We are so excited to welcome Ella's newest baby cousin:
Ana Mercedes Coussirat
Ana made her debut January 21st at 2:30 pm weighing in at 6 lbs, 15 oz.
I was so happy to be there for the birth of my niece! In true form, Dan and Angie had to have a little bit of drama surrounding the birth, but nothing they couldn't handle. Angie went into labor unexpectedly on Christmas Day with Sofia, and with Ana Dan had a really bad case of the flu, making their first family photo quite memorable.
Sofia waited patiently for her baby sister with me and her Grandmother
And was so excited to see her Mommy and Daddy, and of course Wo0dy, Jesse, & Bullseye!
Earlier in the day I made a pit stop to the Disney store for Angie and Dan to get Sofia her "big sister" presents. The minute those were in her view, Sofia had bigger and better things to worry about than her baby sister. Although, the next day she took her big sister duties very seriously..
I was extremely proud of Angie for going through her first c-section like such a pro. She was alert, happy and up and about in no time. She is doing great - very proud and excited for her!
Tio Louis, Dan's mom Loretta, and I were all there to welcome the newest addition, making FIVE grandchildren for my dad and the fourth Granddaughter for Dan's mom. It's amazing how much our families have grown in the last few years.
I am such a proud Tia...I didn't want to let her go!
We are heading down to Houston soon so Ella and Uncle Jeff can meet Baby Ana. Angie and I are so excited to have "the girls" together and know that Ella and Ana will grow up to be the best of friends since they are only 6 months apart. And I know Matthew and Jakey will be great big boy cousins to all of them too. I can't wait until we can all be together.
So congratulations to Angie, Dan, and Sofia! And welcome to the world Ana Mercedes - you are so loved!
