Baby News!!

No! Not Me! Wow, that would be something huh??

My cousin Angel and her husband Brent adopted a baby girl! They have been married since 2000 and have been trying to get pregnant for at least 5 years or more. They decided to try the adoption process.

Things were not going well for them and they were discouraged. They decided to go through an attorney that my Aunt knows. Well, I'm not sure on the details but I do know a teenager was giving birth on Saturday and on Friday, they were informed they could adopt this unborn baby! So they took her home yesterday!

Her name is Elise Marie and she weighed 6 lbs 1 oz. I'm so happy for them! Here are some pictures I pulled off their facebook!

This is now the second baby cousin I have that was born this year that was named Elise! They are from different sides of my family. The first was Elise Claire which was born in April and was posted in her kitty costume in yesterday's post. She is about the cutest baby EVER!

Now I have Elise Marie born Oct. 30th. She is currently the cutest newborn baby cousin I have right now! I don't play favorites! They are ALL my favorites!

And in all my excitement, I have forgotten to post my weigh in results from last Saturday. I lost 1.2 lbs! So excited! Especially because I haven't been working the plan as good as I want to and this week I won't be able to exercise as much as normal. Need to make sure I gain control of my eating before things get out of control.


  1. Beautiful baby! Congratulations to the new Mom and Dad!

    And congratulations on the loss at the scale, Amanda! Sometimes, it's working and you don't even realize it. You did great!

  2. Hey congratulations on the new addition to the family. Photos are really misleading though. Sure babies look cute in them, but they don't really capture the crying, mess and sleepless nights :p

    What a lovely early Christmas present eh? :)

  3. Thanks guys! And yes Mark...definitely do not capture all that "joy" you mentioned! lol

    I'm with Mark on that one. Photos also don't show the scared looks when you get home and you don't know what to do with a baby. Class never told you what to do when you got home.

  5. Congratulations, how exciting!
