Over the holidays we were able to travel to Florida to see Grandma and Grandpa along with my brother and brand new niece, Aubree Noelle who was born the day we arrived Dec. 23rd by emergency c-section. She was 6 lbs 13 ounces and 18 inches long.
Isn’t she beautiful? I’m so excited to be an aunt! It’s a pretty cool feeling to hold a little baby that belongs to my brother. He’s still trying to figure out the whole father thing and it’s really cute although right now I’m hoping he’ll actually get a little bit of sleep. How well I remember the days of having my first child, being sleep deprived and clueless. When the triplets came along I had a better idea of what the heck I was doing but still the lack of sleep during their first few weeks home were physically and emotionally draining. I read recently that going without sleep for 24 hours is the equivalent of being legally drunk. Crazy right? Here’s hoping they get some sleep soon.
What a cute bunch of kids and such proud grandparents.
Now we’re back home and I miss her terribly but I’m looking forward to seeing her again soon and for her to get to know her aunt, uncle and all her cousins.
Welcome to the world beautiful girl.
