She’s here! A bundle of joy

Hello everyone!

I am back and overjoyed to announce the arrival of our daughter Holly on 11/9/15 at 11:45 p.m. Holly weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces and was 19.5 inches tall. It was a long 17-hour labor but there were no complications and both Holly, me, and her daddy are happy and healthy!


I plan to take it easy on the blogging front for my maternity leave through January but I may pop in here and there with some random ideas (for instance, some of my friends have requested a top 5 things you need in the first few weeks with baby. That sounds fun!).

I hope you all have a holly jolly holiday season <3

    Congratulations! You look so great! Holly is absolutely precious and hopefully she’s not keeping you up all night. Everything is new right now but your life will settle into a routine soon. We were caring for our newest granddaughter when she was just 16 weeks old one day a week and it took a lot out of us. You forget what it was like to care for such a little one and how demanding they can be. Fortunately our granddaughter was not a crying baby and was easily soothed so we lucked out on that. Enjoy this time in your lives and have a very happy holiday. Take lots of pictures and video.
