Thank heaven for little girls!

And Miss Cadence is definitely a piece of Heaven!

On Monday after work, Amy and I headed up to Shae and Shane's, right across the Canadian border. We couldn't wait to see Cadence! She was born on May 7th at 7:50 pm and she weighed 8lbs 2 ounces and she was 21 inches long. She is absolutely gorgeous and such a good baby. She sleeps a lot and she is so funny to watch as she is sleeping. She makes the funniest faces and she yawns a lot and stretches out her body which is just so cute! I loved holding her and just looking at her. Amy and I left at about 9:30 but I decided that I couldn't wait until the weekend to see her again, so I drove up yesterday after work too. It's about an hour and a half drive and well worth it.

When I got there yesterday, Shae's mom Pam gave her right to me and I just held her and watched her sleep. The only time she fusses at all is when she is getting her diaper changed, but after that's done, she is so quiet. Shae laid her in her crib for the first time, just for a few minutes, and we all stood there and took pictures and stared at her. There is a musical aquarium on the side of her crib that kept her attention for quite awhile and then Shane was singing a song to her which was so sweet. She looked so tiny in the crib!

That little sweetie is one loved little girl! I can't wait until Friday when Becca and I go up there to see them again. She is just precious!
