This Christmas I was given the gift of family. A strong, healthy baby girl was born to us. My brave sister gave birth to Baby Girl on Christmas. She has the sweetest nose, just like her mama. Born on a white Christmas, she is the most special gift we will ever receive.
I am still excited to open the presents that are under the tree. I had saved little money to buy gifts for Christmas this year so I wanted to come up with something meaningful and special. It is hard to find gifts for my family who already have enough ‘things’, I decided to go for something simple. A gift for each of my family to share with Baby Girl. A book. A special one for each of them to read with her, and a letter explaining why I chose each book.
