I know people have been looking for updates.  As you can imagine, it’s been insane here.  We’re all doing well.  I’m healing nicely and V is gaining weight.  (Slowly, but she is gaining.)  We still have people here to help which is great…I’ve been able to focus on taking care of the baby and the big boys have people to entertain them.  They are both adjusting very well.  I was really worried that C would have a lot of jealousy issues since he is still so young and so attached to me, but he’s been great with her.  J is also doing well and we’re not seeing any of the jealousy issues like we saw when C was born.  They both seem to adore her and every time she’s awake they’re both telling me they want to hold her.  It’s very sweet!

D is working 2 jobs and hasn’t been around much.  But it looks like we’ll be able to stay afloat for a little longer.  Hopefully something better will come along soon so we can see him a bit more often.

V is doing well.  She can already hold her head up, has great muscle tone, and a perfectly symmetrical head.  After C’s issues, I know that this is something to celebrate!  Here’s a photo of her from Tuesday, when she was 2 weeks old.


I don’t have the time (or energy) to blog details, but here are the vitals!

Violet arrived at 12:28PM on January 20, 2009.  She weighed in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces and was 20 3/4 inches long.  She is healthy, I am recovering well, and we are all glad to be home.


And just in case you’re wondering, here’s a picture from this morning.  I look like I swallowed a basketball!


W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
