Briella Rose Higgins

Time of arrival: 7:58am
Birth Weight: 7 lbs (same as West)
Birth length: 19.25 in (over 2 in shorter than West, she's our chubby little bean :)

After a week of trying and failing to find time to post about our newest family member, I realized I have an entire 2 hours at my disposal! In half hour chunks. In the middle of the night. Yay nighttime feedings!

I am very sorry I haven't posted earlier. Here, though, are some highlights from our hospital stay so you experience it right along with us!
Lots of blonde hair
Westly's first visit. He was excited to see us, but it scared him to see me in the hospital bed.
First glimpse of baby sister
Family of four, together for the first time!
Loved her first bath
Tired Daddy snuggling his princess
Great Grandma Grace
Three men and a baby :)
First kiss (of many) for baby sister. He is just in love with her :)
Giving baby loves
Out for a family walk
Fun games with Daddy on his 3rd visit
Going home

We are loving life this week, Paul still has one more week home before he returns to work. Thanks for your prayers, everything went so well. Our hospital stay felt like a relaxing vacation, and returning home has been even better, but more on that another time.
