Hi! I hope everyone is having a great week so far.

You may have heard me talk about my pregnant friend Melissa before when I was making her this raggedy doll, and painting her this mixed media art piece for her baby shower. Well, Melissa had her baby girl on the 17th of this month weighing in at a beautiful 7 pounds. Baby was due on the 29th so she came a few days early. This is Melissa's first baby and all went well, although she has warned me that giving birth is the worst pain I could ever imagine. They named the baby Chloe which I think is a beautiful name.

I have been dying to see this new little girl and Melissa really wanted me to meet her too. So yesterday I bussed it down to my Mum's house in the morning and we both went and visited Melissa and baby Chloe. All I can say is that she is the most adorable little baby and I instantly fell in love with her.

This is Chloe

Unfortunately little Cloe was asleep the whole time so I didn't get a hold

Melissa was looking so well only 5 days after giving birth

What a beautiful baby! As a new granny, I'm in love with all babies right now, but this one is especially beautiful - as is your friend!

She certainly is Mum, I was glad you could come along too.

She is such a beutiful baby Darla the photos don't do her justice.

I am in love with all babies too at the moment Sue. I am getting to that stage where I would really like one of my own.
