Meet Miss Audrey Bird

Well, her name is not really Audrey Bird. I just like to call her that. Officially she is Audrey Hazel Johnson and I am her aunt.

She is my first niece by blood. (I married into aunthood with 4 nephews and 2 nieces)

 So I flew to Michigan last weekend to meet her and to help out when I could.

My help included: making chocolate chip cookies from scratch, holding baby, snuggling baby, taking pictures of baby and installing a winter covering for the car seat. All serious business.

Her parents like to call her "bean" or "sugarbean".

 But I think she is more of a sweet little bird, an Audrey Bird.

So while my poor, poor husband toughed it out with two wild boys, a leaking ceiling and an extremely tardy plumber, I snuggled with this little bug.

Not a bad way to spend a weekend, wouldn't you say?

There is one problem though. Babies. They always seem to get bigger, regardless of what you tell them. So hopefully this little lady will stay little enough for her Uncle Ryan to get lots of cuddle time, but big enough to handle her cousins' "love", cause they sure want to love on her.

What a cutie! so awesome you were able to go home to spend time with her.

I love her name, that would have been the name we chose if we were having another girl.
