Look who made her debut

When I woke up last Thursday morning, I had a bunch of things planned for Veteran's Day, none of which sadly had to do with veterans. But all my plans quickly went out the window as Garth told me that Dave had called and said that he and Raquel were at the hospital having the baby!

At 8:04 little Millie Kate made her debut weighing 6 pounds 8 ounces and was 19 inches long. Unfortunately my camera wasn't working either of the days that Raquel was in the hospital, so there pictures were taken shortly after they got home.

Don't you love those fat little cheeks and all the dark hair? She is taking after her mom in those areas, although Raquel had even more hair on top that stuck straight up.
She has already won a spot in Garth's heart.
Millie had lost 7 ounces by the time she came home yesterday and you can tell here just how tiny she is. She is pretty strong though and does pretty well at holding up her head.
Look at that little angel.
Preston held her like she was made of glass. He's not too comfortable with newborns yet.
We are SO glad that we have this new addition to our family and that both mommy and baby are healthy.
