Crash Diet

I went on a crash diet on Sunday, July 4th when we welcomed little Louise to our family. A healthy, happy baby. What more could a person ask for?! She tipped the scales at 9lbs even and is 21" long. Both of us are doing well.

She has already cemeted herself into the center of our hearts.

How could we resist her pouty mouth?


Her wisps of blond hair, with a bit of a dark streak on the back.

Her perfect fingers that clasp ours when we hold her.

Her many silly and sweet faces that have her siblings (and parents) in stitches.

We love her. We'll keep her. She's all ours.

Must be the fact that you live close to Eric and Maggie that she kinda looks like their kids. She's a little cutie!

Well Congratulations! I love her name and nickname. Our little Louise turns 2 in a month and we call her Weezy; not quite what I had in mind. Good luck with your sweet baby and your journey down the road to recovery!
