Welcome To The World, Alessandra!

     On Thursday, October 25th, my second granddaughter was born, and what a glorious day it was! Welcome to the world, Alessandra Harper Lira. Mom got through surgery just fine and Dad is over the moon happy. We all agree that Aless looks most like her daddy right now, but she DOES have the round cheeks of a Doyle baby. She has a healthy appetite too, which doesn't surprise me in the least since several of us in the Doyle family tend to eat like Vikings (nope, not naming names!).

     I fell in love with Aless the minute I laid eyes on her, as did her big sister Isabella. I think these two girls will always be close sisters, and I can't wait to see what life has in store for them!

     Everyone has been asking for photos, so there you go. And there's plenty more where these came from!


Proud big sister!

Those Doyle cheeks!

Can you feel the love?

     We are truly blessed with the birth of a second grandchild. I pray that there will be many, many more in our future!!

  7. You have a beautiful family! Thank you so much for sharing! I never had children so grandchildren aren't part of the mix, either. Brenda

  9. CONGRATULATIONS! She is absolutely precious. I love those super deep blue eyes of a newborn. Those early days are so fleeting. Whenever I see a newborn I am surprised again at how tiny they are. I'm glad that the birth went well. Soak up every moment:)
