Welcome to Earth!

Great news travels fast in the email/facebook world, Justin sent 1 email to our parents to be forwarded to family… and then when we got home, we had about 20 new messages from all ya’ll… It was a fun welcome home! But news is apparently a little slower in my blogging world. But anyway, guess who decided to make an early appearance…

This little girl of ours,

And WOW is she fun!
I will write more when I have another hand free…
For now she was born Wednesday night, and weighted 8 lbs 5 oz and was a little over 20 inches long. She has already changed so much, but here are a few pics to keep you satisfied, until I get more than… 6 hours of sleep in a 36 hour period.
Here she is after happy hour in boob land.
Check out that double. And that inch long chocolate brown hair.
According to Grandma and Grandpa, Daddy has a miniature version of himself in his daughter.
But don’t worry, Mommy gave her a tiny momento of herself, the space between her first two toes… a very useful feature, I might add!
Our first photo session after her bath.

Nap time with mommy this morning. It is hard for mommy to sleep when she just wants to look at the little faces this princess makes while she sleeps.

Daddy time at the hospital, and Mommy taking the little present home from the hospital.
Flowers from G and G and Justin’s brothers and sisters.

Getting a shot with eyes open is not easy quite yet. They are really only open from 12:00 am to 5:00 am…. and the camera crews aren’t around.
The thinker.
More to come. . .
