My sister's good friend had a baby on Nov. 6 at 7:23 p.m. She weighed in at 8 lbs, 11 oz., and was 21 inches long. But she's more than just numbers...she's a sweet baby girl who shall have no choice but to be pals with my sister's baby, Cailin. And her name, her beautiful name...is Ireland Grace. Her nickname is just as cute: Iggy. DON'T YOU LOVE IT!??!
I will say, Ireland was a stubborn lady. She refused to sleep.
We tried. We tried. We tried. But she was so alert. But so cute regardless.
She might look like she's sleeping here...but she's not. Trust me.
See? She should be asleep right now... but no...must know what is going on! haha
At. All. Times.
But gosh, she's cute when awake, no?
Mama took matters into her own hands then...
While she fed Ireland, I snapped a few of the adorableness that is her room.
I know you're dying to know...did it work? Did baby Ireland fall asleep??? Here is a clue....
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! And then she was all mine!!!
Uh oh... I must have had too much fun without her awake because her eyes were back open...
This crib was made by Ireland's grandpa!! Quite the good job in woodworking, no?
Because she was disgruntled yet again... we tried one last outfit. And I'd say this might be a familiar face on Husker fans....
Natalie, Chuck and Ireland (and the kenneled dogs: Foxy, Uno and Norman!!!), thank you so much for inviting me into your home to document your beautiful, wakeful lil' bundle of joy. She truly is a doll...and I can't wait to watch her grow. Happy holidays!!!
