Oh my gosh, you guys, I FINALLY have a moment to blog! After all the holiday hoopla, the travels, and well just trying to figure out life with a newborn...I have a moment! Quick Beth, take it and write without abandon. No proofing, No editing. Just write!
I realize that this announcement is coming ridiculously late but...
I want you to meet our little Chickadee,
Born on her due date just before Thanksgiving at 4:19am, Kristin surprised all of us at how healthy she was (and still is!). Kristin was born 9 lbs. 12 oz, 21" long. We all knew she was measuring big from the very beginning, but I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be delivering a 9 pound baby, let alone almost one who was almost 10!
I would love to take this time to write her birth story, but honestly I'm not sure I have the time. Kristin truly is a sweet baby, but we've been blessed with a sweet baby who is sweetest when held. And not just held, bounced, swayed, waltzed around the room...in fact, I'm sitting on an exercise ball now as I write this with my little bambino. Fortunately we had planned to wear our babies which helps tremendously to keep her content. But I didn't have a clue what kind of toll my baby's fussiness would have on my heart, mind and body.
All that being said, I am blessed. WE are blessed. Our baby is healthy. Our baby is strong. She is alive and well (and reminds us of this often ;) Until I have a good half day to document her birth, I will simply share some photos. Our little Kristin over the past (almost) 2 months.
