New Baby is Here!!

The new Alvarez baby has arrived! She was born Nov. 7th at 3:27 ish am.  Which means Brook and I have been playing Mommy & Daddy for the last couple of days. VERY exhausted, and very rewarding.  I am so thankful to be able to help out Mindy and Dean while they are in the hospital enjoying their newest addition.  I have a whole new respect for parents and have already apologized to my mom for waking her up in the middle of the night for various reasons.  I can't believe this is baby #5 for them, but although at times the kiddos can be tough and wear you out, they are precious and makes me really look forward to being a mom and getting to pour my heart and soul into little ones.  Such a huge responsibility and blessing it will be.  Check out some pics of the precious new Baby "Mystery" as the kids have been calling her because they haven't picked a name yet. dsc013681
