My daughters and I just met my cousin’s new baby, Rose. She just had her first round of immunizations and could start seeing germ-y people like us. Baby Rose has chubby cheeks and loves to be held. We all took turns holding her and she sleep like this the whole time.
She sometimes would make funny faces while she was sleeping. We thought she smelled something yucky in her dreams when she made this face. The girls loved holding her. They felt like little mommies.
The American custom is to celebrate the coming of a new baby with a baby shower. The Chinese custom is to give a red envelope with money inside when you first see the new baby to wish them good fortune in life.
Welcome Baby Rose to our crazy family! We are so blessed to have you in our lives.
Love, Aunt Chrissy xo
