Introducing Emilia

On February 28th, after almost 2 days of labor, we got to meet Emilia Faustina. She weighed 7 lbs, 14 oz. and was 20.5 inches long.
Everyone asks me how Anastasia is adjusting. She has long loved and adored babies. She lights up when she sees one and asks me to find pictures and videos of them on Facebook. So she kisses Emilia and beeps her nose and holds her hand and plays with her tiny feet.
 Anastasia did not, however, like sharing me, so both her sisters and I have made time to focus more on her and remind her how much she is loved.
 Anastasia approves.


We began February recovering from the flu, so once we were better, we wanted to get out and went to the Domes to see the plants and trees and train display, this year focusing on monsters.
We spent most of February trying to catch up on any school work, mostly math, we got behind with when we had the flu.
I took Cecilia, Felicity, and Elizabeth to the touring production of The Lion King.
 Anastasia learned how to "shhhhhh" during Mass, and it was so cute and fun getting her to do it again.
 For Valentine's Day, we went to the JellyBelly Warehouse tour and stocked up on candy.
 We got almost completely all caught up and on schedule by the end of February, but being 9 months pregnant, I slowed down the second half of the month.
She wanted to go outside. Barefoot. In February.
