She's here! Beautiful little Isabel - my brother Jens' daughter, my niece, was delivered safely today and I am happy to report that mother and babe are both healthy as can be.
...I knew they had gone to the hospital late last night, so suffice to say that I slept very lightly - mobile within easy reach - having sweet dreams about a big eyed baby with brown locks... Not far off as it turns out; first thing this morning I got a picture and text from Jens, saying " She's got your hair!" :)
My first thought was that Isabel looks like a Stanfield for sure, and more specifically - like our dad, Robert. This is special for two reasons: Dad got ill a few years back and is no longer with us... But when he was, he was a pretty good looking dude. Jens of course immediately joked "Poor girl, she's the spitting image of old Bobby!" I said "Wonderful, let's call her Bobbybel..."
