas. and I don't really say where I am on my blog. I think there are quite a few NC bloggers.

Shelia said...

Congratulations! Oh, what a precious little darling. Well, two precious little darlings! Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Penny, I hope you and precious baby are doing well! I posted a little earlier when I saw you had her, and I just wanted to drop by again to say we've missed you! Thank you for dropping by to see me. Dudley's actual residence is a townhouse in Washington. It's pretty neat. He sold the MV house, and all of us are sad... but he's on to his next project. Maybe he will send me some more pictures since I'm sure it will be wonderful. I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour. I throughly enjoyed visiting him, and if we hadn't had fall weddings to attend, we would have enjoyed two Thanksgivings there. He actually leased that house for part of each summer, and as you can well imagine, got a ridiculous sum for renting. Even he was stunned! LOL! ;-)

Sending you much love...

XO,

Sheila :-)
