Everlit Ann Free

So, when I said to look for pictures and such "next week," I apparently meant NEXT MONTH. It's a long story, but we didn't have internet for the whole month of August. But it's back! Whoohoo! Now it's time to play catch-up...

Like I said before, our sweet little Everlit Ann came on August 2, 2010. She was 5lbs 5oz, 18 3/4" long, and healthy as can be. She's grown a lot already, but she's still tiny and just absolutely adorable. She's perfect. She eats well, sleeps well, and ALWAYS wants to be held. :)

Joseph is the greatest big brother ever. He's so good with her. The first words out of his mouth when he wakes up in the mornings and from his naps are "Baby? Baby?" So we take him to her and he points out her facial features, "No!" (nose), "Eye," etc. Then, he holds his hands out and says, "UH!" Which means he wants to hold her. He calls her "Evi" or "Baby." When he's tired, he lets us know that he wants mom to hold him and not Everlit by saying, "Baby," then pointing at either her swing, the couch, or daddy, and saying, "Uh." Which means he wants someone or something other than mom to hold her so that I can hold him and he can play with my hair.

Here's the video of when they first met. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect reaction. Enjoy!


  1. that video made me tear up! How sweet!! She is gorgeous

  3. She is adorable! I cannot believe how tiny she is! I'm glad that Joseph loves his little sister. So cute! CONGRATS!

  4. How cute. I bet it's so fun to have a new baby there with your already adorable little boy!

    I'm so excited for Aedan to be a big brother and to learn how to love and be gentle with a little brother. Counting down the days. It's exciting to see what it will be like through your experiences.

    Thanks for sharing. :)
