Isabel Katherine Evans

I am the proud aunt of a 4 week old (on Thursday to be exact) baby girl who weighed in at 7lbs. 3oz. Isabel absolutely deserved this respect well before now, but her birth unfortunately coincided with a very upsetting event that regretfully took most of the attention. We were all fortunate, however, to have such a joyous occasion to draw our attention away from our sadness.

My brother, Tim, has emerged into a proud and doting father literally over night. I about collapsed on the floor when he referred to his daughter as a "princess" and "pumpkin." I don't think Tim even knew his vocabulary extended any further than "buddy" or "football player." I was elated nonetheless. "Daddy's little girl" is a common phrase for a reason. I always knew she would have him wrapped as soon as she graced us with her beautiful presence.

I am flying up to Chicago in November to meet my little niece. I will also be meeting Tim's wife, Ruth, for the first time as well. I am really looking forward to the trip. Evan will meet his first and only cousin from our side of the family. I'm sure he'll just stare and point and say "bu-bee." Yes, Evan, it's a baby. But I am so excited to get pictures of them together.

Congratulations Tim and Ruth!
I love you!

I love this post. Baby girls are pure sweetness. It's surreal seeing Tim cuddling his new baby girl, I love it.
