My Sweet Niece

We've had a wonderful whirlwind week with the birth of my sweet little niece who was born Saturday evening. Weighing in at 7 pounds 8 ounces and 20 inches long you can of course imagine that she is PERFECT! Long, graceful fingers, a crop of red hair and very strong lungs are just a few of her finest qualities. So, without further ado let me introduce:

Vilia Grace Duerr
(pronounced Vee lee ia)
And baby makes three.
Papa with his third granddaughter.
Isabelle is a very proud cousin. Apparently she and Papa felt they needed to color coordinate their outfits before visiting.
My sister is doing really well after a completely natural childbirth. (I know, half of you says, "what the what?!" and the other half says, "she must be a superhero.") Darla and Eric chose the name Vilia after Darla began singing the song of the same name from the opera "The Merry Widow" shortly after their little ones birth.

I can't wait to watch this sweetheart grow up and I am so proud to be her auntie.
Congratulations Darla and Eric. We love you!
