Welcome Noah!!

My little sister Ellen recently gave birth to a beautiful and very big bouncing baby boy named Noah. He's 11 pounds and 2 ounces (5040 gms), ouch! Unfortunately I haven't been able to give him a cuddle yet as they live interstate, but it's been lovely seeing photos of him and the family. I was so happy to see some photos of him taken with the gifts I sent for Ellen's baby shower ....

Isn't he just so precious?!! Congratulations Elle, Regan & Ella!!
I cannot wait until I get to visit!!
