Gabriella Nicole

I had a wonderful afternoon yesterday with my newborn niece, Gabriella Nicole DeLucas. 

She arrived at 4:47 am on the 4th of January.  She weighted 8 lbs 3 ozs and was 21 inches long. 

My brother and sister-in-law are taking care of Sophia while her mommy is in the hospital with Gabriella. So on my way to the hospital in Battle Creek, I first stopped at my brother's house to see her.  Its hard to believe that almost 14 months ago she was a tiny little thing like Gabriella is!!  Now she is starting to walk.

I got the hospital about noon, Jeni was just getting ready to feed Gabriella.  Then she was all mine!  Jeni did have a friend stop by so I had to share for a little while.  Then Gabriella and I sat in a rocking chair and read my nook while Jeni took a nap!  It was heavenly, I'm tearing up right now just thinking about it!!

She was kind enough to make a mess in her diaper for Uncle Bobbi to clean up!! Who knew something so tiny could make such a big mess!  Of course the nurse came in right as I was getting done. But then Gabriella proceeded to fill that diaper so the nurse had to change her again. While the nurse changed her she commented that Gabriella was really watching the TV. Yep, she's a Buller!!
