And now we are four

Four and a half years ago, our life changed in more ways that we could ever imagine when J made an early entry into our lives. J had grown into a smart, articulate, kind little girl who has been super excited for the last six months about the impending arrival of her new baby brother or sister.

Three weeks ago, our life changed again. Baby C arrived, again a bit earlier than anticipated.

here she is

We went in for a regular prenatal appointment and a few hours later, Baby C was here. She was a good size and her APGAR scores were both 9…one very happy, healthy little baby.

J had gone to Kelowna with her grandparents after Easter, so she was away when C arrived, but the day we came home from the hospital, my mom and J arrived from Kelowna. J was so excited. You can see her big sister shirt in the picture below. She wore it every day for over a week (she thought it was never washed, but it did sneak a few baths in over that week).

j and c meet

J loves Baby C – she is constantly kissing her and hugging her. The first thing she does in the morning and when she comes home, is look for her little sister to say hello. And the last thing she does before she goes out or to bed is hug her sister and tell her she loves her.

Welcome Baby C! We’re all so happy you’re here!

What a week - Denmark, Ireland and Russia [part 1/5]

So, we brought a special bundle home on Monday which means I neglected our mailbox until today…and this week happened to be a happy mailbox week. I’ve split the cards into five posts because, well, there were a lot.
