An Early Arrival

Well, after preterm labor, bedrest, and medications, baby # 3 arrived right at the 36 week mark.

Introducing Amelia Grace-Marie!  Born on July 24 at 7:23 am after a 36 hour labor.  A teeny 5 lbs 15 oz and 19 3/4 in but absolutely full of spirit.

I’ve got quite a story to tell.

In the meantime, I am enjoying this bundle of joy by holding her non-stop and soaking up all her sweet, newborn goodness.

The book club is on pause until Monday at which point we’ll discuss chapter 2.  Thanks for being patient with me, this was an unexpected yet pleasant early surprise!
