Yesterday (Tuesday, June 29), Marc and I became aunt and uncle for the third time, and Luke was given the gift of a third cousin.
Amber (my sister-in-law) delivered a healthy baby girl -- Joel and Amber's THIRD girl -- Nope, no boys so far in this family.
Here are the stats....
Madeline Noelle Koehn
June 29, 2010
6 lb. 6 oz.
I KNOW Amber will blog about this birth eventually and I know she'll have many great photos....
And, this birth involved some extra pain and agony than the already painful normal birthing process. Amber told me yesterday that it will be documented on her blog. So, I will leave you all in suspense for Amber's story....But, I will LINK her blog once it is posted.
In the meantime, meet Baby Maddie....
Looking at her, I completely see that she belongs to the Koehn family....To me, she looks A LOT like her older sisters did at birth -- especially the mouth. But, when I said that to Marc, he said, "I don't necessarily see it. She looks like a baby to me."
Aunt Sarah and Baby Maddie....
Uncle Marc and Baby Maddie....
You'll notice we don't have any photos of Luke with his new cousin....That would be because he's 23 months old and couldn't have cared less about a baby. So, he didn't even go and look at her. Luke was much too busy exploring the hospital room. Then, my dad arrived ("Ah-Pah" to Luke), and then, we knew we wouldn't get Luke to look at the baby. Luke was much more interested in going on a walk up the hall with Ah-Pah.
Luke, however, will now have to get used to not being the "baby of the family" on the Koehn side now.
