She’s here, she’s here!

Actually, she’s been here for two weeks, but who has time to sit down at a computer with a newborn and two four-year-olds around? 😉

June Susan joined our family on July 26 at 8:16am. She was 7lb 10oz and arrived with a full head of hair!

She’s a snuggly baby who sleeps a lot and makes adorable little purring noises. Though we are all absolutely in love with her, big sisters Molly and Clara are particularly enamored.

They’d like to constantly hold her and have upended a number of June’s naps with enthusiastic kisses and hugs.

Frank and I picked out the name June a couple of years ago, even before we knew we would have another child. Susan is my mom’s middle name. We talked about many other first names before she arrived, but ultimately we realized her name was always meant to be June. The current rotation of nicknames include “Jun-ee” and June-bug. As it turns out, June is a great name for transforming into cute nicknames!

Thank you all for the well wishes after we shared the news on Instagram! We’ll get back to the blogging routine (and surely more baby pics) soon!
