My cousin Carrie and her husband Tim welcomed a sweet baby girl, Addison Leigh, to their family in the wee hours of this morning. I’m anxiously awaiting the first pics of her, that I’m sure will soon circulate via the family e-mail chain!
I was lucky enough to visit with Carrie last month… she was 8 months pregnant and positively glowing! I can only imagine how thrilled she is this morning to finally be holding her daughter in her arms.
Every time I hear of a new baby being born, I can’t help but think back to when Damon and Avery joined us (although it seems like a lifetime ago now!). There’s no experience quite like it, and although I’m glad that my baby-delivering days are a thing of the past, a part of me yearns for those first moments again.
So, Congratulations to Carrie and Tim!!!!! I hope that you’ll both savor each and every “new” moment to come, because they pass all too quickly…. before you know it, your baby will be starting First Grade!
