Miss Ramona Jean is here! She was born 6 weeks ago today (a little late on the announcement, ahem). Six weeks seems like a long time but man has it flown by. She was 4 days early weighing 8 pounds 12 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long.
We chose to have her at home just like we had done with her brother three years prior. We rented a birthing tub this time around and I was able to deliver her in water. She came out facing "sunny side up" looking out at everyone with open eyes. It was an incredible experience that I was thankful to have.
We've been adjusting to a family of four over the past few weeks. She is a MUCH easier baby than her brother ever was, and we seem to be less anxious parents this time around. We all seem to be completely smitten with her too--especially her big brother....
My heart melts when these two are together. Niko always wants to hold her and she smiles and coos when he does. I'm feeling pretty lucky so far.
