Andrew Ellis James Meerman

As promised, here are pictures of our new nephew, Andrew, with his cousin, Ava, Aunt Katie, Uncle Aaron, and Mommy and Daddy.  He is still doing great and we got to see him again last Friday where Aunt Katie got to love on him lots!

Miscellaneous Pictures

Just wanted to post some pictures from the last month or so from our family.  Several of the pictures are from Bounce Party, which we went to with my whole family.  We had such a blast together.  Kylie was so fearless climbing up the huge slides!  Aaron and I took aim at each other in the gauntlet pit but Aaron was able to knock me over quite quickly!  Also are some new pictures of Ava Grace and her beautiful smile!

IT'S A BOY!!!!

We are a proud aunt and uncle to a beautiful baby nephew!!  Our sister, Amanda, and her husband, Matt, welcomed their first baby, Andrew Ellis James Meerman, on Saturday at 7:09 p.m.  He weighed in at 8 pounds, 11 ounces and was 20 inches long.  Ava and I were at the hospital all day Saturday, Aaron was there for most of the day but had to go home and stay with Kylie after Amy had to leave.  (She was babysitting for us.)  He is so beautiful and absolutely perfect and we are so excited that he is finally here.  I have pictures of him but haven't downloaded them yet so I will try to do that sometime this week and post them as soon as possible.  Congratulations to Matt and Amanda and we can't wait to watch Drew grow up!  

Ava had her two month check up on Thursday and she is 10 pounds and 9 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long.  Her new cousin, Drew, isn't that much smaller than her and they are 9 weeks apart in age!  :)  Ava is in the 3rd percentile for her height and 50th percentile for her weight.  She also got shots which was so traumatic for Mommy!  I was in tears!  :(  Ava was a trooper and I think that is the first time she has really cried.  She is doing well after the shots.
