Sweet Amanda is Here!

Yesterday we went down to Miami to visit my brother & his family. We have been blessed with an addition to our family. Amanda was born January 10th at 10:31 pm & weighed in at 7lbs 11oz. Erin was super excited to go visit her cousin Seany (as she insists upon calling him) & to meet her newest cousin Amanda.
Erin was 20 months when Sean was born. We went to visit them in the hospital & my brother & SIL were sweet enough to let David & me hold him. He was absolutely a sweet little angel & barely peeped. Erin was decidely not happy with either of us holding Sean in our arms.
Fast forward to 2007, & along comes Amanda. Unfortunately, Amanda has some jaundice issues as do many babies, & I wasn't comfortable holding her even though my brother & SIL wanted me to. Erin had no problems & couldn't wait to get her hands on Amanda. It was so funny when my brother pointed out how yellow Amanda is. Erin piped in "Just like me momma!"
I took what seemed like a gazillion pics yesterday & ordered them immediately. There's even a cute photo of my SIL with her 2 babies that I'm so in love with. I can't wait to get the pics & mail them out to my dad & stepmother. I know they're going to fall in love with Sweet Amanda.

What a sweetie! You forget how little newborns really are; especially since I never had them that little! Congratulations to your family...
