The littlest little of them all

Sienna Lou 058

Sienna Lou arrived at 7:57 AM, May 15th.  6 lbs 6 oz with lots of attitude.

I’ve taken a blogger break this week to try to heal and recover (and yes, it is working slowly….I think).

Mom came over last night and when my cell phone rang at 5:40 am we both thought it was my radio alarm.  A few minutes later the regular phone rang and we both just knew.

I didn’t get to the hospital in time and the baby was born.  My sister was the talk of the OB because she delivered less than 60 minutes after entering the front door.  And, no, that isn’t unusual for our family.  It’s a miracle my sister and I were not born in toilets.

Here are a few more pictures of the day.  My sister is absolutely beautiful—full make-up and never broke a sweat.  She makes it look easy.Sienna Lou 001 Sienna Lou 015 Sienna Lou 016 Duc just sat there taking it all in.  I wonder what his little mind was thinking of all this?

Saige is always loving on Duc.  It is so sweet!Sienna Lou 024

Me, Sienna and Saige in the background.  I admit—I fought my mom for who got to hold her.  Every chance I got I would bump one of them out of the way.  Something about holding a new baby…I swear, it just gets my hormones flooding!Sienna Lou 075

Since his first referral photo I have commented on Duc’s “piano hands”.  He has the longest, meatiest little hands and today he got to play with a piano.  He may actually have some natural ability.  For banging around on a piano he still sounded really good!Sienna Lou 115_edited-1 Look at how he curves his fingers like a real pianist!Sienna Lou 128_edited-1 Sienna Lou 109_edited-1 Sienna Lou 132_edited-1   Any my favorite, favorite photo of him today!

About This Blog

This started as my story, but has evolved to OUR story. This is the story of life as a single parent to a wonderful little boy while we wait for baby sister. China LID 2.12.07.

But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day.
