Welcome to the Family Amelia!

On 10/3/11 we welcomed a new member to our family, Amelia Ann Shepard. The pregnancy was certainly not the same as carrying her big sister, Laina but now that we've had a little time to get to know her I know that she is very different from Laina. Amelia is 8 weeks old now and smiling away the days. She is a great baby that will just sit in her chair patiently and look around as I try to keep up with daily life of being a mom of 2 kids. I'm so glad to have her with us and I'm looking forward to all the memories we'll create with our two beautiful little girls. Here's a few photos from the first few weeks with our little "Mia" (Laina's nickname that we've now adopted).
