Happy 19 Months!

Annabel sitting pretty in her new special stroller. We are so excited about the stroller, it will provide great support and positioning for Annabel. How nice that it arrived on her birthday, too!

Sleepless Days and Sleepless Nights..

But not for Stinker! When Ava wakes up crying, Stinker continues to sleep soundly. Sometimes she will open her eyes just for a minute and look at Ava for a bit...but soon after she is back to sleep again. We are so happy that (so far) Stinker isn't losing any sleep over her little sister!

Big sister, meet little sister...

It was this last Wednesday that Carrie and I came home from the hospital. After two full days, we both missed Annabel so much. She was in capable hands as Meemaw was gracious enough to come stay with us and look after her.

We had some very surprising news for her.

Carrie and I had of course spoken to Annabel to explain she had a little sister coming. She obviously could tell that something was different about mommy's appearance and the way she walked so slowly the last couple of weeks :)

When we arrived home we woke Annabel up from her mid day nap and introduced her to her new little sister, Ava Joy. I don't think I've ever witnessed a more beautiful sight.

A little more about Ava:
Ava arrived 11-01-10 weighing 6lbs 15oz and measuring 19 3/4" in length. She is lovely.

Mom is still tired, but she is recovering nicely. I have to get back to the office tomorrow, which will be interesting since we have been operating on about 3 hours of sleep per night.

Regardless, we are so grateful and feel very blessed.

More photo sessions to follow soon, no doubt.

Good night!
