Well, Hello There

Today we welcome Angelo D’Andre to the world.  Today my sister gave birth to the one who makes her Mommy.

Angelo D'Andre
January 17, 2011
5:32 AM {MST}
six pounds, 13.4 ounces
19 3/4 inches

It seems so surreal that my sister, who is eight years younger than I am, is a mother now.  Gone are the days of watching a certain purple dinosaur all day because she was obsessed with him.  Gone are the days of her answering only to Abby because she decided that was going to be her name.  Gone are the days of her streaking through the house because she forgot something very important that she needed to tell our dad.  She usually remembered while taking her bath.  That little fireball grew into a beautiful young woman, who is just as opinionated.  She has made some tough decisions in her life, like joining the military, but we are so proud of the woman that she’s become.

Today she begins a new journey in life, that of motherhood.  I hope she finds as much joy in Angelo as Micah has given me.
