I am now a GREAT aunt! Ms. Kendall Shae made her appearance Tuesday, 6/4/13 at 4:34 am weighing 7 lbs and 18" long!

It is truly one of the most surreal things in the world that my NEPHEW is a father! But he is super excited about it, which is great!
Mama decided to go to a birthing center instead of the hospital and had the baby the au'natural way. Bless her heart! No drugs!! Oh and she went home the same day... a mere 2-3 hours after delivery! For you mama's out there that had the hospital births I am sure that sounds crazy. And since she delivered the baby in like a tub of water, the baby didn't need to be cleaned off. Oh and did I mention she was in labor, active like pushing, for 2 hours! From what I understand that is not a long period of time.
This is my favorite picture of the night! I love the pure joy and love that is on my mother's face. I don't think its too common that people get the privilege of being GREAT grandparents. Sadly, my father isn't here to enjoy that privilege, but I can't help but think he would have loved this little girl SO much, and I know that my mother is going to love this baby to the moon and back! And maybe even more than that, if it is possible.
