Welcome Lilly "Bug" - Paula's Blog Hop

A month ago my friend Paula was giving birth of her daughter Lilly (aka "Bug"), she born on Friday June 4th and weighing in at 7 lbs and 13 1/2 oz.

Hannah, Deborah and Helen came up with great idea to celebrate it with a BLOG HOP.. and I'm so excited to join it as my first blog hop.
If you came here from Heather's blog, that means you're on the right path.. :)  

A little ray of sunshine has come into the world,
A little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl.
Each time a child is born... the world lights up with new possibilities.
Babies are bits of stardust, blown from the hand of God.

Baby tips for the day: 
Do you know that if you put the baby down while they’re awake is better than if you put down after they are asleep?
When a baby is put down after they are asleep, they’ll eventually stir and will probably wake up. 
If they aren’t being held in your arms anymore, they might get upset and want to be back in your arms. So they’ll cry until they are.
But if you put them down while they’re awake and they fall asleep on their own, they won’t be startled when they wake up because they’ll be right where they were before they fell asleep. If they sleep well, then you'll have precious time for yourself perhaps doing craft things, who knows? :)

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.
