Our Family is Complete!

It happened at 5:08am on August 18 2008 after a very loooooong 16 hours of labor!

Welcome to the world Thérèse Juliette!!!

I’m guessing many of you are wondering: “How the heck do you pronounce that???”

so the phonetic spelling is:

T e – r e z

So it’s easy to SAY even if not easy to read. Yes it’s French and those who know me pretty well should not be surprised 🙂

Sabrina had us cracking up because after I told her what her new sister’s name is I wanted to see if she would repeat it back correctly so I asked her what her baby sister’s name is she said: “Thérèse- it’s a French name.” Chris was next to us and said “that’s right! and Sabrina answers: “No, Daddy speaks English. Daddy you say baby sister and Mommy and Sabrina say Thérèse.”

Anyway life is hectic and we are all tired so I will keep this short and leave you with a quick snapshot of my perfect little girl

One more thing I think is interesting- both of my girls were born exactly on their duedates and weighed exactly the same size (7lbs 11oz) and I gained the exact amount of weight both pregnancies as well (a whopping 43lbs!). It will be fun to see personality-wise how they will be similar!  I can’t wait 🙂

I think it goes without saying that MANY many more photos to follow!!!
