Oh baby! Anna Cross is born!

July 2, 2009, a little after noon, Anna Cross was born! Many were eagerly awaiting her arrival.

Daddy had been deployed and got home just in time to be there when his beautiful daughter was born! Anna Cross joins her cousin Grady into a big, loving family and a huge group of friends! Here's the proud daddy and mama after Anna Cross made her grand appearance! Aunt Emily was like me and was wishing she could be there.

Aunt Mary Grace holding her new nephew! She hates having her picture taken, but for this occasion.....well she sacrificed! Grandpa is grinning in the background. This is grandchild number 2 and twins are expected in the not so far future from Uncle Brian and Aunt Robin.

Yes, I'm a little jealous that my sister was there and not me! Let's just say she was my substitute!

Beautiful, tired mama holding her precious little girl! I heard she was quite the trooper during labor.

Sweet, sleeping Anna Cross. She had a long day too!

Welcome, little girl! A lot of people love you!
