Deja Boo!

There's a new kid in town and her name is Alice Catherine.  She was born at 2:19 a.m. on October 31, which makes her our little Halloween baby.  She weighed in at 7 pounds and 13 ounces, just like her big sister Olivia, but she's about 3/4 of an inch shorter.

Here she is right after birth and a bath. 

And here she is about 12 hours old.

Grammy got to hold her and rock her for a long time.  I'd forgotten just how sweet a newborn is.

And here is big sister Olivia getting her first look at her new baby sister.  The only thing that lured her away from the hospital was trick or treating. 

And here she is right before heading out to gather her loot.  I stayed at the house and handed out candy.  We had quite a crowd.  I'd forgotten how much fun Halloween is.  I don't get trick or treaters at my apartment.  :-(
And just for the sake of comparison, here's a photo of Olivia as a newborn.  I think there's a resemblance.  One thing's for sure:  my son and daughter-in-law sure do make beautiful babies.
