Aerin Isabel was born 11/1/11 at 9:20am, weighing 6 lbs 11 oz and measuring 19.5″ long.
Delivery was remarkably easy and complication-free (she was out in three pushes!); the baby very healthy and alert. I feel incredibly blessed that both Claire and Aerin made their entries into this world so smoothly.
My first thought upon seeing Aerin for the first time was that she looked EXACTLY like Claire when she was born — they even have the same dimple on the left corner of their mouths! But now, a few hours after delivery — with her features becoming more defined and less flattened — she is beginning to resemble her dad.
The pictures above were taken just moments after birth. I will try to update with newer photos, but blogging is admittedly difficult on a cell phone. As was the case last year when Claire was born, guest posts will start to go up shortly, and I will do my best to pop in as much as possible in-between bonding with Aerin and getting used to being the mother of two little girls.
Thank you all so much for your continued support and prayers!
