New Addition!

One week ago today we welcomed Little Miss Gemma Pearl into the world. On Tuesday, April 3rd at 8:33pm, she weighed 7lb. 4 oz. and was 19 inches long – a petite little thing just like her momma!


Gemma was due on April 7th, but we’d told her to come on Tuesday because it meant she could be delivered by the midwife and that Momma’s maternity leave could extend to the end of the school year. Gem listened well, but though I had contractions on and off all through the school day, things didn’t really get rolling until dinnertime that evening. She missed the midwife, but luckily the on-call doctor listened when I called, and all made it to the hospital in plenty of time.

Edmond was excited to hold his new “siser”… For about 8 seconds.

He asks to give her a kiss when he wakes up in the morning, but then he’s ready to start playing. His main coping technique right now seems to be becoming terribly independent. We hear “Edmond do it!” about a million times a day! : )

Charlie is settling in too and readjusting to nighttime feedings. He doesn’t even stir anymore. All in all, we feel so blessed to be a family of 5 – 4 humans and a canine!
