Congratulations Erich & Naomi!...and Konrad too!

Ok, so I know I have been blogging about babies a lot lately but I am just SO excited to announce the arrival of the newest member of our family! Jon's sister and brother-in-law had a BABY GIRL this morning! We're an Aunt and Uncle again....and thrilled to pieces! Her name is Ava Indiana Petkau and was born at 8:17am. She's 6lbs. 9oz. and 19 inches long and absolutely ADORABLE!! Her big brother Konrad was apparently ecstatic about his new sister and even offered her his McDonald's happy meal :) Naomi had to explain that baby Ava had to have milk and his response was "!" What a cutie!
Ava is doing well, as is Naomi and they were actually already going to be taking her home tonight. They had to share a room with another lady and were finding it too noisy to get any rest, so after having the doctor give the A-OK, they were going to be taking Ava home. Hopefullly they'll get a good night's sleep and be ready to tackle the "parenting" thing again! Should be fun...a new little baby and a very energetic toddler!
Welp, we love you guys and are truly so blessed to have such a wonderful niece and nephew...can't wait to spoil Ava rotten!

This is Jon's sister Naomi and their new little bundle of joy!

Ava Indiana Petkau...welcome to the family! We love you so much already!

I do LOVE being an Auntie!

Here we are...the very proud Auntie and Uncle!
