Guest Blog: Welcoming My Beautiful Niece

Barbara has had a very busy couple of days, so she asked me to write a blog entry in her place.

Please welcome my beautiful niece to the world. She arrived just before 8 p.m. on Sunday, October 10, 2010. 10-10-10 is her birthday, isn't that cool?

Her name is Jocelyn Jane (Jane is for her maternal grandma) but we are calling her JJ.

She is truly gorgeous. Her grandmas claim that she looks like her daddy. I think she looks like herself.

Sitting in the hospital room holding her in my arms, I reflected back almost 25 years ago when I sat in another hospital room holding my baby sister for the very first time. Today I held my baby sister's daughter. How wonderful is that?
I am now an aunt five times over. This beautiful little girl is my very first niece (the second will be here in February). I love being the aunt of four active, funny and loving boys, but I can't wait to spoil this little girl with all things pink! 

I captured a few other photos tonight.



  1. Congrats on the new baby girl. I am sure she won't be spoiled:)

  2. Congrats! She is simply precious and obviously already very loved :)

  3. Congratulations on the arrival of JJ! You look fabulous for just having a baby!!! Get plenty of'll need it :)

  4. What a precious little face! And those eyes are already taking in her new world! Welcome to the world and to the farm Miss JJ! Congrats to everyone! Let the baby coddling begin!

  5. Yeah, yeah, yeah! She's gorgeous! :)

  6. wow a little girl will definitely give those boys (cousins) a run for their money. big congrats Frugalista, now you are an official Mommy blogger!!!

  7. What a beautiful baby! Congrats!!!

    And I love the fact that Gal in the Middle remembers holding her sister in the hospital and is now holding that sister's baby in the hospital. I remember holding my sisters in the hospital, but didn't get to be there to hold their babes in the hospital.

  8. hey gorgeous mama! you and jj look terrific in the photos! (kevkev looks alright too) congrats! and i can't wait to meet her!
