Meeting baby Josie

I was concerned about how Juliet would react to seing me in a hospital bed holding a new baby, so I parked myself on the couch and made sure someone else was holding Josie. Turns out Juliet didn't care. She actually has been so interested in the baby and just loves her. She is so good at saying "baby" now and wants to give her her binkie and love on her all the time. She goes looking for Josie as soon as she wakes up. This is much better than how I thought she'd respond. It has made the transition so much easier for me, but I am still overwealmed most of the time.

Our new family of 6! Emmary reminds me all the time that we have a big family with a lot of people. Yes we do....

This is the best we're gonna get trying to convince 4 kids to sit quietly and say "cheese."

Josie with her eyes sort of open. She has big blue eyes with long eyelashes like the other kids, but I think she looks like Tim's side of the family.

This was actually taken a couple hours after she was born. I am so exhausted and sort of forcing a smile.

What a proud big sister. Emmary so sweetly told me that she thinks she loves Josie more than Juliet :) I told her that's not allowed :>

She is beautiful! You are amazing! Can you even believe how different every delivery is? I'm just so glad she's here and is healthy! Emmary looks so sweet and so very proud holding. I love that she said she loves her more then Juliet, thats too funny!

I know this post is like a year old. But I was blog stalking and wandered over here. Seeing your face made me miss you. I think about the friendship we had often. I wish I had been a better friend. I wish we had stayed in touch. I loved hanging out with you when we attended Brandi's funeral and I meant to call you, and then my life got crazy busy and kind of sad. I had to focus all the energy I had on just coping. Things are better now so I wanted to reach out and let you know that I'm thinking about you:) I hope you are doing well!
