New Baby Cookies for a New Big Brother!

 Good friends of ours just had a perfect little baby boy!!

His name is Hayden (isn't that a great name!) and he is soooooo super lucky

to join their family.

Know why?

Because one of the greatest little munchkins is his new big brother!!!

(that's Gavin up there and his Mommy on his first day of preschool!!)

Gavin is so very excited to tell everyone he meets that he has a new baby!

He loves to introduce him.

But still, sometimes its hard to suddenly share Mom and Dad with a new baby.

So instead of

'Congratulations on your new baby boy' cookies....

....I made

'Congratulations!  You are a Big Brother!' cookies.

From here on out, he's no longer out numbered by parents!!

There will always be someone around to distract them while he sneaks an extra cookie!

(don't worry, I didn't tell him that....yet)

Someone to laugh at his jokes and watch movies with.

Someone who will look up to him like he's a rock star.

Someone he can look out for and watch over,

like the super great big brother he already is!

So Congratulations to Mark, Stefanie, Gavin and Hayden, on becoming

a fabulous family of four!!!

These cookies are just for Gavin,

but I'm pretty sure he'll share them with you!

Thanks for stopping by,

Lizy B
