The little beauty weighed nine pounds, three ounces and has slate blue eyes and dark brown hair. Her proud grandparents are Marianne and Timothy J. Burns of Loch Lloyd and Mary Ann and Bernard D. Craig of Mission Hills and Naples, Florida. Ginny is named after her beloved maternal great-grandmother, Virginia “Ginny” Burns, who passed away on January 20th. Ginny’s darling nursery is painted mint green and features a teddy bear and honey bee décor.
