A Fair Trade



Here she is! Born Oct. 14, 2009 she weighed 5 pounds 1 oz. was 17 1/2 inches and is still the size of a doll. When I take her places people always ask if she's real. As you can tell, I've traded my painting time for as much nap time as I can get.

Sorry to those of you hoping for more photos and a name. It's sad that as a parent I need to be so cautious, but after struggling for so many years to have her, I'm not taking any chances.

Happy Holidays to all of you!
