Grand Niece Tessie

Isn't she lovely?
My dear niece Stacey gave birth to beautiful baby Tessie yesterday. Em and I expected Tess to arrive Monday, June 6. Stace even kept us updated on Facebook  - from the hospital. Mid-day, the Mom-to-be  posted a photo of her own feet all cozied up in a pair of silly frog-prince socks. But still no Tess.

The little lady  wasn’t quite ready to make her debut on June 6 - the anniversary of D-Day. Instead, she made the next day -- Tuesday June 7 --  her own. The day the Boston Red Sox would battle it out for first place against the Yankees .

This sweetie's name wasn't chosen willy-nilly! 

Perhaps Tessie's birthday wasn't chosen so willy-nilly either, for the Red Sox defeated the Yankees 6-4 in their quest to take the sole American League East lead , just after her arrival.

Congratulations to Stacey and Shane. And thank you Tess for making this Mommy-of-the-Bride a proud grand aunt, and the Bride-to-be  -- and her brother --  thrilled cousins (once-removed!) May your life be blessed, with a tad of those blessings spilling over to  the Red Sox. The Series'll be in full swing around the time of Em's wedding, just four months from today.
