Visiting Violet

On St Patrick's day, our new neice made her grand entry into the world. Her birthday will be well celebrated world over with leprechauns and clovers, green and Irish!
But green was not the colour of the day, that would go to the colour purple. Little Violet is aptly named, she is dainty and beautiful and well dressed too in her mums favourite colour. We think she's special. 

The kids were very excited to meet her at just 4 days old, and all got cuddles with the sleeping beauty. Kate sat beaming beside anyone who had her, her arms waiting folded in a cradling position, begging for an extra cuddle until she was rewarded
Luke was a bit shyer, so adoring and in love but a little unsure how to handle this wee delicate bundle of snuggles. Granma helped while he gazed on. 

We gave the tired family a chance to rest in the afternoon, popping out to the mall for a wander. All the girls wanted were baby dolls that wee and cry. (They didn't get one) but when they got home all three children grabbed their own baby dolls and started breastfeeding, swaddled go and rocking them to sleep!

So welcome baby Violet, your cousins adore you already and your aunty and uncle will always be here for you xxxx

Update: the very next day, the girls begged me to let them buy another baby doll each. They came home with life size dolls, which can wear newborn outfits perfectly. It's been nothing but babies all day!!
