Little Chloe Pearl Anderson was born yesterday, Wednesday May 18th, at 9:48 a.m. weighing 6 lbs 15 oz and measuring 19 inches.
As you can see, little Chloe is perfect in every way!! :) She has a full head of beautiful, silky brown hair, more than any of our other babies have had. She nurses like a champ, and is very alert and content when she is not peacefully snoozing. It seems like she has always been part of our family, and not like she was born just yesterday.
We are all smitten with her, of course. Such a precious surprise after we were all rather sure we were having another little boy. So much so, that we had literally zero baby girl clothes on hand, as we had given them all away after two boys in a row. Grandma and the girls had fun going shopping for their sweet little sister.
Oldest proudly loving on youngest - makes my heart skip a beat!
Becca - I'm glad she likes having her pictures taken again
Boaz is beyond thrilled with Chloe. We have never had issues with siblings being jealous of a new baby, but
he takes it to a whole new level. He sings songs to her, and about her, admires her tiny fingers and toes, strokes her hair, and is just completely in awe of her. The only time he got mad was when he woke from his nap, and found Anna sitting on the sofa with me, holding "his" baby, and wailed "I want to hold it! I want to hold it!"
Thank you for your prayers for a safe delivery. The labor was pretty easy until the very end, which was challenging because Chloe was born with BOTH her hands up by her face. (More on that in a separate blog post with the detailed birth story.) We are joking she was trying to plug her ears, knowing she had eight older, loud siblings. In fact, if you look carefully, you can see that this is how she still sleeps.
