We Are in Love
Thank you all so much for your notes and well wishes. We came home from the hospital yesterday but naturally it has taken me a while to get to the computer. Our newest darling is currently slumbering in Grandma’s arms. Poor Grandma had to wait all day for her turn—this little sister is much in demand, and there are many arms to hold her!
Everything went very well during and after the delivery, and we are so happy to have her home. She looks exactly like Rose, just as the sonogram indicated.
I am somewhat tortured by the whole blog alias thing—seems so strange not to be shouting her name from the blogtops! And really, I have no idea what to call her here. Jane picked her name (in honor of Jane of Lantern Hill) and Rose, Beanie, and Wonderboy all grew into theirs. I suppose we’ll just give the baby a little time to grow an alias of her own. Ah, the demands technology places upon mere infants these days…
Anyway, thanks so much to all who wrote me over the past few days. It has been lovely to sit down to all these warm and thoughtful notes. I wish I could show her off to you all in person!
She’s beautiful Melissa. Congratulations to you and your entire family. Welcome to the World little one:-)

Congratulations! What a beautiful Easter blessing… maybe a sweet alias for her could be… little lamb?
Get some rest and love that sweet baby!

Beautiful!I can’t wait to hear her alias. It’s like getting to choose a name twice, isn’t it?

Congratulations! What a beautiful little girl. What will be the first book read to her?

Congratulations! They are both such beautiful girls!

Congratulations! You have such a lovely family. Perhaps the latest edition could just be called Baby until her personality shows itself? Or perhaps one of her older siblings will come up with a catchy nickname for her?

What a joy and a priviledge to bring new life into the world. God bless you and your new arrival. Relax and don’t rush back to the computer too soon. Blogs will be here for a long time to come, babies grow up way too fast.
