Zany Baby #3 has finally made her appearance!

I am so happy to announce that our third Zany baby has finally arrived!

Name: Silly Jilly
Birthday: January 4, 2010
Height: 19 1/2 inches
Weight: 6 lbs. and 14 oz.



Going from two young kids to three has been challenging and the past week and a half has felt like a blurred whirl wind of emotions! For how small Silly Jilly is she sure does make a huge impact on our lives!

Wacky Zacky has been so loving and gentle with his little sister. He loves to sit and hold her whenever he can. The two biggest questions he has had for us has been "How did the baby get out of Mommy's tummy?" and "Was the baby born in the pink PJ's she wore home from the hospital?"



Zany Janie, while she's not quite as gentle as her big brother, loves to hold and kiss Silly Jilly. To my surprise she has only mentioned once that she doesn't want a "Baby Sissy". By this time I would have guessed she would have said it 50 times! She's willing to keep her around knowing in the future she will be able to help teach her to dance and sing her ABC's.


Papa Z has fallen in love with his beautiful baby daughter and reality is starting to set in that the boys are out numbered in our house! He has been a wonderful and loving father and husband and has had to do practically everything because I'm nearly useless since having a C-section.

As for me...I'm hanging in there. I can't even begin to describe the love I have for my family. Even though it's not easy and I feel exhausted all the time I would not trade this experience for anything in the world!

oh joy! such a fine family. My family has the same sex and spacing (I believe) - I'm closest to big brother! My (older) sister is a Jill, never Jilly, though! So happy you're home! xxoo {:-D
