I am so thrilled to announce that Miss Cora Grace has entered the world! I won’t post the entire birth story just yet — it has all been a bit of a whirlwind! Definitely be on the lookout for that post soon, though.
We are all home and adjusting to our new life as a family of 4. What I will say, is that Sophie has been adjusting quite well so far, to having a new sister. I’m going to credit the Daniel Tiger episodes involving baby Margaret, as well as all the merchandise my mother bought to go in tandem with those episodes. A couple hours after Cora was born, our parents brought Sophie to the hospital to visit us in recovery. Sophie actually leaned forward and gave Cora a kiss without any prompting from us. That was such a sweet moment, I’ll probably never forget.
Things have been going rather smoothly (minus like, 6 hours of my usual sleep time every day…) but I know I’m probably in for some tough times when my mom leaves and J goes back to work. Luckily, I have about a week and a half before I’m doing this gig solo during the day. Hopefully that gives my body the time it needs to heal in order to function as a mom of 2 by then.
I just want to take a moment to thank anyone who has followed along this journey with me, whether it be via facebook or through this blog. Thank you for your constant thoughts, prayers, and advice. One thing I love about blogging and social media, is that it can connect you to many honest, caring people!
Continue to pray for our little family as we go through this adjustment. I truly believe that it is prayers from all of you that have injected my life with so much grace, and made this adjustment smoother!
