Meet this sweet little punkin of a baby girl- our niece, Brooklyn Paige Stanley.
This little love bug has been anticipated and talked about and loved on long before her arrival, and the waiting and hoping and praying and planning all culminate into this little sunshine of a baby girl. She’s perfect. And happy. And sweet and placid, and just everything her parents could ever hope for.
It’s been pretty wonderful seeing my baby sister with a baby of her own. Kara and Matt are proving to be exceptional parents. Brooklyn is so loved by so many, and just may have the most prolific collection of hand knitted gifts of any baby yet. She arrives into this world with a beginning as a very blessed little girl.
Welcome, sweet Brooklyn. We’re so glad you’ve arrived.
Knitted items, top to bottom: ‘Wool Leaves’ blanket by Kara, ‘Spring Breath’ Booties by Aunt Katie, Peach Hearts blanket by Grandma Gerber, ‘Kari Baby Blanket’ by Aunt Betsy, Giraffe Stuffed Toy by Kara, Cashmere Hat by Aunt Colleen, Hooded Baby Cocoon by Grandma Ryan.
