A holiday arrival

December 18, 2009

My days of late have been filled with tiny toes, a button nose, snuggles against impossibly soft skin, and falling in love (not to mention crazy sleep schedules and diapers galore!) Our baby girl made her entrance into the world just little over a week ago, in the wee hours of the morning. She’s a tiny little peanut with a full head of hair! B and I are doing well, getting to know little A, and very thankful for our little bundle of holiday joy.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season. I’ll be back in the New Year!

    Amy! She’s absolutely, completely beautiful. Congratulations. I’m thrilled for you.

    Hooray Amy! What a gorgeous girl. And that hair!!! I love newborns with lots of hair, I think it is so adorable. Hang in there. These next few months can be so tiring and it can be challenging getting to know one another. But that little sweet bundle gets so big before you know it. Enjoy those snuggles and congratulations to you!

    She is awesome. So beautiful. Enjoy the time, it goes by in a second (since you are sleep deprived, I think)… a three month endurance contest is upon you… you will win!!! I had hair like her when I was born, LOVE it! Congrats. —Carrie

    Many congratulations to you Amy and your husband – she is a beautiful girl!
    You calling your daughter ‘peanut’ (our nickname for her still!) brought me back immediately to the moment of my daughter’s birth…the 10 years since have flown by…cherish every moment.
    Wishing you and your ‘new’ 🙂 family a wonderful holiday and a new year filled with many blessings!

    Congratulations, Amy!!! I’ve been thinking about you and wondering when your little one was arriving. She’s so lovely and alert! I think she looks like you! Enjoy and sleep as much as you can… there will be time for cooking and baking before you know it. We’ll await your return with patience and eagerness. Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday and a new year filled with amazing moments… 🙂

    Congrats! May your daughter bring you as much joy as mine has. Enjoy these crazy days, it will seem like the blink of an eye and you’ll have a three year old sitting on the counter in the kitchen peeling butter and putting it into the kitchen aid mixer to help make strawberry honey butter for Christmas gifts.

    Thank you, thank you everyone!! I have the best readers. 🙂 Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!

    (now, I’d suggest betrothing her to SmittenKitchen’s “older man”)
