Oh this post (and this baby!) are so special to me! Some of my nearest and dearest best friends in this world I met in college playing rugby. We went through so much together and I now we’ve all gone on and moved all over the map and gotten jobs, gotten married … and now one of them HAD A BABY! My good friend, Nicole, and her husband just moved to Kansas with their new baby girl, Annabelle, so when I had a few days off I decided to hop in my car and drive straight East so I could meet her!
It was such a wonderful few days of catching up with each other and meeting this perfect little peanut and talking all thing Packers with Michael (my friend’s husband) and OF COURSE doing a few photos because that’s what I’m good at! ;) We included a lot of things that are special to Nicole and Michael and – now – Annabelle. A old bonnet that belonged to baby Nicole. Nicole’s wedding dress. Their dogs! And – my favorite – a quilt that Nicole’s sister-in-law made out of pretty baby girl fabrics but that also included fabric from a few shirts that belonged to Nicole’s Dad who died a few years ago. So special. Without further ado … Meet Annabelle!!
These are Annie’s big bother and sister Tater and Lolli! Two of THE sweetest dogs I’ve ever met.
I know she’s dreaming of her Grandpa and smiling because she’s so loved!
I am so glad I got to meet you Annabelle! -Katie
