Baby Jesus Had Glow Sticks

December 24, 2011

Pretty sure this is one of the cutest things I’ve seen in a long time.  I wish my kids had Aussie accents.

“And then there was a party.”

Merry Christmas everyone!

Sloanie B.

My sister nick-named baby girl Sloanie Baloney about 6 months ago.  So of course the boys took that and ran with it.  Her name has now been shortened to Sloanie B.  Not so bad, except that’s how they introduce her to everyone.  And then people ask what her middle name is.  Yeah.  It doesn’t start with a B.

But anyway, here’s some shots over the past few days of Sloanie B.

We think we’ll keep her!

She’s here.  Most of you who are friends with my husband on facebook have known for the last 10 days.

For the rest of you:

Sloane Cadét (pronounced Cah-day)* arrived at 9:19am on Wednesday, November 30th weighing in at 7lbs. 14oz and 20 3/4″ long (my biggest baby….but we won’t tell her that).

All is right in the world.  She’s beautiful and perfect.

And she only wakes up once in the night to eat.

Did I mention she’s beautiful and perfect?

We are so blessed, she is oh so loved by her three biggest protectors, and she already has Daddy wrapped around her finger.

Oh yeah.  And she has delicious cheeks.

*Cadét is Josh’s french grandmother’s maiden name.  She has tons of stories about growing up in France during the war and I’ve always thought it was a beautiful name.  I looked up the literal meaning of cadet in french and it actually means “youngest child”.  How cool is that! (And yes, Sloane will always be our youngest child……our family is complete).
