baby shelby

I've been waiting for a long, long time to share this bit of wonderful news. My brother and his wife (Seth's folks) are having a baby. She's a girl...we just found out last week. Her name is Shelby.

My brother's initials are SAK. When my sister-in-law married him, her initials became SAK. So when Seth was born, they named him so that his initials would match theirs. Shelby is destined to follow suit.

When my brother Shawn was a little boy, he had a burgundy monogrammed sweater. Actually, we all had them. The unfortunate thing for Shawn is that he never seemed to outgrow his sweater. And for some reason my mother never seemed to notice that for three years in a row, that sweater is what Shawn wore on picture day. I wish we could find it (probably moth-holed) and take a picture of Seth with it on.

Visit my friend Mo's site to get doo dads like those I decorated this sonogram with. It's an easy and fun way to fancy up your photos.
