It’s a Girl!

Big brother approves!
Yes yes yes, I’ve resolved to write more and read more and all that this year, but sometimes things come up where you have to put your goals aside for a bit. We had a baby girl on July 25! Her name is Sabrina, and she’s absolutely wonderful. She was 7lbs 4oz, and 21 inches long – almost the same size as Graham when he was born! Graham absolutely loves his little sister, and is constantly checking on her to make sure she’s okay. It was only an hour of labor (but darn hard work!) and we were home the next day. You can check here for a full set of pictures we took around the birth. More to come on Flickr soon, I’m sure!
So far, she is a pretty easy-going baby. She snoozes for long stretches, and never really cries. She goes for long stretches without eating in those cases, and will wake up hungry and do a few feedings in a short amount of time. She had a bit of jaundice when she was born, but that has mostly cleared up… exposing just how blonde her hair actually is! She was definitely pre-disposed to having blonde hair and blue eyes, and she has confirmed the latter by looking around with those blue eyes very alertly whenever she is awake! She is very strong, already lifting her head up to move it around when she is not feeling lazy. We love our little girl!
