Thanks says Sweetpea

Nana has given baby A her official nickname and it is Sweetpea. I just wanted to say thanks for all the kind wishes, Sweetpea is grand and tops the scales at 9 lbs, 1oz at 4 weeks. She is eating and sleeping like a trooper or like a third child who knows her place. She is the sweetest little bug and I am smitten.

I am still recovering, I know how exciting! My incision is about another 2-3 weeks away from being completely healed. I am sick of saying I am still sick so consider it done, I am on the mend and hopefully this will the last we all hear of it.

I wish I had the energy to say how my heart swells to near bursting every time I stroke her tiny head, or how I look up in startled amazement when I see my three girls lumped together on the sofa, but I can't. Because when I do I simply have no words. These gifts I have been given humble and astonish me every day.

And then there were three

A week ago Sunday our sweet little girl arrived early (even earlier than we planned for) when my water broke and found us in a hurry to get to the hospital.

Our newest daughter weighed 6lbs 7.5 ozs and was born at 10:19am. She is healthy and fine and oh so cute. I on the the other hand am still struggling with my incision and hopefully will be healed up soon. In the meantime, Nana is taking good care of all of us.

As for her name...remember that name I loved that started with an "A"? Well that is her name and her middle name is Grace, for no other reason than while I was on the operating table for way too long it just kind of came to me.

I promise more details and more photos soon.
