I'm an Auntie!!! (again)

I have a new niece!!!! Congratulations Tim and Colleen on your beautiful baby girl! I wish we could have been there, but we were there in spirit and celebrating you all the way from Texas. Christy had the brilliant idea of starting a sign, which flew from New York City down to Houston, where we went crazy with markers, and then flew up to Chicago to get the finishing touches, and then was hung up to welcome Maeve home. The sign was hilarious- there were lemurs and babies, a cheetah, mermaids, bugs, castles, airplanes, flowers, etc, etc. Vivi even drew a picture of a fire ant with a big X over it, and told me she would protect Maeve from T-rexes, mean kids, and fire ants. Creating these personalized signs are a tradition in my family- for birthdays, get well soons, or farewells. It was such a good idea to have the sign travel across the US so that we could all contribute...We miss you terribly baby girl!!! I can't wait to meet you!!:)
