Yesterday a new role was bestowed upon me…I am an aunt! My SIL gave birth to a beautiful little girl yesterday evening. I haven’t seen her yet but will be heading there in a few hours. Becoming a mom felt special but becoming an aunt feels nearly as special 🙂 …and I haven’t even seen my niece in real life!
Funny thing was that a couple of days before she gave birth (and some days after her due date) I texted my SIL to tell her that I thought she was going to give birth on the 2nd of April and that it would be a girl 🙂 It’s so nice that it’s a girl, because I only have boys (+ one on the way) and it’s only my brother and me. My SIL only have nephews (4 of them) so the first girl there too 🙂
I still have 7 more weeks to go…and then I too will have me some of those sweet little feet 🙂
When I heard my SIL was in labour I started making cookies. In the Netherlands something called ‘beschuit met muisje‘ is served when a baby is born. I made something based upon it: biscotti with ‘muisjes’ (anise seed sprinkles).
I used this recipe for the biscotti, made them smaller and thicker and left out the anise seeds. Just dipped them in melted white chocolate and pink & white ‘muisjes’.
I made something similar here.
