Welcome Miss Emily!

After much anticipation and preparation, little miss Emily Grace has arrived!

She was born at 7:32 am on September 24th, weighing in at 8 lb 2 oz and 21.25" long. Bigger than her brother was, much to our surprise since we were told she was measuring small!

She's been such a great baby so far, though she still has her days and nights mixed up and thinks 10 pm - 3 am are Happy Hour at the Mama Corral.

Matthew is doing exceptionally well adapting to life as a family of four and has fallen into his role of big brother with enthusiasm. He really is great. He still calls Emily "Baby Sistah" a lot of the time but has taken to calling her Em-A-Lee or just Millie. Very cute.

I'll post the birth story in a bit. For now, a couple of pictures...

A typical ride-home convo with Matthew

This is a typical conversation with Matthew on the way home from Mimi's at the end of the day...

Me: "How was your day today?"
Matthew: "Are we going THIS way Mummy? Mummy are we going THIS way? A mini-loader! Look a mini-loader! A mini-loader Mummy!! S-T-O-P... spells STOP. Red light Mummy! I see a red light! Stop!! Are we stopping? Oh it's green... It's green now! We can go now! Go Mummy! *pause*"
Me: "I'm going buddy. So, what did you do-"
Matthew: "A BUS Mummy! Look - a bus... in front of us! A BUS MUMMY! Where are we going? Are we going home? Where are we going? WHERE ARE WE GOING? Are we going THIS way? I want to go THIS way Mummy!! NO THIS WAY!! Wahhhh I want to go this wayyyyy... Where are we going? *pause* "
Me: "We're going home-"
Matthew: "I had pizza today! And chicken! I ate lunch today with my friends. Owen, and Connor, and Marley... but not YOU Mummy! Where are we going? Are we going THIS way??"

etc. Mostly at the top of his lungs. Haha.
