The Sweetest Gift

Noelle's footprints 9-23

Welcome to the world sweet baby girl Noelle Elizabeth. ♥

Born in the evening on September 23rd 2017 via emergency C-section after 32 hours of labor, our daughter is truly a miracle in every sense of the word.

Noelle 10-1

We simply couldn’t be more thankful for Noelle’s arrival and health. She certainly made her big grand entrance!

Please enjoy all the new recipes in Sally’s Cookie Addiction and on my blog as I recover from surgery and begin new life as a mommy.

I now know a love like I’ve never known before. Thank you for all the well wishes!


  1. Congratulations Sally! She is too precious.. Also don’t forget to add little Noelle to the list of your family in the About Us page! 🙂

  2. True blessings! Congratulations. Remember, whatever anyone says, Mommy knows best…except of course, your Mom’s advice. She brought you up afterall.

  3. Sally, little Noelle is adorable! Not all newborns are so sweet at first. I saw that you have 5 new posts in the last week. I hope you pre-wrote them because you really need to be resting with the baby. Feel good! XO

  4. Congratulations on your new baby girl! I just wanted to tell you what a hit your pumpkin cream cheese frosted cupcakes and chai cinnamon swirl bundt cake with the brown butter glaze were the bomb! Thank you!

  5. Hello, your recipe for the brown sugar pound cake in your cookbook calls for 1 cup of vegetable oil. That seems like a lot and my cake wasn’t right so I was wondering if his was a misprint. And I have a Noelle as well!

  6. Oh my goodness Sally, congratulations!!! What a little angel! And may I say…an excellent name choice! My daughter, born in January of 2002, is also named Noelle Elizabeth. 🙂 All my best to you and your beautiful family.

  7. She’s beautiful, and you look great!  Enjoy every single moment.  You’ll be surprised how fast time goes.  May God richly bless and protect your family.
