Thrilled & Excited :)

A few weeks early, but Baby Young has arrived…

Neve Stephanie Young arrived on June 21st at 11:59 am, weighing 7 lbs. 6 oz., 21 inches long.  In this picture, she’s about an hour and a half old.  Isn’t she just beautiful?!?

My little brother is a dad…  (a very tired looking one here!)

Neve caught us all by surprise, arriving well before her due date of July 3rd.  She’s absolutely perfect – just a little doll, and I can’t wait to hold her again!   She arrived just in time for her little cousin Ryla’s 1st birthday!!

Luke & Amanda did a wonderful job…she’s such a cutie, very much like her mommy in looks, with lots of dark hair, and such sweet little features.  It was definitely love at first sight for this auntie!!

Amanda was amazing, enduring a long labour that lasted about 29 hours in total.  To say that she and Luke were going on very little sleep yesterday when we saw them in the first few hours after their baby girl’s birth, they both looked great and were absolutely beaming with pride!

Welcome to the family, Neve…we all love you so much! xoxo

Gotta love those babies who decide to get the show on the road early. Both mine were two weeks early too. Enjoy her!

Awesome! Erin was 31 hours and I know what's that's like from the Daddy side! Very tiring for both parents! Congrats on being an aunt!
