My Brand New Niece

After many, MANY years of waiting, my older brother and his wife at last welcomed their baby girl this last week. Say hello to Brianne!

Do you see the chubby legs and arms??? That's what 10 pounds, 15 and 3/4 ounces produces!!!

This is Joe, the proud papa. You have no idea how incredibly happy I am for him.

And heeeeeere's mama! Melanie, a.k.a. Mel, was such a trooper through this entire pregnancy. I can't imagine carrying SO MUCH BABY, especially near the last, lol.

I totally stole every single one of these pictures, and naturally assume they'll forgive me because, after all, I'm so awesome. That and it may be months before I get to hold her since they live in Kentucky. This was one of my favorite's, though. Brianne won't take pacifiers, but apparently daddy's finger tastes yuuuummy :)

Yeah, before I even scrolled down enough to see her weight, all I could say is, What a big baby!
I'm used to six pounders.

I'm with Cynthia, I saw the pic and went, wow! she's huge. But so beautiful. She weighs more than my 7 week old Rylen weighs now! Congrats to them for having a beautiful little girl.
