I am beyond thrilled to announce the birth of my first and only niece, and Ginger’s one and only cousin:
Josie Jean Williams!!!
My beautiful sister Andrea gave birth to little baby girl Jo on February 12, at 11:28 pm. Baby Jo popped out, with great difficulty, weighing 9lbs 7oz and measuring 20 inches. So basically she’s a little giant. But a super cute and beautiful one!
Both Brian (dad) and Andrea are so in love with their little doll, and so are we! After a little bit of a rough entrance for both mom and baby, Josie and Andrea are now safely home. Yesterday we got the cousins together for their first encounter. I think it went really well…don’t you?
Haha, Ginger was actually loving it, and smiling the whole time, just not of course when the camera was brought out. I can’t believe Ginger is already 5 months old, she seems so much bigger than baby Jo!
Here is baby Jo and her mom looking beautiful. It is so amazing to see my little sister take to being a mom so naturally. Maybe I haven’t needed to mother her all these years…
On Saturday night we anxiously waited outside of Andrea’s delivery room for hours and hours of what we later found out was a very intense labor. Then all of the sudden I heard this little cry. I immediately welled up with tears, and shouted, “I heard her!” She didn’t have a name yet, but I was overcome with so much love. Aren’t babies incredible? I’m amazed at how much I already love my little niece. I thought there was only room in my heart for Gigi! But apparently I can love another.
Isn’t the hair amazing? It’s sooo soft. Ginger and I are only a tiny bit jealous of it.
Andrea’s husband said the cutest thing about Josie, and I thought it was the best way to describe having a new baby. He told my mom (Grandma) that, “It’s like a cross between having a new toy, and a crush on a girl.” Don’t you LOVE that!?
Anyway, welcome welcome welcome little Josie. We love you with all our hearts! Ginger’s not even jealous she has to share the attention. But she did insist on just one more picture of her…just to even things out. What kind of mom would I be if I said no to such a reasonable request?
Love you all!
