    Amazing! Congratulations to everyone! My "little" girl was 12 lbs at birth (although, I am a juv. diabetic) and I loved having a little filled out chubster who didn't seem quite so delicate :) Love the name, love the pic of Leo snuggling you just before the birth, love the delicious chubby cheeks! What a beautiful family of 4!

  25. Thank you! Juggling two has made me think often of your family and how you guys are my hero(ine)s! It's been an adjustment - but so worth it.

  26. For REAL! Now that she's out and the swelling has gone down it's nuts to see myself in the mirror again!

  27. Thanks for the idea! It was fun digging up old pictures to compare them as newborns :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. It was! So nuts how much had happened by 7 am!

  29. Hahahaha! Yes! It was intense! And beautiful. I feel really lucky!

  30. Thank you! Yes - the added sturdiness that the extra weight adds has come in handy with a big bro who wants to shower her with hugs and kisses!
