Nothing is sweeter than a fresh, new baby. Nothing. Of course, if that baby is itty bitty (like 5 pounds) AND related to you, well then it is heaven in a blanket!!! And that description suits sweet miss Maggie Claire. Born on the Tuesday before Christmas, late in the evening, miss Maggie and her parents, Ross & Laura, spent their first Christmas as their very first day at home as a family. Not a bad was to spend Christmas, if you ask me!!! I had the absolute pleasure of spending a little time with Maggie yesterday before we headed home from our Halbert family Christmas. She was lovely, tiny and I would have been happy to pack her in my suitcase if I’d been given the chance. Sure wish I lived closer…sounds like Mom would have been happy to have me hang out with her darling little one so she could get a little rest!
We kept these simple. A few images that show how beautiful this new family member is. I know that the next time I see her she’ll have grown a mile!!
Maggie wasn’t very interested in being a supermodel. She was more interested in getting back to Mommy. But all was good when she got in Daddy’s arms. She settled right in and tolerated a few more images.
I think she’s already perfected the art of having Daddy wrapped around her finger just by wrapping around his.
Thanks, Laura & Ross, for allowing Tyler and I a little time with Maggie yesterday. She is gorgeous and I have a hard time believing that she’ll probably be toddling around at Thanksgiving next year!!
