A Great Excuse!

So, I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately, and the lack of my weekly confessional. However, I have a GREAT excuse for not being tied to my phone/computer...

And THIS is the reason....

My sweet sweet (name to be determined/announced later on!) niece!!!!

In case you weren't familiar with her (LOOONG) journey to get here, this post and this post might help remind you...

Needless to say, we are THRILLED she is here! She is a doll! After a little scare and some breathing trouble, she is happily camping out in the NICU for a while- but what better place is there with round the clock care and monitoring?! She is doing better and getting stronger every day! And her cannula and IV came out this morning!

Sweet sweet baby, we are SO glad to finally meet you!!!

Charley had a GREAT seat on Auntie Kiki's tummy!

Heading to the hospital!

Owen snuggling with mommy!

Jay enjoyed playing hide and seek in the curtain. Ha!

Beautifying! Can you tell she hadn't had the big contractions yet?! :)

Meanwhile, Jay had his first slumber party!

Sweet sweet baby girl!

Dangit! Blurry!

I know I already said this, but I am really so excited for them (despite having never met them) - not much better than deserving parents finally getting to meet their little miracles! Hope she gets out of the NICU and gets to come home soon :)
