My new little niece was born this morning!!!!!!!!!
At around 1am... weighing a whopping 9lbs 8oz!!!! WOAH!
That's MY Niece for SURE! :)
Oh my gosh... I don't know if I'm just tired today or what, but I just get so emotional looking at this picture of Miss Abigail's first moments in this world!
On days like today, where all I can think about are deadlines, work that needs to be finished, a house that desperately needs to be cleaned and projects that have to get done....
It makes me stop to really think about the things that are truly important :)
I'm SO happy for my big sister! She's FINALLY a MOMMY!
I once had a friend who said to me...
"I don't really get it. Why people WANT kids. They are so much trouble, and me and my hubby have a great life!"
Well... the truth is, as Mom's there is a LOT of complaining and crying and patience loosing. LOL
But there is absolutely NO WAY that you can explain the feeling that you and your husband share when you see your child for the very FIRST time, until you experience it for yourself.
It's just breathtaking and quite plainly... a miracle.
Wouldn't trade it for all the money, vacations, "time alone", or home decor
in the WHOLE WORLD!
although on days when your kid draws on your beautiful new bedding AND them... with permanent marker...
it DOES present itself to be a bit tempting......lol. jk
Congratulations Packard Family!
You have so many amazing memories ahead of you!
The Smith's LOVE you so much!
