My baby girl finally made her appearance last Monday, August 30, on my dad's 80th birthday. I didn't even have to buy him a gift this year! We named her Rachel. She weighed 6 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 20.25" long. This is by far my smallest baby. Her brothers were 9-2 and 8-11, and I don't quite know what to do with someone so tiny.
Here she is with proud brother Nathan, who is in love with her. Every morning he asks me, "Mama, can I hold Rachel today?" To which I have to say, "Honey, you can hold her everyday for as long as she'll let you." Aww. He's such a sweet boy.
And her she is with middle brother Daniel. He loves her too but has too much energy to sit still for long and oogle his sister like my oldest.
I did end up having to be induced since she was 8 days late and hadn't put on any weight in 3 weeks. Oh well, life doesn't always go according to your plans, and we are both healthy. That's what counts.
Hooray, my replacement iron came on the Fed Ex truck yesterday! I've only to sew on the hook closure to my simple skirt started - when was is - two weeks ago? Maybe I'll get around to that today.
