Happy News!

Today I'm grateful for babies, especially the sweet little girl variety :).  My husband's cousin just had a beautiful baby girl a couple of days ago (congratulations Gibson family!), and we found out yesterday that my sister is having a girl!  Being the oldest in my family, I have yet to be an auntie to any neices or nephews on the Elzea side, so any baby is extra special to me.  But being Mom to three boys (whom I love and wouldn't trade for any amount of girls!), I am super excited to be getting a neice! 

Have you seen this before?  I thought it was a cute idea.  To announce the findings of her ultrasound, my sister ordered a cake with filling that would correspond to boy (blue) or girl (pink).  Once we all gathered at my parents' house, we cut into the cake to find....

It was squeals of delight all around!  When my sisters found out that Jaxon was a boy they groaned - literally!  They've wanted a neice so badly, and now they get one!  I'm grateful for the happiness that little ones bring to families.  There isn't anything quite like it.

I hope your Tuesday is wonderful!  Tessa
