I'd like to introduce you all to the newest member of our little family...miss Pearl Violet. She was born on April 8th, weighing in at 7lbs 14oz.
This sweet girl has been keeping me busy the past 2 weeks, so sorry for my absence! Pearl was born 8 days late...here I am the day I had her at 8 days overdue and very ready!
I won't post a full birth story, sorry! I'm a little too private for that. But everything went great and she's just perfect. It was probably my favorite birth experience of my three girls. Very laid back and calm. She is HUGE compared to my other two...almost a full 2lbs heavier. She also has lots of dark brown hair which is totally different than what we were expecting! I wasn't sure if I was really holding my child when she came out, who knew I'd have a chunky brunette?
A lot of people are curious about her name. Pearl is actually a family name, it's my great great aunt. But, that's not necessarily why we chose it. We just thought it was a beautiful vintage name that went well with Lula and Jane's vintage names. Lula and Jane actually came up with Violet. As soon as I found out I was having a girl, Lula decided she should be named Violet and the girls called her "baby Violet" the rest of my pregnancy. We thought it was so sweet and such a pretty name that they chose, so we picked it for the middle name. I love that Pearl's sisters took part in naming her.
She is such a sweetie and I almost can't believe it's only been 2 weeks. It feels like she's been a part of our family forever.
She has the classic "wide eyed" look that my other 2 had.
It's going to be an adjustment going from 2 to 3 little girls, but we are up for the challenge!
I'm currently thinking about how to balance this blog with my 3 little ones, so far I haven't done the best job. But I love blogging and I'm not ready to give it up. Thanks for bearing with me as I've been more absent throughout my pregnancy and birth of little Pearl. I hope to be more consistent once we get into our new rhythm of life.
