Amelia ANNE

Amelia Jane
Originally uploaded by ~ChristieToo
Edited Sunday a.m. now that my brain is awake. Her middle name is Anne. ANNE. Holy cow...middle of the nite last nite it occurred to me I blogged the wrong middle name. LOL!!!!! Ok, on to the original post:

We all made it back home about 5:30PM today. All of us including our newest family member, Miss Amelia Anne. (Poor girl didn't officially get a name until lunchtime today. LOL!)

Long story short (b/c I am so darn tired):
Labor and delivery went very well and quickly. Not quite as quickly as everyone expected, but as quickly as with Lydia. I had fantastic hospital staff taking care of me. Unfortunately the nursery staff was very hit-and-miss. I don't think I'd recommend this hospital to anyone I like, but that's a story for another day. :)

Amelia is doing wonderfully and currently sleeping soundly in her bed. She's such a sweetie pie. She's officially our tiniest and shortest baby. But she's got huge feet! LOL!

You can click on the picture to see a few more pics at flickr. These are the pics from my Mom's camera. (remember, our camera is dead) When I get copies of Granny's pictures I'll add more.

All the kids adore Amelia. Lydia is the most smitten and wants to hold and mother and love on her constantly. She even gets pissy when she can't. Hopefully once everyone gets rested and into a routine the emotions will settle down around here.

Of course, if this damn hurricane moves westward we might have to pack up family and retreat to our house in Oklahoma for a few days. I can't even wrap my brain around the hairy hectic mess that would be. OY!! But that decision will come tomorrow I guess.

Anyway....she's here, she's healthy, and we have all fallen in love all over again.

Congrats, Christie -- she's absolutely beautiful! What a time to have to consider evacuating, though. Sending lots of wishes for safety your way!

Congratulations, Christie! She's beautiful. I hope you won't have to evacuate, can't even imagine what that would be like.

Much love to you and all your family, especially the newest member.
