She's Here!

We're so happy to anounce Piper's arrival!

Piper was born October 29th at 2:31 am.

She weighed in at 7 lbs, 1 oz.

She was 20 inches long (beating her brother in length by 1/2 an inch).

I can't say enough about how much I LOVED my labor this time. 
I was in control, calm, and not afraid. 

Here's a photo dump from the last week in no particular order ...

When Paxton met his new sister, she gave him a toy!

Totally cashed out.
By the way, I'm kinda famous for saying, "I'm not really into pink."
I stand corrected friend.
I stand corrected.

Sleeping in the hospital.

Right after I gave birth and they cleaned her off a bit.

Heading home for the first time!

Paxton helping feed Piper with Grandma.

Giving sister some kisses.

Once again, CLEARLY not into pink.

This melts my heart.

My whole heart, in one picture. 

In the hospital, sucking on daddy's thumb.
Totally sanitary I'm SURE of it.

Cuddles with my baby home now that we're home!

Meeting Uncle Danny for the first time.

March 6

Chair. The same chair my mama rocked me in when I was a baby. It's terribly uncomfortable. I truly have no idea how she did it. I'll still never get rid of it.

Lucky. Amazing son, and fun neighbors that we love.

I made this! Never trust a toddler when he's quiet. Lesson: learned.
