Third time’s the charm…

30 May

…literally!  She’s definitely our loveliest baby yet.  Don’t believe me?  Check out these pics of Josselyn Joelle!

She's so swollen from the birth, this is the only pic I am posting

I had wanted to include some pics of Bronwyn and Holly to compare.  I think Josselyn looks just like Bronwyn did, but with darker hair.  Also, without the weird nose… but it is late, and I am going to bed.  I will also write a more complete birth story later, but the highlights are that it took about 5 hours once contractions started, and the doctor didn’t make it in time to deliver her.  Unfortunate, since she was born with the cord around her neck, and I am pretty sure he could have had her released a little quicker than the nurse who did it (but she was wonderful and did the best she could). 

Josselyn is a super little nurser, and only lost 4 oz in the first 24 hrs.  She is already showing an aptitude for the cluster-feeding Olympics, taking it in turns to either eat or sleep for 5 and 6 hour stretches.  She has downy fine hair that is consistent with Bronwyn’s, but is dark like Holly’s, which makes for a very attractive baby!
