Our New Niece

This is our new niece Victoria Renae Weich. She made her arrival on February 23, 2010 at 1:59 am. She weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz. and measured 19 3/4 inches long. I had the privilage of being part of this special time. I was there when Briana was born as well. Victoria liked having her nose on her Mommy's skin. She must have liked the way she smelled.
Here she is a little more cleaned off and attempting to look around. A church member is a RN in labor and delivery and was on duty the night Victoria was born. It was so nice having Naomi there. Naomi is also a midwife so she has an extra special way about her.

Later that day after I had a few hours sleep, Russell and Chloe were itching to go see their new cousin. When they sit cross-legged, Victoria fits perfectly in their lap. Russell and Chloe enjoyed just sitting there and holding her. After about 20 minutes of them each holing, it was now Auntie's turn.

When Grandma arrived, it was her turn to hold the new baby. With Grandparents, Auntie, Uncle, and cousins around, little Victoria and Briana will be loved very much. Russell and Chloe love when Briana comes over to play and they have a great time. I have had to keep going over with Russell and Chloe that Victoria will not be able play, talk, walk for a while. I tell them that when it is spring, Victoria will be look and smile at you. Around summer or combining time, Victoria will be sitting up and able to play a little. Chloe thinks that Victoria would be able to play with her and Briana in about a week!! This family is excited to watch all the kids grow up together. Being an Auntie is great!

Congratulations to ALL your family on the safe arrival of Victoria. Wish we could have met her before we left :) She looks like quite the doll. Have fun Auntie!

Chloe will have all sorts of ideas for Briana and Victoria by the time Victoria gets to the playing stage of her life.
