Or No. 2 as Daughter Sarah called her
Or "The Expected One"
as I called her
She made her debut last Thursday
at almost 7 p.m.
While we were on I35 between Kansas City and Des Moines
But we got in early the next morning
We got to hold her
She is precious!
Piper Elizabeth is her name
"Piper" because Daughter Sarah and her Andy like it
Elizabeth which is also her Mom's middle name
I was petitioning for
"Martha Linda" after the grands
(and calling her Emyl)
after her great great grandmother and also the town where her mom was born
after my grandmother and since they already have a Lucy . . .
Piper it is!
Older Sister Lucy likes her new little sister
A "baby" as she calls her. And very quietly, "Piper"
Our presents for Piper?
A granny square stocking
(because there are only three
those three dating 40 years ago when I bought them for us and daughter Sarah)
I made Piper's -- and I'm not a crocheter!
It was truly a gift from the heart.
And although a tad different (it may be bigger -- but that's okay, Piper as second deserves more loot)
And since I gave all of the "good stuff" (read family items)
I'm making a little needlepoint door hanger for Piper
when the door's shut and this hangs from the knob,
Lucy knows that Piper is sleeping!
We stayed a week
My daughter is awesome --
a new mom with a just turned two year old
And the house filled with in-laws
for a week
For both sets of parents came
Because of the new little one
The in-laws are now all back home
But oh, how I miss Piper . . . and Lucy!
