I'm an Aunt...Again!

I'm very excited to announce my newest nephew, Michael Slaten! {Slaten is his middle name, which he shares with my Papaw, his great-grandfather.}

{Yes, that's me. Don't judge. I had a long day at work and a 3 hour drive. I am not looking my best.}

Michael arrived around 6:30 last night. I rushed from work to get home and change and get to the hospital in Franklin, TN, {2.5 hours from my house} and just barely missed him arriving--by about 10 minutes. However, they tell me that the nurses cleaned him up in the room, so I didn't actually miss seeing anything, thank goodness. I don't even want to go into the stupid rush hour traffic I had to put up with.

This is my sister, Ginny, and Michael's big brother, Noah. Doesn't she look amazing? This is literally like 45 minutes after birth. I swear, she always has the easiest labor.

This is Michael's very excited cousin Brady. He turns 3 today, so they almost shared a birthday! I had to include this photo because he is so insanely cute. He loves his Spiderman costume, as you might have guessed. I can only assume that someone, at some point, told him that Michael had been in my sister's belly because several times last night he said, "I don't want Michael in my belly." It was seriously the cutest thing ever. I could just squeeze the stuffing out of him!

This is definitely my favorite photo of the night. No description necessary. Aren't they a sweet little family?

Welcome to the world, Michael! We love you!
