New Baby

Yesterday some of our closest friends welcomed their 2nd baby girl into the world! Amy and Aaron are the proud parents of Coy Shannon who was born yesterday weighing in at 8 lbs 13 oz. She is beautiful!

We enjoyed getting to visit with them and loved getting to hold that sweet little baby. She doesn't look like she weighs almost 9 lbs. She looks tiny. You just forget how little they are until you see a newborn. I love the way they smell and the little sounds they make. I could have held her all day. I offered to move in with them and take care of her at night, so they could sleep :) They were willing to take me up on that offer especially Aaron. Even Matt got in on the holding. Coy "worked" her magic too, she had Matt wanting another one after holding her. (I knew he would cave once he held her in his arms, she was just too sweet to not want).

We are so excited that Coy is here! We know she is going to be such a blessing to their family and in turn is going to be blessed with awesome parents and a really great big sister, Clara! We love you Coy!

What a great picture of the 3 of them! They look so happy! I love the way newborns smell and sound- there is nothing like it. (but it still doesn't make me want one!)I'm so glad you posted those pictures- precious!

I'm so glad you posted pics of Coy! It's nice to get to see pictures of her so soon after her arrival. Looks like all of them are doing well; I'm so glad. Also, I'm glad your family had fun visiting with them last night. Aren't close friendships wonderful?! :)
