She's Here!!!

14 months ago, we welcomed (via blog) the twins' very first cousin to the family. We are so excited to finally be able to welcome cousin #2 the same way! Day after day we anxiously waited for the call saying she was on her way and Sunday it finally came! By Sunday evening she was here!
As is tradition, we made a special welcome banner for her. The twins carefully colored for their new cousin!
Because we lived in MA, we didn't get to meet Cousin Cuppycake until she was 3 months old :( But now that we live less than an hour away, we got to meet Cousin D (better nickname to follow) less than 24 hours after she was born! In fact, Lucas and I were the FIRST auntie and uncle to hold her!!!! (sorry for the blurry pictures. I didn't want to use a flash, but didn't take the time to put my camera on the proper setting)
Proud Uncle
Proud Auntie
The twins, having never seen a baby that small, were slightly curious...but really not that interested. I know that will change, she just doesn't make enough noise or movement yet to hold their attention!
Cuppycake loving on her new sis, and giving her a hug.
A Family of Four!!!
Welcome to the family, Cousin D!! We love you!!!

P.S. When a new cousin is born we implement a "Cousin Week" where we don't post anything new for a week in order for the cousin to get full doting rights :) While it isn't unusual for me to not post for a week, I wanted family & friends to know so they didn't bother checking until next week. Perhaps, during this week, I can actually get something done since I won't be blogging...perhaps...

That is a great idea Kim but here I am looking for a new blog. This was a nice blog about our new addition. Thanks!! Hi Allie & Ry Guy. Nana loves you so much. It was fun playing with you at the pumpkin farm and the hospital. XO NANA

Wow! The twins really did a great job on that banner! ;)

Congrats to all the Miller clan - you are a mad, crazy, procreatin' bunch!
