Gosh - haven't you had to wait a while for one of the pink flavour - I'm sure she'll be well worth waiting for - I love my boy to bits but little girls just have that little something about them :o) Not sure about the pink though, with all those boys she may well turn out to be a real tomboy!

Suzy said...

Oh this is terrific news, Finn! Congratulations to you and this little one's extended family. After a run of grandboys it is about time for a grandgirl. Percentages might say that you might have had one by now but no matter, she's here!

Definitely you can think pink for the next baby quilt!

*yippee* Congrats all around.

CONGRATULATIONS, Finn, what a joyous day for you and your family. This baby will be soooo loved, not only by the adults, but all those boys are going to be so protective and love her so. She's one lucky little girl. Pink quilts, pink burp cloths, pink, pink.............Of course when she gets old enough she will probably want blue, just cause all her boy brothers and cousins have blue......What's a grandmother to do???? Whatever Hailey Marie wants, Of course.... You are so right, it's a wonderful life!

Very Big Congratulations!! How wonderful.

Lyn said...

Hi Finn, I am glad babe and momma are doing well. You must be so happy and proud. Congratulations to all.Warmest Regards Lyn

Granny Lyn said...

oh, you will find out, now, that girls taste just a tad sweeter than boys...boys have the toady/dirt taste, and girls have a kitty/cotton-candy flavor. They are both yummy, tho.

Have fun buying PINK!!!!

Lilly said...
