Annabelle Jeanne Brown

Well, a lot has happened since I posted last..which is to be expected since I haven't posted anything since what, October!! Seriously. But the most exciting would have to be the birth of our first little girl, Annabelle Jeanne. She was born on the 15th of January at 5:53 AM and weighed in at 9lb 9oz and 21 inches long. She was born with the same cute cheeks as her brothers and a full head of hair. She was unique in that she has an extra finger on her left hand. It wasn't attached by bone to her hand so they just tied it off to cut off the blood supply and eventually it will just fall off. Pretty interesting. My sister Kathryn commented that she will have something fun and interesting to say when she plays 2 truths and a lie!! Kind-a funny. We are loving her and the addition she has made to our family. Jackson has really taken to her and loves to hold her and puts his finger in her mouth to "feed" her. Logan points to her, esp when she cries but is still a bit unsure about her.
Things are going well so far but right now she is pretty easy. I am sure things will get a bit more difficult as she gets older and requires more attention. But for now, I am enjoying each moment, especially those that I get alone with her during the night. I appreciate the family and friends around me that have been so supportive and helpful during this time of transition. Not to mention an amazing husband who knows how to take over and give me a break. I feel very blessed.
Here are a few pictures and I am sure there will be many more to come!! Enjoy!!
