House For Six

House For Six!

Well Guys....we had a baby!  And our blog name is officially outdated.  On Jan 13th we welcomed Olivia Joy to our family and are now a house for six!  She made her debut a day late at 9lb 6oz and 21 inches long. 

The jury is still out on her eye color, but she has a full head of black hair and is absolutely beloved....by none more than this sweet guy here.  Screaming or sleeping, he would be happy to hold her all the live long day.

I was looking through my phone and this is the last pregnant pic I could find.  It was the day before we went to the hospital and we braved the frigid wind for a walk around the block..all in the name of get-the-dang-baby-out.  And fresh air for the minions.  My mom is looking very Greek here, no? 


Thankfully James kept a "Dad's Log" once we got to the hospital (as he's done for all our kids), which means I can cheat with his notes for all the nitty gritty birth story details and let my baby brain off the hook a bit.  It's in the works.

We're s-l-o-w-l-y emerging from the newborn fog and I think we maaay be starting to fall into a bit of a.....rhythm.  Yes that.  Schedule or routine would be a bit of a stretch.  We'll say rhythm. 

I'll be honest, these past few weeks have been hard.  It's been a huge adjustment for our family.  Much harder than I anticipated in some ways and completely amazing in ways I didn't expect.  There has been so much beauty and tears and grace filling these days.  We just feel so thankful. 

And how is this baby 4 weeks old already?!?!
 
I hope you all have been well!  I've missed meeting here with you and look forward to catching up!  We did manage to finish a couple of small projects before Livi joined us and I can't wait to share those and get your feedback on some upcoming plans. You know I must be feeling more like myself if house projects are on the brain again *wink wink*


Thanks so much for reading! We would love to hang out!
