On Monday, a new little girl joined our family - Flora Therese. Everyone is healthy and well. She was in the posterior position ("sunny side up"), meaning it took me some extra work to get her out. But as always, it was worth it.
We're all in love with our sweet new baby.
The kids had been well-prepared with lots of books and discussions about how babies grow and what they are like. They have all been so anxious to meet her. Sly should be genuinely helpful. Stella is quite willing, but I expect she will prove to be "too" helpful. Linus is going to have some trouble learning to share his favorite spot - Mommy's lap.
