Chloe is a great big sister!

I was very worried about how Chloe would react when meeting Emery for the first time. Chloe is very possessive over us and I was worried she would lash out toward the baby, but I couldn't have been more wrong.

Chloe was at my mothers while we were in the hospital. So she didn't get to meet Emery until she was 4 days old. She came home early Monday morning while Em was still asleep so we got to spend some one on one time with Chloe since she was away from us for so long. It was nice to get that special time with her first since i missed her so much while she was gone. Then after about 2 hours, Emery woke up and we introduced them. We had Chloe sit

Chloe is so sweet to her little sister. She says hi all the time and gently rubs her head. She gets concerned when Emery starts to whimper or cry and she even shared her sacred blankie and lovie with her. When Emery is in her bassinet Chloe loves to rock it and will hold on to the edge and just stand there next to her for a long time. She even asks me to put baby in swing, then she tries pushing it (i assuming she thinks its like the swings at the. Playground that she loves so much) Chloe already knows what certain lovie is Emery's and every time she sees it she brings it to Em. Chloe has now wanted to start sitting next to me and cuddle my arm while I am nursing Emery, it's pretty cute. She has been such a cutie and good helper. I am so glad she likes her  little sister.

Emery's Birth Announcement

James took some really adorable photos of Emery. It was so hard to pick which one to put on the baby announcement, but I think this one worked out quite well. I will post the other pictures sometime soon. Just FYI, Shutterfly has some really cute cards.

She's finally here!

As of June 14th at 7:23 pm our little family became 4 of us. Our beautiful Emery Rose graced us with her presence finally. She weighed in at 8 lbs 3 oz and 19.5 inches long. She has a ton of hair and her eyes are already turning blue. We think she looks exactly how Chloe did when she was born.

We already went to her first baby apt and she is doing great. A little jaundice in the eyes and she lost 9 ounces, but the doc said that continued nursing will fix all that. And Emery is crazy strong. During the exam, Emery was doing "push ups" and moving her head all around. She even flipped herself over from her stomach to her back. I couldn't believe it.. And at just 4 days old.

Chloe loves her and ill share more of that in another post. Right now i have to go snuggle with my new sweetie...
