I am a week late…more than a week…but today I am finally sharing the big news. Making the big official announcement.
Last week, July 16 at 8:42 am, Baby Number Three made her way into the World.
That’s right, it’s a GIRL!
Her name is Áine Katherine and she is pure angel.
And we are all in love…can you tell? Big Brother and Big Sister are totally smitten. They shower her with gentle caresses on the head, kisses, and soothing words. They tell her she is beautiful and when she cries they tell her, “It’s okay.” I am amazed at how quickly and how much my first and second born have grown up since Áine’s arrival. I am in awe that we all started in this same spot. I am once again overwhelmed by the unconditional love a Mommy and Daddy can feel, not to mention that same love from a sibling, grandparent, auntie, or uncle.
The past week has been full of sleepless nights, postpartum recovery, the occasional visitor, and little milestones. We are doing well at the Circus Berry household, albeit adjusting to life with a newborn. Mommy is on the road to pre-pregnancy functioning, and Áine is thriving. All is right with the World and life is good.
Thanks for hanging in there while I adjust to our new life. Circus Berry will be back in full action soon. In the meantime, have a great weekend and enjoy those summer days!
