Yes, our littlest chickadee is a girl... and she's just gorgeous!

As grandparents, you'll excuse us for thinking that all our chickadees are all just gorgeous!  I'm not making any excuses for being over the moon at the safe arrival of our littlest girl.  I find sitting on the side-lines watching the entire process absolutely nerve-wracking! 

I spent yesterday morning cleaning the house, all the while having ernest conversations with my angels... couldn't settle to anything as I watched the clock tick by so I had to 'move'!!!.

Whoever said you have to sit in a quiet place with your legs crossed to 'meditate' didn't know what they were talking about... you can meditate as you move, as you clean, as you shower.  Meditation is a 'state' of mind.  Thankfully, I find 'zoning out' very easy to do.  It helped to pass the time while we waited for the phone to ring. 

Our littlest girl looks just like she did in the scan picture I posted previously.  This photo was taken yesterday afternoon when she was just a few hours old. 


Needless to say, we have all fallen in love with her!   Haven't seen her 'awake' as yet... haven't had a cuddle yet... will be doing heaps of that!

Thanks Bev! I am dying to make her a quilt, but unfortunately I am working overseas at the moment without my sewing machine and stash... I will see what I can do in March when we go home for a holiday.

I do believe her proud grandmother has made some beautiful cot linen from some Irish linen she had in her stash though!

And her wonderful aunt (MamaTui) in NZ has made her a stunning alphabet quilt!!!

Preggie Chick (we'll have to find her a new name now, won't we?) and husband are absolutely over the moon with delight. They couldn't get over the amount of love and work that had gone into the quilt.
