I am an Auntie!!!!!

YAY!!! My sister had a baby girl on Friday, June 30th at 2:18pm. Her name is Meadow Hope and she weighed 6lbs 9 oz. We managed to get up for a very quick visit yesterday on my birthday and it was the perfect birthday present. She is absolutely GORGEOUS, I am totally in love with her!

She loves to sleep on her daddy's chest and she is already a little daddy's girl! It is SO sweet to see!
I am so happy for these two, Naomi and Jerry. It is so awesome to see them as parents. My sister is absolutely amazing - bfeeding is going so well for her (she was feeding Meadow and eating dinner with us last night and Meadow is only 2 days old!!!) and she has become such a beauiful Mom.
And yes, now I am so excited to become a Mom myself. It's a good thing I'm already pregnant because they baby fever is out of control now! ;)

On Saturday we spent the day hiking up to a lovely wildflower meadow. I kept thinking it was rather appropriate considering my niece, Meadow, was born the night before. It was a great hike - 16 km so I was tired afterwards.

Jonathan snapped a couple photos of me at 21 weeks. I wanted our kids to see some day that their mom was still hiking when she was pregnant!
After our hike we met up with my sister-in-law, Rachel and her fiance in Banff for dinner. It was so good to see them again and dinner was amazing.
So it was a busy but very good weekend! :)

what a beautiful photo of you and baby. Looking at that photo I got goose bumps and a verse in Psalms came to mind. "You formed my inmost being; You knit me in my mother's womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

Great pictures, Heather! She is absolutely gorgeous. When I talked to Na on the phone the other night I heard her gurgling and making all kinds of noise.
You look great at 21 weeks, and still hiking. Yahoo! We hope you had a great birthday weekend. I called and left a message, not sure if you got it. We are thinking about you so often, miss our time with you on these special occassions and just the every day stuff. See you in less than 1 month! Big hugs.
