Our new niece

This is Afton! She is Adelaide's little sister! She was born on June 23rd, 2012. You can't see it here but she looks a lot like Adelaide (or at least I think she does). 
The story of that day went kind of like this:
I was at work on Saturday and at about 3pm I was sent home. Yay! Adam and I went to the Arts Festival for a couple hours. Our former bishop (the guy that married us civilly) is a potter and we always go look at his work. Adam found a plaque that he wanted to give his mom. After we left, Adam asked if I wanted to go over to his parents so we could give his mom the gift. I said that would be great and Adam proceeded to call his mom but she didn't answer. So he called his dad and he told Adam that he was going to American Fork because Karena was in labor!! (!) Me being so excited, I asked if we could come along and his dad said sure. So we head to American Fork! We got there around 9:30 and waited and waited and waited! Ok we only waited for 2 hours but it seemed like FOREVER! I was so happy that Drew and Karena were ok that we were there and they even let us come up to see Afton. Adam was a little weary because Drew and Karena are both carriers of CF so it is a possibility that they may have a child with CF. Adam didn't want to risk getting her sick if she did so he waited in the lobby. Hopefully she doesn't end up with CF and we can spend more time with her! Once we got up to see her, Drew and Karena asked me where Adam was and I told him he wasn't sure if everyone is ok with him coming up. They said it was ok and as long as he wore a mask. So I went to get Adam and I was so happy that he was able to see her! I am so excited to see these little  girls grow up. I am also excited because my other niece is coming to Utah this week!
I love being an aunt! =)
