Sarah was MIA

I'm sorry that I've been MIA for the past couple days. It was for a good cause, I promise. I drove home to Ohio on Sunday to await the birth of my little niece/nephew. I officially became an aunt to a little girl (!!!!) on Tuesday! Her name is

Luisa Irene Lamb

Normally, I think new borns aren't really that cute (as in they're ugly) because they're all wrinkly and I can't really distinguish any of their facial features because they're all scrunched up. And I also hate when people say "Oh, she looks just like (insert parent's name here)..." Really? You can tell that this squishy, scrunchy, day old baby looks exactly like so-and-so? When I have kids, please don't tell me who the baby looks like until it's at least a month old. Thanks.

Anyways, Luisa the prettiest new born I've ever laid on. Take a look for yourself:

Imma proud auntie : )
baby Lu!
My sister and brother-in-law asked me to be in the delivery room to take pictures while the baby was being born. It was such an honor for me to be a witness of Luisa's birth. This was the first time I have seen a baby be born (in real life...not videos) and I loved every minute of it. It was such an amazing day and when little Luisa came out, I cried. Seriously. 

I want a baby.


  1. She is adorable! :) Congrats proud Auntie Sarah :)

  2. I love love love it. Praise God for new life! Blessings to Dave and Tiff and Baby Lu. <3

  3. A beautiful name for a beautiful baby. Congrats to all! Wonderful that she was born before you guys left for Africa.

  4. Love this so much!! She is beautiful and you will be such a sweet auntie!

  5. She is precious! Congratulations!

  6. Also, I enjoy that due to her initials, in addition to calling her Lu or LuLu, could call her Lil or Lily.

  7. Or Lil Lamb. As in mary had a.

    Sorry, I have a problem with names.

  8. Thanks Jeana and Kels!

    Hahaha, Becky!! Want to know something else funny? David's mom's name is MaryAnn. So it really is Mary had a little lamb. And on TOP of that--my bro-in-law's name is David. As in, David the shepherd boy. Funny, huh?
