We Finally Got Our Hands on Her!!

We finally got to meet my new niece, Auden, this weekend. The boys were just as excited as I was, and took up alot of my cuddle time with her! I had to keep taking her back from them. They had to stay in her birth state for quite a while, so they haven't been home long. I couldn't get over how tiny she is. You always forget how small they are when they're brand new. (Of course, mine were NEVER really that small. I birth moose children!)
Braden was the one who really didn't want to give her up. He wanted to know how old they are when they open their eyes. How cute is that. I had to explain that babies aren't like puppies. I would take her from him and then he'd be right back wanting another turn.
Bryce ended up staying the night there, much to Rylan's delight. Rylan adores "Bice".
Cade has become quite the photographer. His love of cameras means I get to be in the pictures :) His birthday is in a few days and he has asked for a camera. I love that.

Jennifer,

It is a good thing we don't live closer to you. I think that my eldest daughter would've leaped through the computer in order to hold your new beautiful niece if she could.

Congratulations to your entire family!

It sounds as if my boys may have been as big as yours. Mine ranged in size of 8lbs 15oz to 9lbs 10oz

I know it must have felt so wonderful to hold little Auden in your arms. She is such a cutie pie. I love that your boys wanted to hold her and be around her so much. That is the sweetest thing!!! I hope Cade gets that camera...looks like he's a natural!!!
