welcome, little one

We were thrilled to welcome Sweet Pea into the world on Sunday, August 7, 2011 at 3:45 a.m. after what was my quickest and least difficult labor yet! I'm still finding more new reasons for thanksgiving as I review the event in my memory.

She weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces and was 20 1/4 inches long.

We are all charmed and find her adorably delightful.

Little Man says:
"I'm glad I have a sister!"
"I love my sister, [Sweet Pea]"
"Look at her tiny toes!" (or nose, or fingernails...)
"Please may I hold my sister?"

Brother says:
"Touch! "Touch it!"
(He's still getting a grasp on pronouns.)
"She's movin'!"
"Pet head!"
"Hi! Hi! Hi!"

Since arriving home yesterday morning, we have been enjoying quiet time together as a family of five, beginning to become accustomed to a new way of life, and looking forward to the adventures ahead.
