Baby Anna

As you probably all saw on my mom's blog, on February 23, 2012 our family was joined by Anna Elizabeth! We were and are very happy :) - she's a good baby, looks a lot like Esther did, eats well, sleeps fairly well, and is a blessing from the Lord!

She weighed 7 lb. 2 oz and was 21 inches long. She was born at 5:39 PM.
She likes to be with Mommy and Daddy! Esther wasn't too sure when I was holding Anna and wouldn't pick her up...but she's already getting used to it and makes sure we know if "baby" is crying :)

It's hard to believe it's been over a week already! I went into labor in the middle of the night, about 1:30 and since I was already part way along, I thought it would go quickly - however, she wasn't born until that evening! Much more painful than with Esther, but at least this time I'm not as worrried about taking care of a baby - with Esther I was sort of in a daze for a couple weeks just trying to figure out if my life had just ended or not :)
I'll try to post more picture later -

I'm so excited for you!!! :) I had a feeling it would be a girl....you're just like us now! :) She looks like a real sweetie. You should call me sometime...I keep thinking about calling you, but I know how exhausting it can be having a newborn and I'm always scared I'll wake you up from a nap or something. :) Love you guys!
