Six Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed!……



Big sister Averi loves her new baby; Poppa with the tiny bundle.

A little after 3 pm, Amelie Belle was born to Rocky and Jovan Rhoades (and big sister, Averi) weighing in at 8 pounds, 13 ounces, 20 1/2 inches long.  She is absolutely gorgeous!  Gorgeous!  And her name is the French version of Emily, pronounced ah’-ma-lee, as in awwww….so cute! 

Amelie is about an hour old in this photo.  Cute family, yes?

I now have 6 grandbebes!  I am blessed!

Baby and mommy are doing well.  Daddy is tired, but happy and Averi seems unfazed by everything, just happy for the huge party going on at the hospital because between the Rhoades-Powers-Kelleys and the DiPerna-Carter-Roberson clans: Platte Valley Hospital thinks the Osmonds have descended!  Amelie was greatly anticipated and is loved by bunches of people.  With as many flashes going off as there were all afternoon, you’d have thought Brad and Angelina just showed up on the red carpet.  Good times!


See?  Lots of us!  I am mesmerized!


A little fun and frolic in the waiting room that we sort of took over.  Tea parties, bingo, Legos, video and computer games and snacks!

We L O V E  her!  This little Amelie Belle
