The main reasons I went to Philadelphia were to meet my niece, and to help my sister and her fiancé in those first few sleep-deprived weeks of being new parents. This included helping with the dishes and the cooking and snuggling the baby as necessary. It was hard for me to be away from my own girls, but it was a really special time and I’m so glad I was able to make the trip. (Also, as far as the headline goes, that song was stuck in my head pretty much the entire trip, haha!)
She is just the sweetest baby. She wasn’t fond of sleeping in her crib or co-sleeper so we took turns holding her while she slept, but I only heard her really cry a couple times the whole time I was there.
Here are a few of my favorite photos of her from the trip:
As much as I missed my team back home, it was really hard to leave. I can’t wait for Pumpkin and Peanut to meet their new cousin!
