Finally, a free moment

I finally have a free moment to add a little update; the little one is sleeping and our oldest daughter is having a Grammy & Grampa sleep over weekend. We've been home for almost 1 week now, and life has been hectic and chaotic since we left last Thursday morning.

After a relativly short labor with minor complications, our little girl arrived at 6:57pm via c-section. She was 9lbs 2 oz and 20.5 inches. We weren't planning on a c-section, but knew that there was a strong possibility.

It just meant a little longer hospital stay and a longer recovery, but both of those are such small things compared to the big picture. We're so blessed having our 2 little girls.

I'm finally feeling better and able to move around much easier, and have a bit more energy. (...notice the non-brushed hair of a 2 year old and the scattered toys...just one of the many things mommy didn't get around to on that day...)The first week was definately a challenge with the numerous appointments we had to be at and the wonderful winter weather that decided to fall.

Hopefully I'll be able to get a small newborn session in with miss Grace while Anna's away this weekend, but if not, maybe I'll at least be able to get a few shots to post here.

Thank you to all our friends and family that have left messages, dropped by for visits, checked in on us and kept us in your prayers. Lots of love & hugs!
