Our sweet little girl arrived August 27 in the late afternoon, three days before her actual due date. We named her Jane Esther- after her late great grandma Edith Esther Sanders. Pictured above, Jane's great grandpa Sanders is holding her after meeting her for the first time- on her second day of life.
Jane has been such a blessing to us. I loved her immediately. She is such a sweet baby and as easy as these newborns come. It's been very different having a girl this time around, although much of it feels the same as when I brought my boys home. Jane is so beautiful- she was born with the blonde hair and blue eyes, like her brothers. She has been my biggest baby at 8 lbs 1 oz and that has made all the difference in her sleeping and eating patterns. This girl took charge right away and has left little guess work for us. I sense her determined nature already. She has a simple sweetness about her that is undeniable. The boys have been great with her, they love their sister. We talked about her daily throughout my pregnancy, and I suspect it made the transition easier for them. It really does feel as if she's been with us all along.
We love you baby girl. I can't wait for the days ahead and I can't believe how lucky I am to be your mama.
