She's Here!

Amelie Jane made her arrival on Friday, May 21st at 2:26pm, weighing 7 pounds and very nearly 5 ounces and measuring in at 18 and 3/4 inches long.

Here's a picture of Amelie on her birthday being held by her Aunt Holly.

Mom's still kind of worn out, but happy.

And, since Sam was complaining that this blog makes it seem as though I am a single parent, here are some pictures of Sam holding the baby.

Nana Jana got to come up on Saturday, and she'll stay to help out this week.

Barb and Luke have also been an enormous help. I'm not sure how we're going to be able to pay them back. (Barb sets a high bar re: baby-helping-out, but we already knew that.)

We had a bit of a meltdown being fastened into the carseat for the first time, but seemed to really enjoy the car ride home.


  1. She's freaking adorable! I hope you're all able to rest and recover quickly. I'm sending lots of love your way.

  2. I like babycakes in her little mittens. Very nice job on the babymaking.

  3. You sure made an adorable baby! Much love!

  4. So excited for you! I hope the first week continues to be be fantastic.
