Introducing our new little girl

Well she finally arrived! In what was surely the "longest" wait with the most (4) visits to Labor&Delivery only to be sent home in fake labor... Little Penny LaRue finally made her appearance on December 21st. Much like her siblings when she was ready to come she didn't waste any time. After 2 hours of labor and 3 min of pushing she entered the world bright eyed and happy. 

Our dear friend Olivia designed the most perfect birth announcement for us, taking into account our love of the Beatles while keeping things fresh and clean. She is amazing you can see more of her beautiful work HERE
 The girl has been a dream come true. We snuggle all day, she sleeps all night, waking up only once to be fed. I am afraid that all of that will change so I am enjoying it all while it lasts.
 The girl never cries, and is truly the peacemaker of the family. We feel blessed to have her.
 And Jude and Abbey simply adore her. They love trying to get her attention, and helping in every way they can. They just can't get enough of dear sweet Penny, and we have been loving the holiday season to spend lots of time together as a family.
Blogging will be getting back to normal soon. There are some fun planned posts coming up, but for now I am enjoying every second with this little girl, and recovering as best as can be expected.

  15. TWO HOURS! So awesome. 6 felt super speedy to me; it makes total sense you had the "false" L&D trips, you knew you couldn't waste any time just in case. ;) Anyway she's super adorable and it's so cute seeing your big kids with her. LOVE the name Penny, too!

  17. Congratulations! Aren't those quick labors wonderful? Penny is just so precious, and I Love her name! LaRue is my grandmother's middle name and we tried so hard to find a way to use it for our daughter. Unfortunately it wouldn't work with our last name. But when I told my Gram, she said "Why would you want to do that? It's terrible, and I never liked it!" LOL "It's YOUR name Gram, and I think it's awesome!"

  21. Awww! What a fun name AND we have the same birthday!!! December 21st is great! My mom always kept my gifts separate from Christmas and on my half birthday in the summer she always did a little something special, since not all my friends could always come to my birthdays due to Christmas! As I got older, she continued it and always had a new outfit on my bed or something simple like popcicles! :)

  26. Welcome Penny! Penelope and Penny are "one" of my favorite names. AND you were born on MY birthday! It's a great date. It's almost always the winter solstice - the shortest day of the year, but I always felt like a snow queen with a birthday so close to Christmas. It might be hard when you're young, your birthday might be the same as your piano recital - but as you get older you'll always be able to count on having your family with you during your birthday! Welcome to Earth Penny!
