I meant to do this a couple of days ago but have been busy with kids and work. I just wanted to welcome my new little niece to the world. My sister Sarah gave birth to a wonderful little baby girl on Tuesday afternoon. She was 8 lbs. 5 oz. and was 20 inches long. The named her Mikayla Ashlee. It is very exciting to have a little niece, but the only disappointment for me is the fact that I am not going to get to see her anytime soon. I really do look forward to the day I get to old her. As for now photos will just have to do.
As my brother put it on his twitter feed, technology is amazing. Sarah gave birth and with in a matter of an hour I got to see photos of her. (I am sure I could have seen them sooner, but I would imagine they were pretty busy.) I love the fact that we can use technology in this manner and be able to be a part of what is going on in our friends and families lives without having to actually be there.
Congratulations to Sarah and Josh on your new little angel. She is precious, and I am sure that the both of you are going to make wonderful parents. But, as for now have fun with nights of very little sleep. It gets better I promise, but it will never be the same as it use to be. In the whole scheme of things the lack of sleep is definitely worth it.
