BOYS 2 - GIRLS 2 A newborn baby girl has just tied the score in our family. I’m referring to the newest addition born to my nephew and his darling wife. Two of my nephews now have families of their own, each with a boy and girl. How perfect is that?
I was the only girl in my family with three brothers and then my brothers had all boys … six. Even the dogs in the family were male. When my nephews married my hope was for some ribbons and ruffles and pink to enter our world. Well, it took only 52 years since my birth for another girl to come into the family. Finally!! The first born of this young generation was a girl nearly six years ago. No one was more surprised than me. Three years later two boys followed … cousins, only two months apart. I wondered if the streak was going to stop at one girl. Nope! The score is now even with this baby girl born eight weeks ago. Although the score may not remain tied for long as twins are expected in February.
These Baby Rattle Cookies were made to honor the birth of grand niece #2. She’s beautiful and precious with an adoring big brother. What a perfect occasion to christen my new rattle cutter. These rattles would be so sweet for a baby shower too.
