Well it’s all over Facebook and Instagram by now so it’s likely not news to anyone that our sweet baby girl was born this past week. Still, here is the official blog announcement with photos that we haven’t yet posted anywhere else.
Our 3rd child and our first girl was born on Friday September 5th at 8:27pm. She weighed in at 7lbs 15.2 ounces, is 21 inches long with a 14 inch head circumference. She has plenty of fuzzy hair that is a light brown/dirty blonde sort of color, and big grey blue eyes.
Aurelia is pronounced aw-rey-lee-uh and means golden in latin. Ann means grace and is a family middle name. It’s my mom’s middle name and is part of the name’s of all the girls on that side of the family (mine is LeAnn, my sister’s is LouAnn, etc).
My mom submitted her birthday to the local news and the anchor pronounced her name correctly so for those of you wanting to hear it pronounced watch this little snippet. (The other birthday is her uncle Cody! )
We were so surprised at how much she resembles Desmond
when he was brand new and joked that her name was Desmond 2.0 when the family came to meet her. She is developing her own look as the days go by but is still very reminiscent of her big brothers.
We came home Saturday afternoon and have been enjoying our time as a family of 5. I feel so complete. I’ll be sure to post more about labor and delivery soon.
