She's a Teeny, Tiny Little Peanut!!

It's a GIRL!!! I'd love to introduce you to my precious new niece, Makenna Catherine Jean Ryan. She is named after her 2 grandmother's and Auntie Cathy just happens to share the same name as her maternal grandmother. She was born at 8:04 this morning and weighed in at 5lb 6oz. What a teeny, tiny little cutie!

Here are a few of my favourite pics from the day.

Noah (5) and Daddy waiting for things to get rolling this morning. On our way to the hospital I asked Noah if he would like a little brother or a little sister. He said he wanted a little sister first and a puppy second because he already has enough 'broders.' Heh!!

Little Makenna weighing in at 5lb 6.4oz. Her head circumfrence was 11.8" and length 18" long.

My brother Dave, the proud Daddy!

In Mommy's arms for the very first time.

Daddy putting a cute little new outfit on Makenna this evening. He's a great dad and not afraid of diapers at all. Go daddy!

Auntie Cathy enjoying her first snuggles. Ahhhhh, I'm in love already! I can't help but wonder how my sweet little muffin Hannah is doing as I believe she is born and living in China already. Praying for her daily. What fun Hannah and Makenna will have together!!

Adorable...totally adorable!! Love you Makenna!

Makenna also shares her birthday with some other special little ones! Her cousin Keenan turned 4 today. Happy Birthday Keenan!

Today we also celebrate sweet Charla's 2nd birthday! This is the first birthday she is celebrating with her family after joining them just before Christmas last year. Charla's mom Dawn and I met while she was in the China line and I am SO thankful that we did! She is a wonderful friend and my life is blessed because she is in it! Happy Birthday Charla!
