Evelyn is one week old today.  We are all completely enamored of her.  Charlotte seems particularly incapable of bestowing upon her sister enough kisses.  Hardly ten minutes goes by without her requesting to kiss our little hazelnut.

Naturally, Donald and I understand.  Hardly ten minutes goes by without us showering Evie with kisses too.  There is something indescribably sweet about a brand-new baby that we all seem to find irresistible.

** Charlotte is three years and three months old.  Evie is one week old.

    She is perfect! Thank you for sharing your joy. Babies are the truest reminder of the miracle of life and I still can’t believe all that your family endured to get to this moment.

    Aw.  What great hair!  I’m going to have to go back and look at Charlotte again as a newborn.  I do not remember hair like this but it may be my memory.
    So glad you are all right!  Enjoy these days.  Now you know how fast they go.  ;(

    Oh my word! You make such lovely babies!

    Awwww :) What a great head of hair! Also, I notice her skin is a bit dry and peely - my now 7 week olds was like that and I found coconut oil really helped it stay moist until he lost that layer of skin :)

    Momiss - Charlotte did NOT have the head of hair that Evelyn has!  She had very fine, very short dark hair.  It turned reddish for a few months, then she balded and when her hair grew back in it was blonde.  Evie’s hair is much longer, much thicker, and much darker.  It really amazes me how different the two are lol.

    Emily - Thanks for the heads up about coconut oil!

    *sniff* I am just so proud of you. Makes me feel a bit weepy. She is gorgeous, and so very alert!!

    Tomorrow, we will only have the state of Texas between us. Jude and I will be in Louisiana for a couple of weeks and I so wish we could head your way for a play date and baby cuddles!! Likely not gonna happen, but a girl can dream her newborn dreams, can’t she??

    I have always loved the name Evelyn, and seeing you call her Evie just makes me love it more! This picture just so perfectly captures everything brand new about her. I am officially in love. You did good! :-D

    She is just beautiful!  Enjoy, enjoy.  What a special time for your family.

  22. By Karen on November 16, 2012

    She is perfection! Congratulations, I’m so happy for you! Seeing her picture makes me more impatient for March and the birth of our little girl. (Reading about your labor somehow didn’t have the same effect! ;-> )I love reading about how Charlotte is responding to her little sister! SO sweet….

  23. By Sarah Christensen on November 16, 2012

    Karen - If it’s any help, once my labor got started it took off =)  I ended up with forty-something hours of prodromal labor, which was exhausting but not particularly painful, and then I kicked into gear and four hours later had a baby =)

  24. By on November 16, 2012

    Oh love, love!! Congratulations to you all. She looks scrumptious. Happy to only have 3 more months to have to wait for my little kissable smoosh to get here - especially if you are going to be showing us pictures and giving new baby updates!!

    She is beautiful! Congrats Sarah! I am so excited for you and your family!  xoxo
