I am three weeks late in getting this post up. How in the world is this beautiful little angel already three weeks old? Please meet my beautiful and amazing great niece - Lauren Olivia Stout. She was born February 16 and she is absolutely perfect.
On Saturday I went over and spent a couple of hours with Lauren and her mommy (Daddy and Lucas were out having some fun times together). This is my third visit with Miss Lauren - and every one has been precious. I sat and held her while she slept and Amanda and I visited. She fussed a little bit a couple of times but not too much. She just barely fits into the afghan I made her as she's really starting to grow now. She did open her eyes for a few minutes at the end of the visit - I can already tell she's taking all of her world in and trying to figure it out.
Lucas is doing great as a big brother. I can't wait to see him in a few months when she's alert and looking around and learning how to laugh - he's going to love making her laugh because he loves making all of us laugh.
And watching Amanda and Steve be new parents again is another joy. Those two just make my heart so happy.
Miss Lauren - you are so loved and I'm so glad you're in our lives.
