Five days late, Ivy arrived early Saturday morning on February 4th. I was elated to find out she was a girl, even though I had a strong feeling throughout my pregnancy that was the case (including strong attachments to the color pink and odd purchases that could only be used for a girl). Her delivery start to finish was less than 2 hours and was a walk in the park compared to her older brother (minus the two attempts to get the epidural in correctly). Weighing in at 8lb 1oz and 19.5 inches long, she is a happy and healthy baby girl. In addition, one of the best gifts is that she is pretty much sleeping through the night already (I strongly attribute this to my use of formula from day one). However, she’s not such a great sleeper during the day…one of the reasons it has taken me so long to post these photos! My son could really care less about his little sis at this point, but every now and then I catch him watching her in wonder and it melts my heart knowing how incredibly blessed I am to have two little miracles in my life that I have the honor of raising and watching grow.
