Here she is!
Addison Jaclyn Smethurst
Born: September 18th at 12:37 am
Weighing: 7 lbs. 9 oz. and 21 inches long.
My cousin Alysha just had her second baby! A little baby girl! I am so excited for her to join me in the "parents with two kids" club!
Alysha and I go way way back... pretty much to the day she was born!
She was the cousin closet to me in age which made us super close as we were growing up.
When it came time for me to pick my bridesmaids for my wedding day I remember telling Loren... "Well, I have 3 sisters and I have to have all of them standing with me, but I have to have Alysha too! She is like my 4th sister."
And that still stands true to this day!
We have laughed together, cried together, acted out plays together, had sleep overs together, played Barbie's together, had fights where we probably never wanted to speak to one another, sang and danced to Dirty Dancing together, bit and hit one another, stood by each other on our wedding days, exchanged labor stories, and even lived together on a couple occasions of our lives! Oh, and who could forget our 5 mile bike ride to Target just to buy the movie Clueless! lol - You'll have to ask Alysha to tell you that story! ;)
Even though Alysha is my cousin she is probably my longest running "friend." We're family, so I guess we can't get away from each other!
So with all that said.... now you know why I am so excited for her and the new addition to her family!
Congratulations Alysha, Nick, Landon, and Lucy!
We are so excited to watch Addison grow into the little girl God has planned for her to be!
We absolutely LOVE her!
And now for your viewing pleasure, here is Addison's first blog debut...
Here is big brother Landon! He is so happy to have a new baby sister! Or... maybe he is just excited to have that sucker.
Here they are... the proud Mommy and Daddy!
Loren and I just couldn't get enough of her!
Here's Greta asking Addison if she'd like to borrow her Nuk?!
And little Tuck... he was too busy hanging out with Nick to care about a new baby.
Isn't she just the cutest?!?!
I hope you all enjoyed getting to meet this little one!
Remember to keep the Smethurst family in your prayers as they go home and try to adjust to their new life, schedule, and lack of sleep!
Good Luck Alysha and Nick! Those 3:00 am feedings are a little rough at first! :)
