Welcome, Mia Patricia!

My baby sister was born today! Even though Mommy went into labor yesterday, our baby was born in the wee hours of today. Her name is Mia Patrticia and she was born at 1:24 a.m. Here's one of the first pictures of her. I think she is just so very, very cute.
Here's a picture of the scale so you can see her weight. She's 6 pounds and 14 ounces and 20 inches long. So tiny!

Later in the morning, Uncle Jon, Aunt Jenn, Cousin Jack and I arrived at the hospital to see Mia for the first time. I wore my "Big Bro" T-shirt for the occasion.

Here I am meeting her. I was a bit nervous at first and afraid of touching her.

But Mommy assured me that it was OK and that Mia was now a part of our family. That made me feel a bit better. I wasn't ready to hold her or anything quite yet. Baby steps, people.

Then I found out that Mia had a special gift just for me, her big brother.

Oh, boy, it's a Batman helecopter. Neato! That sure did make me feel special.

By the end of our visit, I felt a bit more comfortable and we took our first picture as a family of four. Awww!

And I gave my new sister a few pats. She was so soft and nice. I was certainly warming up to the idea of being her big brother.

Soon it was time to say goodbye to Mommy, Daddy and Mia for the day. It was so great to meet you, little sister! Welcome to our family. I love you already and I can't wait until you get home tomorrow...

Then it was off to Mimi and Pop-Pop's house for Thanksgiving dinner and to spend the night. Tomorrow, Mimi, Great-Grammy Mary and I are going up to our house to welcome Mia home from the hospital. Stay tuned...
