Amelia Maechler Short was born last night via c-section at 5:16PM. Her time of birth also happens to be my sister's birth date. How cool is that?!?
Maechler was my Grandma's maiden name, so Megan only thought it was fitting to use it as Amelia's middle.
Birth stats - 5lbs. 14oz., 18.5" long, and has a head full of black hair.
She seems to favor her daddy's looks and has the same "crinkle" on her ears. The new parents are so in love with their daughter, as am I:) I cannot wait to get up to St. Louis next week to take care of them all at home!
Hearing Amelia's cry over the phone literally melted my heart. It was almost as special as hearing Jackson's first sweet cry. Who know that the birth of your sister's baby could be so emotional?!? I mean with a face as precious as this, how could it not be!

|He already loves her too:)|
