I'm An Auntie!

So, my sister had her baby yesterday! Cardin McKenzie King was born at 12:50 am! She was 8 pounds, 4 ounces and 19 inches long. My sister had a wonderful birth experience and I am so thankful for that. She wasn't in pain for too long and she only pushed for 20 minutes! So wonderful!

The only pictures I have are the ones I pulled off my brother-in-law's Facebook page. I didn't get to be there for Cardin's birth (my sister lives 6 hours away) because my sister didn't think she could handle having my two boys in her house while she is trying to adjust to being a new mom. And I don't blame her. It is hard enough to adjust without having a toddler running around and another infant crying. So, I won't get to see her until Christmas. But, my sister hasn't seen Harry yet either, so we will see each other's new babies at the same time!

Speaking of Harry, here are some recent pictures of him. He is now almost 10 weeks old. He is still just the sweetest, cuddliest baby and everytime we hold him, he falls asleep. We are still waiting for him to sleep through the night, though. I haven't had more than 4 or 5 hours of sleep a night since he was born...and those hours aren't usually in a row either! I am getting delirious, but everytime I look in his soft eyes, I am so grateful for him and my older son. And now, my sister gets to experience motherhood, too. It isn't always enjoyable and sometimes it makes me want to jump out a window, but it is all worth it.


  1. Two lovely babies in the family this year!

    I wonder if Max will react differently to his girl cousin than to his brother?

  2. Sweet little Harrison pictures! Kiss him and Max for Grandma Jane!

  3. Oh, almost forgot-congratulations. You will love being an aunt. You get to buy all those annoying toys that a parent wouldn't think of buying! LOL!

  4. Your little guy and her little one are so precious! You are lucky sisters!

  5. Congratulations Auntie Amo!!!! Cardin is beautiful!

  6. Yay for babies!! Congrats to both of you.


I love your lovely thoughts...
