It's a...GIRL!



After months of waiting and wondering, we finally delivered a beautiful healthy baby girl! Our precious little bundle of joy, Amara Sophia Vella, came to join us March 21, on Good Friday, at 6:07AM. She weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces, and was 21 inches long. As of this past Monday morning, she has already gained back more than her birth weight and was weighing in at 8 pounds 2 ounces. A reminder of just how quickly babies grow. As my friend Betsy says, "Babies don't keep!"

So far little Amara has been a complete joy! She sleeps for three hour stretches at night, and is pretty content during the day -- although she does enjoy being held and snuggled. Of course, I have no problem with that because since she is our last baby I plan to hold and snuggle her as much as possible!

So there you have it, the latest edition to our family, and the new light of our lives! Talk to you soon!

Congratulations, Lisa! She's beautiful! What a mop of hair (but I'm partial to mops since I had one myself ;o)). Enjoy being a new mommy again.
