Emily Lynn

Emily is finally here! I went into labor on Valentines Day and delivered at 12:09 am on the 15th. We thought it would be a ton of fun to have a baby on V-Day, but Emily had other plans, she refused to share her birthday with the world! She weighed 7lbs 10oz and was 19 and 1/2 inches long. She has a ton of blond hair and is as sweet as can be. Her eyes are giant and beautiful and looking blue so far. Most importantly she is healthy and strong and we feel so blessed to have her sweet spirit here with us.

We came home on Saturday and have just loved watching the other kids interact with her. Audrey is in love! She calls her "my baby" and is so soft and sweet to her. Elizabeth is in official big sister mode and wants to do anything she can to help. Poor Dallin has been sick, but he is loving her from afar, and Anna is always amazing and helpful and loves Emily with all her heart.

I am so grateful to be a part of this family and feel truly blessed to have such amazing children and a wonderful husband. Jeff is just amazing. He stays awake with me at night when I am nursing, and he has changed almost every dirty diaper. He has made sure all the kids are fed and dressed, and bathed. He tucks them in and plays with them. And on top of everything he takes care of me too. You couldn't ask for a more dedicated, loving father and husband. I love him very much and am so proud of him. It will be awesome to have him home with me this week.

I promise to post pictures of the baby very soon, and of the new house!

Quick Update

#1 Getting settled in new house...there are still a gazillion boxes everywhere.
#2 Getting closer to due date...there is still a baby in there.

I've been to the hospital twice with wicked contractions, but this baby seems to take after her big sis Audrey and will probably be very late! I feel like I've been in labor for a week...UGH!!!!!!!!!

#3 Happy Valentines Day!
