My New Niece

Welcome to the world! My beautiful niece is finally here...she was born Thursday morning on October 23rd. I got a call early that morning saying it was "time" so I hopped in my car and went to the hospital to pick up Emma. Baby girl was born around 11am.

Jessa Brielle Baker weighed in at 6 lbs 15 ozs and was 20 inches long. She has some of the cutest, most petite facial features! 

But the biggest feet ever! I measured them against Milo's and they were the same size.

I got to see her just a few hours after birth and it was awesome! It's the first time I've been able to hold a baby that new who wasn't mine. 

Emma and Lilly are thrilled to have a new baby sister and they are both so amazing.

Milo was thrilled when I told him his playmate was finally here!

This is Jessa at 2 days old next to a photo of Lilly at 3 days old...they look pretty darn similar! 

She is just too cute...I can't get enough of her!!! I love being an Aunt and so glad we live close enough to see her grow up!

Bubble Guppies Birthday Bash

Well I am finally able to post about Sebastian's birthday celebration! Of course my computer went nuts and I wasn't able to get any of my here are my iPhone photos, not as great as my camera but I'm still waiting for the computer to get fixed. 

I really had fun with the underwater theme of Bubble can do so much with it so simply!

Milo was excited to be a part of the preparations!

Paisley was my expert pinata stuffer!

Our new fishy, Gil, made for an easy decoration.

Can't get enough of this cutie!

Helping with the dishes before the party.

If you are at all familiar with Bubble Guppies then you would know about Fishketball! 

I also lined the entrance with bubble wrap to be popped as our guests walked inside...big hit with the kiddos!

I went simple but efficient with all the decorations and food.

I was really fond of my amazing octopus hanging from the chandelier.

Now as the chaperone and party planner, I took the liberty of testing out the bounce house with the kiddos before the guests showed up. 

And let the celebration begin...

We were thrilled to have Jonathan's mom and dad come up from Florida to visit and celebrate with us!1

My baby guardian for the day!

Aunt Kelly, Uncle Mike and Uncle Sam got Sebastian a bike for his birthday and he loved it!

Uncle Sam, Sebastian and Jonathan enjoyed the bounce house long after the guests left.

Sebastian had a great birthday party with all his best friends and family...thank you everyone who came out to celebrate our little man! I can't believe he is 3 already!
