Peanut and her family

Braylabee Winner posted here.Did I ever tell you guys that Peanut is one lucky little gal?Because she is.  She is part of a very big, very loving family.All her aunts and uncles are just ga-ga over her.Her grandparents just can't get enough of her.(Which is evident by the amount of clothes and toys I just sorted into bins.)(And the smiles we can't wipe off their faces even if we tried...which we wouldn't.)And great-grandparents who love to spoil her rotten.And then there are the cousins.Peanut is incredibly lucky to be part of this big family.Because there are a lot of people to love and adore her.Which can knock the wind out of this little 3 months old. … [Read more...]
