It didn't take long for little baby girl to arrive. She was born at 11:27 pm on Saturday April 6th. She was a tiny 5 pounds 10 ounces and 19 inches long. And she has lots of soft dark hair. What a fun surprise!
Once Derek held his little girl his nervousness was replaced with immense love and devotion for his little Sophia. There is a special bond reserved especially for daughters and fathers.
Andi had asked me earlier in the week to make some pages for her baby girl's baby album. Luckily I had purchased the paper and supplies on Friday. As I listened to Sunday conference I designed the pages and added photos taken the night before. I was pleased to be able to present the finished pages to Andi when we visited the new Crockett family Sunday afternoon.
I left empty spaces on the pages for journaling and messages from visitors. The pages match the baby journal Andrea already has for Sophia. The paper line I used is called 'Bundle of Joy' designed by Echo Park. I purchased it from allscrapbooksteals.com.
|The pages are ready for Andi and Derek |
to write about the arrival of their little girl.
|I have always known that Andrea would be an amazing mother. |
This evening was proof to that.
|We had to keep baby vertical so her food would stay in her stomach.|
Her blood sugar levels needed to improve.
|First time as a Grandma for Sharon Crockett|
|Plenty of room for well wishes from visitors.|
A title and embellishments will be added to this page
at another time.
|So fun to decorate with the adorable Echo Park stickers |
from the Bundle of Joy collection.
