meeting baby aspen
the weather here in SLC is pretty lousy, and apparently it’s affecting the flight schedules. so i am sitting on the floor in the SLC airport eating a bag of Lay’s potato chips with Quincy, and she says "doesn’t this just seem like a picnic!"… she has a lot better attitude than i do!
last week, my little sister, katie, gave birth to her first baby… a girl! a new niece for me! she had her while i was in chicago for CKU, and it was close to killing me that i couldn’t be there and see her for myself. so quincy and i jumped on some frequent flyer miles yesterday and 24 hours and probably about 200 photos later, we are headed back home.
dang, that is a cute baby!
she is just so sweet, so calm, so bright and alert! it was so fun to just sit and hold her! they are so little and snuggly. that is pure bliss, holding a new one like that…
i am still trying to decide if it was making me feel excited… or scared to death! i am pretty sure it’s a mixture of both! i am definately excited to get me one of those… but i think that short 24 hour glimpse brought back some serious flashbacks. life as i know it, will no longer exist… at least for a while! (smile)
it was so fun to see katie and her husband clark adapting and parenting. clark has to be the cutest dad… he is completely smitten with his new little girl… he still has his hospital bracelet on (a week later) and just doesn’t want to take it off… so sweet!
even a short visit is a good one… man, it’s hard to leave that little bundle!
such a miracle..

i am home… and the bunches of photos i took today have been perfect for a quick little project i had to pull together tonight. i have an appearance on channel 3 in the morning, to promote the women’s expo… and i am highlighting some of my products. we are showing some of my new paper,
self-adhesive chipboard, tape, photocorners, journaling spots etc… we have had some exclusive kits put together to sell at the expo! so that will be fun… alright… i gotta gather everything up for tomorrow… i think it will air around 8:30am.
fun stuff… cute baby!
