If you don't follow me on facebook, then you don't know that we were ever so surprised to welcome our wee Ember Sophia into the world last night!!
As many of you know, I have trouble with pre-term labor so it was an amazing thing that I was able to get to 37 weeks! While she was a great weight--she still has a couple of signs indicating that she was 3 weeks early. She's very sleepy :) but we are working through that.

And a helmet full of coal black hair.
My first time holding Ember :)
4 hrs old
Sporting her first shabby rose headband :)
Meeting her big sisters and adopted grandma for the first time! Our Brynna (the 4 year old) is absolutely enamored with her. I'm afraid she expects to sit and hold her all day long...
and who could blame her? This is a living, breathing baby...the same size as her own baby doll! (except with more hair...that is actually soft)
So tell me, are you all the types who like to read about birth stories? Let me know if you do, and I'll work that up in the next couple weeks.
Also, if you haven't found out on Facebook already, the winner (YES, there was a winner) of the baby name contest is Nichole Hartwick! She was the only one who guessed our Ember's first name correctly and she will win her choice of either a custom Buttercup Bag, a custom cloth diaper, or a Shades of Dawn Necklace. Congratulations Nichole!
