Here she is. . .

Isn't she just the most darling little thing ever?! Meet my niece Maddie, I got to hold her today, and take her picture! She is SO small, and I'm not just saying that because I lug around a 22 lb toddler, that I'm trying to claim as a baby still. She really is small, I've never had the honor of giving birth to a baby smaller than 7 lbs. 15 oz. {and that was a long time ago, my most recent one weighed 9 lbs. 6 oz.} Maddie weighed 6 lbs. 1 oz and is 19 inches long. She is perfect and just as cute as she is small.
Babies are awesome, and babies of people you love most are super awesome. I thought about sticking her under my shirt and maybe my sleep deprived brother and sister-in-law would just go to sleep and not miss her. Doubtful, right?
Congrats Brandon and Melissa, we are happy for you. Praying you will get some sleep, even if it is just a little. Welcome to the family Maddie. Today I'm most thankful for you and the gift you are to your parents. You are a blessing!!

This is my 30 days of Thanks, join me if you like!
