. . . tiny fashionista . . .

. . . first photo i ever saw 
of baby hayden . . .
. . . only time i've seen her mad . . .



. . . she was probably crying 
because she wanted someone 
to put cute stuff on her . . .
. . . let's start with a hairdo 
and a tiny bow . . .
. . . instant upgrade 
from standard 
hospital newbornwear . . .



. . . the 'do is still looking good . . .
. . . and the coral floral nightie 
agrees with her, apparently . . .



. . . this party on her head 
is a real eye-opener . . .
. . . ahhhhhhhh . . .



. . . first family photo . . .
. . . please note her blanket . . .
. . . great find, suzie! . . . 
{she's the other grandma}



. . . same headband, but . . . 
. . . but . . . 
. . . in jessalyn's words ~ 
"okay, sure. 
i'll wear a maxi skirt" . . .
. . . with metallic gold 
and silver stripes, no less . . .



. . . this screenshot 
from our facetime session today 
is a little blurry, 
but you get the idea . . .
. . . this baby is an angel . . .
. . . and you'll notice that 
all the spots 
on her cheetah print blankie 
are actually hearts . . . 
. . . please . . .



. . . after she got her first real bath . . .
. . . a ginormous gerbera daisy
 sprouted on her tiny noggin . . .
. . . and she folded her little hands 
on her pink giraffed belly . . .


. . . eight photos 
of our eighth grandbaby . . .
{sorry they're all from iphones. 
hopefully, some "better" camera shots 
are in the near future. hint, hint.}

. . . and here's the part 
you might have been waiting for . . .
. . . it's tradition to give away oops!
 each time a baby is born . . .
. . . eight of them this time . . .
. . . leave a comment 
for a chance to win . . . 
. . . winners will be chosen 
tuesday the 14th of august . . .
