Well, we have waited and WAITED for our second little daughter, and our (not so patient) waiting has finally paid off!! We are officially a family of four! I’ll probably give a more graphic description of what exactly went down during the labor and birth in the future, but for now I wanted to post a few pictures and let everyone know she made her arrival! Since neither of us are high-tech enough for smartphones (and of course too cheap 😉 haha) we had to wait until we got home – just today! – but that worked out okay since who really has any energy to move, let alone update people, from the hospital bed with a crying new baby?!
We made it to the hospital Tuesday, October 7th around 9:30 p.m. with some intense contractions going and Evelyn Grace Miller joined the family a couple hours later at 11:22 p.m.! She weighed 7 lb 13 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long.
We love her very much, although I’m not sure anyone displayed quite the level of excitement as we got from big sister! We weren’t sure how Abigail would react to losing the only child status, but she has been completely obsessed with Evie from the moment she saw her! I’m sure we will have our ups and downs in the days ahead, but I’m so glad she has such an evident love for her little sister already. 🙂 It certainly fills my heart with joy to watch her kissing her and begging to hold her!
