At the end of the second week in April, our niece Adele Elizabeth was born. So after putting in one more week of work, we were off to Nebraska to meet our 1 week old niece!
Lola was co-pilot and made sure to give Ryan directions whenever he needed them.
After a quick stop in Sioux Falls Thursday night, we were on our way to Nebraska Friday morning.
Ahhhh- the Good Life!
Right when we arrived in Omaha, we saw Miss Adele just chillin' in her swing, and I couldn't believe that she was actually here. It felt so surreal! Ryan was first to hold her and was such a natural. As you can see here, he couldn't have been happier. He is one proud Uncle!
After Ryan had his turn, it was Auntie Ams that got to hold Adele next. And she was giving me all sorts of fun faces.
I think this is her "I'm not sure who you are, but since mom and dad are close by, I'll give you a shot" face.
The dogs were pretty well-behaved and were either happily playing outside or sitting in the breeze way watching us hold this tiny human.
Adele's room is a gorgeous shade of lilac decorated with pretty flowers and lots of good toys and books. I'm sure Uncle Ryan will be reading them to her often when he is in Omaha on business trips.
As you can see, Ryan is supervising the diaper change.
Once she was all changed, it was back in Auntie Ams' arms. Snug as a bug in a rug! With one arm out of course.
Since the doggies were being so nice, we decided to introduce Lola to Adele. She was quite curious as to what Ryan was holding in his arms and did a good job of sitting and staying while Ryan crouched down for the meet n greet.
Lola did a very good job. And was on her best behavior while Adele was near.
After spending all morning and afternoon with baby Adele it was time to head to Columbus. With one last try of the Boppie, Ryan had some good snuggle time.
Baby Adele it was so great to meet you, we love you and can't wait to see you again soon!
