Welcome to the World, Baby Noah! (Day 9)

The day we brought Olivia home from the hospital, David's cousin (am I allowed to say and my personal favorite?) called us to congratulate us on our new addition and also to announce that she and her equally amazing husband were expecting a little bambino of their own come November.  Well, HELLO November and welcome Baby Noah!

I have spent several hours stalking Brianna and filling her head with all of my personal beliefs on which baby products are good and which ones are flops.  This morning, I pulled out my phone to text her and ask if she was having any contractions and stopped myself because I remembered how my dad checked on me EVERY HOUR the week they were out here before Olivia was born, and not that it wasn't great, but it was a total bummer to say, "Noooo, nothing yet."  Well, lo and behold if I didn't check on facebook a few hours later and see that Brianna Reina Showell was a mom!!!!  I swear I probably checked facebook 20 times today waiting for pictures, stats, ANYTHING.  Not to mention, I'm pretty sure I filled Brianna's inbox with way too many text messages to even be considered a normal member of her family.  (Sorry Bari, but I was just sooooooo excited!)

Anyway, without further ado, here is the newest addition to our extended family:  Noah Showell, born November 15th at 10:43pm, weighing 8 pounds 5 ounces and measuring 19.25 inches.  He is absolutely adorable and already sporting way more hair than his cousin Olivia.


Yes, Brianna, he IS cute as a button!



David must have told Michael how awesome that pose is!


Such a sweet moment.

And, as if my cousin-in-law didn't have enough on her plate being a Craft Goddess, working at Nike and becoming a new mom, she's started a side project as an image consultant.  You can check out her new endeavor here.  Because, seriously, who wouldn't want to take style tips from this knock-out?!



So, OBVIOUSLY, today I am so so so thankful that our new baby cousin has arrived and is as perfect as can be.  And, I am doubly thankful that in just a little over a week, I will be able to stalk meet him in person and get my hands on a teeny tiny newborn!

Congratulations Michael and Brianna - you are in for the most amazing ride of your life.  A plethora of hugs and kisses to your beautiful little family.
