I’m thrilled to announce our baby girl has arrived! Meet miss Winnie James. She was born on July 28th at 11:48 pm, weighing 8lbs 4oz and measuring 19 inches long.

We are of course absolutely smitten with her, including big sister Mae. My heart melted into a puddle our first day home when Mae piled her most cherished loveys and toys on top of Winnie as a welcome home gift. Mae loves to smother Winn with kisses and hugs and tells me multiple times a day that “Winnie is sooooo cute.” It really is so sweet to see the immediate bond they’ve formed and in hindsight, I can’t believe I was worried about how Mae would respond to her. The girl loves being a big sister.

Of course, there are the hilarious moments too, like when Mae noticed Winnie’s umbilical cord stump and informed me in a very concerned voice that Winnie was “pooping out of her belly button.”

My mom was in town through yesterday helping us clean (no joke she ironed for eight hours!) and offering another set of hands while we bonded with Winnie. Now that she’s left I’m working on getting back into a daily routine. I’ll be back to blogging full time next week, and will hopefully be able to get in another few posts this week too!

Thank you for your good wishes and kind words. We’re over the moon with our newest addition.
