Baby Sister Arrives!

Ah yes, the countdown is now over, our little papoose is here! Question is, was it a countdown for the baby, or the name? One would wonder after all the hassle we got about not deciding on a name before the big day.

Baby Sister was born 10:43 a.m. on January 19. She was (I say was because we all know how fast wee babies grow) 19 1/2 inches long, and weighed 7 pounds 10 ounces. She's a beauty!

As for her name, drum roll please...

Let me introduce you to Laurel Ann.

It's amazing that at just a few days old, we can tell how different she is from her older brother. Ian could care less about eating in the beginning (a much different story now), Laurel could eat ALL DAY! This is a scary thing when you're breastfeeding, YIKES! She's a little piggy, she even snorts to let us know she means business. Ian is a fairly mellow guy, Laurel is quite, how should I put it, feisty. Gotta love a spirited girl! She knows what she wants and is determined to get it. Of course at this stage of the game, it's pretty much just eating.
