Welcome Baby

We are so excited to share some great news. My dear high school friend, Emily, just had her first child in February.  YEAH!!! and congratulations to the new parents.

Nicholas and I had the pleasure of visiting Emily, Ethan and their new little baby today.  I've been dying to meet this little one and to catch up in person with Emily. It had been WAY, way to long...  Can I tell you, what a sweet, sweet baby.... Like a dummy I forgot my camera, but I got one photo with my phone.

I had decided I wanted to share a special gift with the baby and so I've been working on a Birth Announcement poster.  Here is the finished product.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  Since Emily named the baby after the Kestrel falcon I knew immediately that I wanted to include some bird images in the poster.  These were fun to create and adds just a little bit more personalization to the poster. Emily had announced Kessie's birth/name with the quote "the cutest little bird arrived today", so I paraphrased that quote for the poster.  Emily had mentioned her nursery was themed with blues, greens, grass and bugs. It was a little bit of a risk but I think it will work well with her decor.

Welcome to the world baby Kestrel!  Here's to many more milestones ahead.
