So anyone that knows us from before the birth of Lalo knows that we waited a LONG time for Lalo to be born. By that I mean he was due Christmas Eve… and he was born January 7…. and the doctors kept assuring us that whole time he would be here ‘any day’. (starting around THANKSGIVING time they thought he could be here anyday…) It was a long Christmas, New Years and after season… After a very rough delivery and recovery he finally was with us!! Needless to say, he was worth the wait and effort! 🙂
When we decided to try adding to our family we were met with some hurdles of a miscarriage and quite a few months on either side trying to get pregnant again. So when we found out we were expecting little Miss Éowyn we were hesitant to celebrate and prepped ourselves for a long and late pregnancy. Well, Éowyn had very different plans. She ended up coming not anywhere near her due date of April 21… but the last week I had planned to work and a full month before her due date March 30. 🙂 She came quickly and easily and has proved to be polar opposite of her brother the last few weeks she has graced us with her beautiful self.
Thanks to a wonderful community of friends and church we have been enjoying lots of snuggles with our sweet little miss and adjusting to life as a family of four! Lalo is an awesome big brother and so far Éowyn seems to be a much better sleeper than her big brother (YAY!)
We owe a HUGE thank you to my friend Miranda at Inner Circle Photography for capturing this beautiful moment of Lalo (and my parents!) meeting Éowyn for the first time. I am so thankful she was able to capture this moment (and drove out twice to get it 😉 🙂 )
