So Mommy had good intentions of getting some pictures posted yesterday but it was a busy, busy day! Kitt and Garet are proud to introduce you to our new baby sister, Maryanne who we will call Ryan. We haven’t met her yet but Mommy, Daddy, Granny and Poppy all tell us she is beautiful and huge! She was born at 8:23AM on May 14 weighing 9 pounds, 7 ounces and 21 3/4 inches long. Mommy was a bit of a celebrity around here as so many people remembered her from last time. Ryan is doing great and even slept in the nursery last night for almost 7 hours. Mommy is doing well, too, but they will stay at the hospital until Thursday. So there are a few pictures below but a whole lot more on this Snapfish page.
Dear Sweet Ryan-
You have no idea what joy your arrival brings to Mommy. I am so glad to have you in my arms and in this world. So many people prayed for you while you were in my tummy and prayed for your safe arrival. While I will miss feeling you move around in my tummy and having you all to myself, I can confidently say I have brought you into a world of people that love you and will protect you from harm as best they can. You have already met several of those people even on your first day of life but will meet so many more as the days progress. I will always love you, protect you (as best I can) and be there for you. I love you with all my heart and cannot wait to see what this world and this life have in store for you.
Congratulations to the whole family! Ryan is as beautiful as her sisters! Brittany, you look so happy and well. Your letter to Ryan was beyond touching. Ryan is indeed a very lucky girl to be born into a family with so much love. Congratulations again! Nicole (Aunt Kristen’s friend)
