Addison Lane

Congratulations to Brian and Kara, proud parents of little Addison Lane Ickler! She's 4 lb, 5 oz, and 16" from tip to tail. In what is surely a taste of teenage rebellion to come, Addison decided that she couldn't wait until Uncle Steve and Aunt Karen came back from their trip down under so she popped out of the oven seven weeks early. She tried to shimmy out backward, cord first, but the nice doctors thought that wasn't such a good idea and took her out by means of emergency C-section. I went to visit mom and baby in the hospital today at lunch. Kara and I scrubbed up and then went into the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) to say hello. Addison is pinkish yellow with blonde hair, a pink cap and the littlest fingernails I've ever seen. She squeaks and wriggles and makes adorable sneers. And if you're lucky, she'll flutter her eyes open for a second and flash you her baby blues. Welcome to the world little girl! I can't wait to watch you grow up!

Awwww! Welcome Addison! Please give your poor mom a break and don't keep her up too late, now!
