We wanted to take a moment this afternoon to briefly introduce the newest (slightly delayed) arrival to our family!

Baby S!
Baby S!

Yesterday evening we were thrilled to finally meet Baby S!  She weighed in at 8 lbs 7 ounces and has been doing great getting used to life on this big planet of ours.  For the record, Big Sister C is also pretty thrilled about about having her new little sister join our crazy crew.

While I absolutely do plan to keep/resume regular posting in the very near future, her delivery did have some unexpected “surprises” in store for us including an unplanned C-section, so apologies in advance if I’m a little slower with a few things while we adjust to our new life as a family of four.

After a little extra recovery, we will start building a new set of adventures together, and I can’t wait to share this next chapter with all of you!
