  1. She’s gorgeous! Sounds like a wonderful birthday present to me :) My Mom always jokes I was rather disagreeable when I was born. I was two weeks late, but I didn’t wait 3 more days to be born on her parents’ birthday (they shared the same birth date).
    I can’t wait to see pictures of her with her siblings.

    1. lol so funny! I would be more than ready to have a baby two weeks late!

      Photos with siblings are coming tomorrow :)

  2. What a gorgeous girl! Congratulations to you all and welcome Baby Anna! She looks like she knows something we don’t in that first photo.

  3. Ahhhh! Congratulations! It’s funny, I’ve been watching a lot of Downton Abbey and I have been drawn to the name Anna (one of the characters) Great choice. How are the kids?? I bet they are thrilled to have a squishy baby in the house :)

  4. We’re at a family reunion but I just had to check! Congrats, lots of love and hugs to you all! I am so happy all went well and would be so happy to hear baby Anna and your birth story!

    Lots of love,

  5. What great news! I’m so excited for you and your family. Hoping things went smoothly, and I would love to hear about it sometime… Also- she wasn’t huge??! She doesn’t look huge. Another plus!

    1. Thanks, Erica! She is not huge at all – 7lbs. 11oz., although she’s pretty tall (22″!). I’m sure that helped things go smoothly. I was really happy with the birth!
