We are so excited to announce the arrival of our third baby girl, miss Claire Vivien. She was born July 1st at 8:20 am, weighing 7lbs 10oz & 21 inches long.
It has been a whirlwind of a week! Claire is a dainty little thing, even though she weighs close to the same as the other girls, it feels like her facial features are just so tiny! She most resembles Harper, although from the side, and sometimes when she is sleeping, she is the spitting image of Eloise. We are so in love with her, she is such a perfect addition to our family & we can't imagine life without her.
Harper & Eloise just adore her, they have been such sweet & patient big sisters. Things have gotten exponentially more chaotic, Harper cries when Claire cries because she gets so upset about it, and Eloise is determined to climb on top of Claire any chance she gets. It has been really hard not being able to pick them up, Eloise is too young to understand which leads her to tears & pulling on my leg, and breaks my heart into a million pieces. I can't wait to be able to rock her at bedtime again or pick her up from her crib in the mornings.
As for my third c-section, it went really well & the recovery has so far been my best yet. I have been pleasantly surprised & so thankful for that!! Thanks to my mom & Brandon who have been taking turns helping take care of the big girls, I have been able to get a lot of rest while Claire naps during the day. We are still working on the night time thing but I am ok with that. It's actually so peaceful in the middle of the night, I don't even mind so much. Yet. :)
I promise to be back soon sharing more details about her birth, my c-section & recovery. And of course more pictures of our little darling trio, big sis, middle sis & little sis!
Thank you again for all of the kind words & sweet comments, we appreciate each & every one of them and can't express how grateful we are for your love & prayers!
