I'm a REAL Aunt!!!

So the title was not made to offend my in-laws. I love all 23 nieces and nephews on Steve's side, but I wasn't around when any of them were born. They were already part of the family by the time I joined. So... Aubrey finally had her baby!!! Avery Lynn Glover was born on March 30, 2010 (my great-grandpa "Papa G"s birthday) at about 3:00 pm. She weighed 7 pounds and 5 ounces and was 18 inches long. She's beautiful! Aubrey was in labor for 18 hours and wasn't progressing so they finally all decided that a C-section was the best move. Kinda crappy that she had to wait 18 hours before that decision was made. It was an amazing experience to be able to have been there with her. Of course I wasn't in the operating room, but I was right outside. Baby, mom and dad are all doing well. They got home on Saturday and are adjusting well. Avery had a rough night on Saturday, but has been doing better since. I absolutely LOVE her! Steve keeps reminding me that she's not our child. Ha ha... I spoil her already, but I'm trying to not get too carried away. I'll have a child of my own someday and I don't want him/her to feel as if I love Avery more! (This is not an "I'm Pregnant" announcement). Thought some people might enjoy some pics.

She's adored by all...
Remember how long I was at the hospital too? Please excuse the GREASE....

The next night, my friend Amie and I went to the Michael Buble concert. Thanks to Amie's mom for bailing on her, I got to go. He was great and so incredibly talented. Thanks Amie!
