Dear Run With Scissors Readers,
Hi there :)
  It's me, Amelia!!!
I just wanted to pop in and tell you all that I love you all so much.
I also wanted to thank all of you for your love and support of my little family during my  process. 
I am home from the hospital now and I am in love with my new house and especially my new room!!
Catalina and I are already best friends.  
She likes to sleep right next to my bassinet.  She takes good care of me.
My mommy and daddy take such great care of me too!!  They love that I am such a good eater and sleeper and snuggler.
I love snuggling with them.
They also like to give me lots of kisses on my chubby cheeks :)
In fact, I can't wait until I can show my face around here because word is...I'm pretty much the cutest baby out there.
When it's time, there will be lots of photos to share.  
My mommy and daddy are snapping photos ALL OF THE TIME.
Alright, it's time for me to eat again so I better sign out.
I love you!!

P.S.  My mommy wanted me to tell you that she will have my birth story posted sometime early next week!  She has been so busy loving on me :)
