Weighing 7 pounds, 11 ounces, and measuring 20 inches long, Savannah arrived at 7:00 P.M. on February 9, 2011.
Both Becca and Savannah are doing well, and we got to go over and see them last night, each getting a quick turn to hold our new little niece. :-)
Now, can a proud aunt post too many pictures of her first niece?! Hopefully not, because here comes quite the flood of them! :-)
We liked the note they had on the board.
This is what we found upon our arrival at the hospital.
Savannah Rose Barta
Now you can watch us all adore our little sister/niece/granddaughter. :-)
Conner meets his little sister.
Nobody wants to see her...really! :-)
Aunt Val takes her turn
Aunt Lisa's turn
Uncle Zach's turn
Aunt Bethy's turn
Uncle David's turn
Aunt "Mimmery's" turn
You can tell she was upset to have an opportunity to hold her. :-)
Aunt "Hy-Vee's" turn
I always forget how tiny newborns are!
Look! She opened her eyes!
Nana "Moo-er's" turn
Papa "Moo-er's" turn
Nana Barta's turn
Papa Barta did get a turn too, we just don't seem to have a picture.
The many faces of Savannah Rose
There's nothing quite like babies' feet. :-)
The boys check on Mommy and cuddle with her.
Willie didn't like Mommy being in the hospital bed, but he cuddled nicely with her for quite a while.
Conner enjoyed looking at some of the books in between watching his little sister and giving her kisses.
Unfortunately, we don't seem to have gotten any pictures of the boys giving baby sister kisses (though I think Jared did), but it was very, very sweet.
The following pictures are from today when Nana and Papa Mueller took Savannah's brothers over to see her again before nap time came around.
Look at that! We knew Becca wouldn't take very long to get stuff into her hair!
Willie and Conner got to hold little Savannah today when they were there with just Nana and Papa Mueller and there was much less commotion. Sorry, we don't have any pictures. They didn't exactly hold on to her long enough for Nana to snap them.
She looks quite pensive here.
Willie gets some Mommy time .
Conner gets some Mommy time too.
Look! Daddy gets to hold her too! :-)
I believe I can honestly say that I have done my very best to introduce my niece to all of you. Wasn't it a pleasure to make her acquaintance? :-)
