Madison has a new cousin!

Meet Gabriella Sophia Dasher. She was born on July 14th and weighed 7lbs 5oz she was 20 1/2 inches. Gabriella is the daughter of my husbands brother Matt and his wife Carolina. We finally got to go see her yesterday. We waited till she got home and got settled in before we went to visit because we still remember how it is to have a new baby and being tired and tons of people dropping by. Madison and I had so much fun shopping for the perfect gift for baby Gabby. We ended up getting her a toy to hang from her carrier and a little frog teether. Madison picked out a balloon that looked like a onesie that said BABY on the front. When my husband came home from work, we loaded up and went for our first visit. Madison was really excited about meeting the new baby. When Matt opened the door he looked like he had given birth! He has good reason for looking so tired, poor Gabby has yellow Jaundice and they have had to take her back and forth to the doctor every day, which is about an hour and a half drive one way. She has to have her little heel pricked everyday and is having to sleep on a light when she is not eating or being changed. Carolina is also not feeling well  and had taken something for pain and was laying down while we were there.Gabby was asleep on the light when we got there so Madison and I sat beside her and rubbed her little head the whole time we were there. She is so tiny and it is hard for me to believe that Madison was ever that little. Madison wanted to hold her so bad and so did I. Maybe next time we visit we will be able to hold her. Madison in the mean time is already planning future play dates for her and Gabby.
