Just as our babies were exiting babydom, 3 new little ones came along to take their place. In a cosmic coincidence all three Aunts were set to have their babies within weeks of each other. Aunt Sarah was first up. Ivy Madison Furnari was born December 26 weighing in at 8#10oz and 21 inches long. Just beating her scheduled induction date (and Aunt Erin's arrival) by 12 hours! Congratulations Sarah and Mike. I can't wait to meet her.
Next up, although unexpectedly so, Aunt Stacie had their new baby girl on December 30. Luke gave me a call letting me know Stacie was in the hospital and I thought he was kidding. Their new bundle of joy came in at just about 38 weeks weighing 7#7oz the exact same weight as Bianca, just over 2 years ago. Welcome Charlotte Brianne! Mom and baby are both doing great and Luke got his 2010 tax deduction. :)
Last up, Aunt Sharon had her baby on January 12. For awhile it looked like he was going to have 1-11-11 as a birthday, but instead he took his sweet time and just missed out on the auspicious date by a few hours. We are excited to be joined by Aidan Payne McBride. Born weighing 8# 5 oz and 20 inches long
Everyone is now home and settling into their families' rhythms and routines. Violet and Jack are excited to meet their new cousins and we can't wait for the fun times to begin. Who's hosting Thanksgiving again?
