    Default I'm an Aunt!

    My niece that I made the tumbler quilt for had her baby today at 12:41 this afternoon. "Ellie Harper" made her debut weighing in at 8lb1 0z! We are so glad she finally is here my niece has been in labor since Saturday and they kept sending her home from the hospital saying she wasn't ready.

    However she hemorhaged after the delivery and they are trying to stabilize her don't know if she's going to need transfusions at this point. Please keep her in your thoughts for a positive outcome.

    I don't know which to say first - prayers and congratulations all together. I certainly hope they can squelch the hemorrhaging with no further complications and no undeserved fix-it procedures.

    Bet you can't wait to love on that new baby. They are oh, so very, very special.

    If your niece just had a baby, that means you are a great-aunt! That's even better than a regular aunt. You're GREAT!

    So sorry to hear she is having some trouble. I'll definitely pray right now that the docs know just the right thing to do to get her back to health and able to enjoy that precious baby of hers. Don't forget that we love baby pics here! Let us see that little one soon!

    Prayers for your niece. Congratulations on the new addition. Just to chime in - I'm a probate paralegal, and the strict definition of the relationship (at least in Maryland) is, you are the great aunt and she is your grand niece. My sister, the great aunt of my granddaughter didn't like her title. She is officially The Kiki. Enjoy!

    WELCOME MISS ELLIE! and Prayers for your Mom.

    I love the fact that I am a great Aunt to about 20 grand nieces and nephews.
