Welcome Baby Maelin- I’m An Aunt!

My sister had her first baby, a girl, this morning at 5:14 am, officially making me an auntie for the first time.  Her name is Maelin, and she is very cute, and adorable in my humble opinion.  🙂  Both her, and my sister are doing great.  Maelin was sleeping very well this afternoon, only waking for a few minutes to nurse here and there.

I took Cole with me to the hospital, about 30 miles from where we live, and we spent almost four hours there.  It was great holding a newborn again, and she weighed less than either Cole or Ryan were when they were born, so it was a treat to hold such a little peanut, weighing in at 6 lbs., 7 oz.  

I am not sure how my sister feels about me posting a picture of Maelin, since this is not a private blog, but in the next few days, if she says it is okay, I’ll post a picture of Miss Maelin. 

Since this is my first sibling to have a child, I am ecstatic about being an aunt for the first time, and I already love Maelin.  I think being an aunt must be like being a grandparent- you get to do the fun things, and share in the special moments, but you don’t have to do all the work and care that involved.

I am so proud of my sister for believing and trusting in herself, and finding the strength she had within her, to bring Maelin into the world.  This has been an extremely happy day for our family, and I can’t wait to see Maelin again!

Happy Birthday, Maelin, and to my strong “Birthing Goddess” sister, Happy Birthing Day- I love you both!
