Welcome to world Avila Jewel -- our new grand daughter

Mason is now a BIG BROTHER---
his beautiful baby sister Avila Jewel arrived on June 25
at 10:27 am.

 
 We are so excited to welcome our newest precious grand daughter into our family. 







Avila and her big brother live in Atlanta.  (Eight hours away from us).  We will be visiting in a few weeks - after they all get settled into the "busyness" of bringing home a new baby.  

I have been knitting for months!  I will be showing you the special things that I have made for baby Avila in a little bit.  Hopefully she might model some of them for us!  

xoxo,
Vicki

Vicki, I have been reading blogs this afternoon while my hubby rest and sleeps. I brought him home from the hospital last night. Your new grandbaby is precious and big brother is adorable holding baby sister. If he is like my sons, he will be her helper for all her life. They look out after sisters. Have a great weekend. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.
