Baby monkey what a momentous couple of days it has been!! Your Auntie Melissa welcomed your TKN cousin and future best friend forever, into the world yesterday (October 14, 2011)!! At 6:13 pm after a relatively short day of laboring, baby Aubrey made her appearance at 7lbs 2oz and 20in long! She is absolutely beautiful…I mean stunning! Her and your auntie are doing fabulously and I’m so excited for the both of them. I’m even more excited for you two girls to be reunited on the outside. You see, you already know your cousin Aubrey! You guys have met several times while you were baking 😀 pretty cool, huh??
Your auntie and I have a pretty special bond…you see…we both lost our first babies and you and Aubrey both have little angel siblings that came before you. It was your auntie Melissa who checked in on mommy to make sure she was okay and made sure that I didn’t slip into a very deep dark place. She was there to cry with, laugh with, just listen to mommy go through the emotions of sadness and anger and finally healing. No one understood exactly how I was feeling, like she did. She had been there too. We supported one another and got through that really dark time. When we were both ready to try again…as luck would have it…our cycles were exactly in sync! What are the chances?? And, I guess you now know why you and your cousin are exactly 4 weeks apart! 😀
You and cousin Aubrey are soul mates and you’ll always share that connection that your mommies share! I love that. Take a look at some of your earliest meetings…Auntie Melissa was there when we found out that you were a GIRL!!! The 4 of us in Grandma Em’s backyard (daddies were there too…though not pictured) Auntie Melissa bought us matching necklaces that read “BF, 2 peas in a pod” because that’s what you two are! Beautiful little soul mate peas! We’ve agreed to use these little charms in our newborn pictures of you girls. I think we’ll also get pics of you guys with these necklaces as you both grow up. Swoon. And of course, they were there for your very first party! Your baby shower that your Grandma organized in your honor!
Because Auntie and cousin Aubrey live about 6 hours away we don’t get to see them that often, but we will get you two girls together as often as we can…promise!! It’s crazy to think the next picture to add to this little album will be the two of you precious girls on the outside! Aaaah!
In any case my sweet souvenir…yesterday was a great day and your cousin/BFF made it to the other side! Guess that means you’re next…but not for a few more weeks, okay? Okay. Love you sweet girl!!
