SHE'S HERE!
My mom called just a little while ago to tell me that we have a new baby in the family! I am so excited and yet... I am so heartbroken. Stupid I know, but I don't get to be there. We are 15 hours away and I'm missing this awesome moment with my Little Sister. I missed the last one too, but I had a 3 month old and the roads were horrible... I just want to hug my Sister and cuddle that new baby! Gosh darn it all to heck! Pardon my French. Sigh... okay, details, as far as I know... baby and mom are great. Baby is eating already so that is good! 6 pounds 4 ounces 19 inches long. That sounds so tiny. I just bought a package of hamburger that weighs more than my new niece! :D All of my babies were over 8 pounds!! Seems so tiny to me. So, in honor of this little sweetheart, I'm changing my blog look (not that I need an excuse, but this is a good one, don't ya think?) So, we are thinking in celebration colors for our new baby girl! Pink, green, orange, red... I'll post some pics if I get some :)

CONGRATULATIONS--that is wonderful. I am so glad mom and baby are doing well. I know how difficult it is to be away when babies are born--I HATE IT. Can't wait to see the pics. Hope you get to see them all soon.

Love the new look of the blog.

Congrats to your sister! I like the new look!
6 pounds is soooooo tiny. None of my kids has ever been that small. Angel Girl (4 1/2 months now) was over 10 pounds at birth.
