Are we having ANOTHER baby?

Hailey is a wonderful addition to our family! Having a newborn makes everyone a little sweeter, a little more sentimental, and a little more concerned about what really matters.

When we came home, my sweet little Maia kept asking to feed and hold Hailey--as long as she didn't cry.

When we came home, Jake wanted to hold his baby sister, too. But he is a little bit nervous holding someone that small.

When we came home, Jenny said, "I don't like her." Then she said, "I don't like her belly button." Now she loves her. Luckily, the adjustment period didn't take too long!

But it was Lizzy's reaction to my coming home that I will always remember. When we came home, Lizzy took one look at my still-bloated belly and said, "Mom, are we having ANOTHER baby?"

Hailey, 3 Days Old

Hailey has already brought so much joy into our lives! And she keeps on getting cuter! My only complaint is that her schedule is backwards--she sleeps during the day and wakes up at night. But I really shouldn't complain: she eats, sleeps, and goes to the bathroom well! Can't ask for more than that :)

We are so excited to have our little Hailey join our family! Here are her stats:

Jake and Maia are doting older siblings. Lizzy can't stop stroking her head. Jenny's still making up her mind, but we think they're going to be best friends :). Her dad LOVES to hold her, and so do I!
