KICKY BOOTS IS HERE!!






Amanda had her baby this morning after 40 grueling hours of labour. YUCK! But, she did it and she even let Tianna, Jen, and I visit her this evening. Aveline Paige Brown is a beautiful, dainty little, dark haired angel. And it's glaringly obvious how much her mommy and daddy adore her. Holding her and stroking her soft, matted hair took me back two years to the day I sat in that very room holding my little dark haired girl. I forgot how small they come! Where did the time go? Welcome to the world Aveline! You better be good for your mom after that labour. I'll leave it at that and let Amanda give all the gory details of her story when she gets back in a few days.

Congratulations!
It is no small feat to bring a new life into this world - why do you think it would be any different than the rest of the world!

I hope your darling daughter feels just as good about this process - your life long memories are hers as well. I hope you shared the excitement with her as well.

Looking forward to your account of the birth as well as your daughters.

Aren't they a cute little family, and Amanda looks incredible given the grueling labour she had. I don't think I've seen a newborn looking so alert before, my babies came in a huge rush and slept A LOT for the first day or two. She is just beautiful. Thank you for posting photos :)
