Arrived

I had the most appropriate Mother's Day.

Around 10pm on Sunday, I delivered the loveliest baby girl.

Violet Caroline.


She was a nice 7 lbs and 9 oz and has the sweetest baby girl mouth. Delivery was uncomplicated and very agreeable. My doctor proclaimed that I should have three more babies since I am so good at delivering them.

Violet and I got home today, welcomed by two excited brothers. Jack is very helpful and Van is very curious. Wants to poke her eyes out and eat them. But we are careful to not let him do that.

We are enjoying her immensely.

Congratulations! There is nothing quite like bringing home a new baby! And nothing quite like a little girl after two boys. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE boys, (having two of my own) but there's just something about little girls. ;) Enjoy! And happy Mother's Day!

I feel bad for us (your cyber-stalkers aka followers)... we're going to miss you but you definitely have the most wonderful excuse ever to be away for a while - kiss those cute cheeks of your Violet for us (baby cheeks are delicious! :))

Beautiful baby! I love her name. Violet was on the short list for my last baby. Along with Frances. But we went with Amelia. I'd have 2 more girls just to use those names.

Joanna said...

What wonderful news! Sweet Violet is beautiful. I had a Sunday baby as well (2 years ago though) and thought that I couldn't have done anything more worshipful on the Sabbath day. I'm delighted that your labor and delivery went so well. Congratulations.

From Lilly:

Dear Whitney,

I love you. How is Violet doing? Violet is so cute. How's Jack and Van? Do they like their new sister?

Love,
Lilly

(p.s. I want to come see her. I have to come see her.)
