It is Niestle. Niecele. Niecstle. Niecestle. Niece-stle. Neestle. I guess Niestle is the best one. Perhaps I should have thought this out ahead of time, rather than making it part of the birth announcement. (Bethtastic gets credit for this nickname, which BLEW MY MIND with its wonderfulness.)
This is my niece. She is 19 inches long, and she weighs 7 pounds. She is so glorious, I am blinded. I had to use the little "home-row bumps" to find the right keys on my keyboard. Only through blurriness can I see her beautiful wahing mouth. Her tiny beautiful hands. Her lovely squinched eyes of indignation.
She was born on March 1st at 11:11 p.m., which is very tidy. I like her already.
If I've counted correctly, and it IS hard to count with blinded eyes of love, 14 of you guessed March 1st:
- Amy of WriteBrained
- Mimi of Mimi All Me
- Siera of Take me as I am
- Fiona Picklebottom of Move Along - There's Nothing to See Here
- Julie of Life is Good
- Saly of Incubation Nation
- Emily R of Righters' Writings
- Janet of From the Planet of Janet
- Sally of Kingston Duo
- Alison of Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurt
- Jennifer of Guinea Pig Paperie
I used a Random Number Generator to choose a winner, and it chose #6: Julie of Life is Good. Email me (swistle at gmail dot com) with your mailing info, Julie, and I'm going to start putting things into a box!
Congratulations, Erik and Anna! Really nice work there!
