It's a GIRL!

< whisper > hi.


yes, we had a baby a week ago today.  she's all pink and soft and full of funny little baby sounds and squeaks.  she's the tiniest of my three girls, still not up to 7 lbs yet, but she's nursing well and putting on weight.

and, oh, the faces this sweet girl makes.


she may never know what it is like to be put down... right now my mom is staying with me, my thirteen year old is on summer vacation, and Fidget is always angling for her turn as well.  Poor daddy hardly gets a chance.  that's what happens when a bundle of pure sweetness drops into your life.

I can't very well blog if I'm snuggling this all day.

She is nursing a lot during the day.  a LOT.  which is fine by me because she is taking big breaks from it at night and I'm actually getting more sleep than I ever expected at this point.  so we are all happy and pink and constantly saying things like 'she's just so CUTE' and 'OMG, I LOVE her' and 'we're so blessed!'

so you'll forgive me if the updates are slow around here, right?  or maybe it will just be pictures for a while.  unless you object, of course.  can you handle the cute??

Truly blessed are you and your family. Enjoy this time. And thank you for sharing your bundle of cuteness with us all!

She's just perfect, Chris. I know that my babies rarely knew what it was like to be put down. Joe would have to fight me for them.

Enjoy her.

I love those little scowly faces. :) I hope she keeps up the day nursing -- that's awesome! I'm just hoping my third nurses at all. I'm not up for the drama again.

I'm glad you all are enjoying her. She does look like the sweetest little thing.

Congratulations! What a beauty - especially for a newborn (my kids looked like blotchy wrinkled old men at that age).

Please don't go too overboard on the cute. I don't want to find myself having any stupid ideas about adding to my brood...
