Our Kaitlan Marie

Still has jaundice, but we are enjoying our  girls time on the couch. I feel like I am looking at myself...

We are excited to announce that Kaitlan Marie joined our little zoo of a family on Sunday, August 17. She was 6 pounds 3.9 ouncesĀ andĀ 18 inches long, with a head of soft blonde hair. She’s eating like a champ (cluster feeding is no joke!) and is growing a nice double chin and soft arms I can’t stop kissing.

She has a touch of jaundice that we’ve been dealing with since getting home, but once we are off the couch and off the biliblanket we’ll be taking more normal-to-us volumes of pictures.

    Congratulations to you and Neil! I have been overly invested in your pregnancy and was so thrilled to see news of her arrival pop up in my feeds. I can’t wait for the deluge of photos. Until then, enjoy these moments and your gorgeous little girl!

    Congrats! Aren’t babies the best? Take the time to enjoy your wee little one and don’t feel guilty for it.

    Congratulations Jessica and Neil! So happy for you; knew the due date so thought I’d better check your blog and there was the news! She came early and appears to be doing well. Can’t wait to meet her. Would love to bring a meal over. Do you have any particular cravings?
