And just like that we’re a family of 6!
Quick post to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Rose Helena! (As in Hel-en-a, not Hel-ay-na. We’ve had a few people ask, so I thought I would clarify.) Birth story to come at a later date, don’t you worry 😉 haha
Her siblings are proud as punch! Marcus and Clara (especially Clara) love to hold her and will sit on the couch upwards of an hour without a request to have their arms relieved.
Clara is generous enough to let me hold “her baby Rose” when Rosie needs to nurse or have a diaper change.
Lewis requests to hold her, too, but after a of couple minutes (seconds?) he wants to carry her (oh my!) over to her rocket ship; aka rocking chair.
In short, she is loved to the point of smothering.
We are settling in well, but I would be lying if I didn’t say I was nervous for Adam to go back to work on Tuesday. I have plans of recruiting my teenage sister to come and help me with the kids, and then to maybe ship the older kids off for a night or two at my parent’s place. We shall see…
