That's right! My gem of a sister finally gave birth to my completely perfect niece last night around 11:00. Linnea gave her mommy a rough time of it, with a labor clocking in at 41 hours (topping my own by 5 hours!), and weighing in herself at 7 pounds, 9 1/2 ounces, measuring 20 3/4 inches in length, with a sweet, fuzzy blonde-but-bald head and a great set of lungs!
Big cousin, Ty, and I will be hopping a plane to the coast Friday morning to meet the newest member of our family, so if you don't hear from me for a few days, you can just assume I am completely lost in the precious little girl's grasp and will not surface for air until absolutely necessary.
Thank you, sister of mine, for blessing us with this beautiful gift and for making me an aunt!
