Labor Day?! ….. Wasn’t that Friday?! …..And the new baby is a……….

Hey everyone, sorry I was away. I’m a tad sorry, but not really…  I was waaay busy living (and ♥loving♥) life! Today is labor day, but for me; Friday was a literal “Labor Day” because my beautiful sister went into labor. It was a planned sea-section because the little nephew had to be an emergency sea-section so this little one was a planned delivery. My sister went into labor the same time her scheduled delivery was planned. They new little one was ready to come…. 

I am an aunt to a new…


Aunt Julie & Annika

This baby girl is *just* as pretty as her momma!

Annika Lynn is the little one’s name. Annika because hey, we are Dutch. It is a Dutch name. And, Lynn after her momma’s middle name. She is a true blessing from God. When she arrived into the world, this aunt cried her eyes out. I am just so glad that my sister had a great delivery and got to add to her already adorable family! 

Now my world is filled with pink! So far, her days and nights are switched around but she is healthy and her mom is doing great! I hope that if I ever get the oppertunity to be a preganant mom, I can take EVERYTHING with a quarter as much grace as my wonderful sister does. She never complains, she never asks for help, she is just a wonderful :woman, wife, daughter, sister, & MOM! I love you, sister, and you bless my life each and every day. 

I thank my God every time I think of you. Philippians 1:3
