Everyday Reading: And then there were Four

December 10, 2012

And then there were Four

After a delayed induction on Friday morning, we returned to the hospital on Friday afternoon and had this darling little girl at 5:55 p.m.

She shocked us all by weighing in at 8lbs, 12oz.

We love her to pieces, and are so happy to all be home together. 






And I am not pregnant anymore.

  26. Congratulations! She is gorgeous. And, having three kids of varying sizes, I'm a firm believer that babies with a little more meat on them sleep better earlier. Hope it's true for you!

  27. YAY! CONGRATS! That is so awesome and she is too lovely. I love all of her hair. My baby girl also surprised us by topping out at almost 9 pounds. Whew. I love your ending sentence. After both of my babies, once I realized I was no longer pregnant, I busted out into massive loads of tears. Yeah, I guess I don't like bring pregnant much. But who would when they have to go 42 weeks? Congrats again ~ hope the next few weeks go smoothly and you're able to rest. Look forward to seeing this little munchkin grow....
