Alaina Rae

Alaina Rae Anderson joined our family on November 9th, 2012 at 12:56 PM, weighing 7 pounds, 2 ounces and was 20 3/4 inches long.  Alaina has been such a great baby.  I cannot believe how she can sleep through the noise of Ava all day, but she does.  She really only will cry when she needs something, which is a lot different experience than we had when Ava was an infant.  Really the only thing that has been difficult is how hard Ava is having with the adjustment of a new member added to the family, and Ava not being the only child that got all the attention.  Everyone says it will get easier with time...and I sure hope that starts to happen sooner than later.  Ava would not even touch her or want to be in the same room the first few days, and now she will pat Alaina's head and ask to hold her every once in awhile.  We just need to work on Ava not getting so upset when Alaina starts to cry. 
Alaina is a great addition to our family.  We love her so much and can tell that she will bring a great amount of joy to all of our lives.
