She's Here.

Meet Hazel Jane. She arrived on Monday August 8th. After having contractions for an entire sleepless night, we arrived at the hospital around 10:30 am and she made her debut at 12:58 pm. She was definitely ready, and whether we were ready or not, we are so thrilled she's here. 


 This is probably going to remain one of my favorite pictures that will ever be taken. I still get choked up thinking about the feeling I had when I could see my sweet little E's face waiting outside the door to come in. I felt so much joy knowing that we were now a family of 4, and thinking about what an incredibly sweet brother my little girl has.

 

 

 So far E has been a total champ about welcoming home his "sissy" (a name by which he came up with all on his own) and she is bringing a tremendous amount of calm and peace to our home. (believe it or not!) She is going to be a very sweet addition to our family. Thank you to our close friends and family for all the help and well wishes. Thank you to all of you for your continued support and sweet comments.

congratulations! You're right, girls do bring a sweetness with them into a family. Even though my little girl is feisty and a little tempermental, her older brothers are so sweet to her. That's something I never really saw in them until she came around! :)
