Our third daughter, Margaret Elizabeth, arrived at 1:58 am on Friday, March 10. She weighed 7 lbs, 10 oz, and was 19.5 inches long at birth.
Like both her sisters before her, she was born with a head of dark hair, beautiful delicate features, and oh-so-kissable cheeks.
She is adored by her parents and big sisters alike.
... and admiring Aunts and Uncles, too!
My heart is so full, and I'm so grateful that I get to have a newborn all over again.
In some ways it is harder to fit in the snuggle time and enjoy all the sweetness with a third child, when life is already so busy.
But in another way it is almost all the more sweet and poignant, because with each moment where my cheek is pressed up against hers, or each deep breath I take to breathe in her delicious aroma, I'm loving our little Molly but also enjoying the wash of memories of a baby Nell and a baby Ree not so very long ago.
Time is flying by all too quickly... this little lady is two weeks old already!
Life is a wonderful thing.
