A Special New Year’s Gift

My family got the best New Year’s present today!

My niece Stacy—who’s always been like a sister to me—had a beautiful baby girl at 12:31 AM today (at 12:31 on 12/31—don’t you love it?).

Little Nina Avery is the first child for Stacy and her husband Nabil, and from what I hear, they are absolutely thrilled. Apparently Stacy said, “She’s perfect!” And Nabil said, “She’s really ours!”

It’s just wonderful to see such a sweet, loving couple have a such a sweet little bundle. I am so happy for them!

Here are a couple of pictures for you to enjoy.

Here's the beautiful little girl in her Mommy's arms.



Here are the happy parents with little Nina.



Happy New Year, everyone! May the new year bring you many moments as precious as this.

Congrats to Stacy and Nabil! What wonderful parents, too.
(And yes, the tax deduction is a good thing.)

I love photos of newborns. They always look like a different species. One that is so much wiser than we are. Sort of like little yodas.
