Hello Sweet Heidi Lynn!

On March 2nd, 2012, the world became infinitely cuter! Heidi Lynn was born at 9:25 a.m., weighing 7 lbs 10 oz and was 19.5" long. She was born at 38 weeks 6 days gestation, which was a day earlier than her big sister Naomi, who was 9 lbs 3 oz, so I was expecting another big baby! But little Heidi was kind to her mama and made quick work of the labor and delivery. From when the contractions came often enough for me to start timing them to when she was born was just over 3.5 hours. She's a healthy, beautiful baby who is adored by her parents and big sisters!

The girls came in to meet their baby sister and were in love from the moment they saw her. 

Naomi wanted to show Heidi her "Super Daisy"

Our first family photo. I made all the girls matching headbands and the big girls "I'm the big sister" shirts :)
Charlotte and Naomi have been wonderful with Heidi. They've not shown any jealousy or aggression with her and have been patient with me when my time has been occupied with nursing her or napping to catch up on my sleep. I'm grateful for how well they're adjusting and for what a sweet baby little Heidi is!
