Evelyn and her siblings

Andrew and Sylvia have adjusted quite well to baby Evelyn. Sylvia is quite the helper by telling me when the baby is crying, putting in her paci, and wanting to hold her all the time. Andrew is helpful by telling me when the baby needs to be 'milked.' I think everyone has been a bit more emotional since the baby arrived. But it could also be due to being homebound with the new baby and frigid temperatures. Evelyn has been a rather good baby, a typical newborn in that she wants to held all the time which can make balancing life a little difficult.

Evelyn Joy!

Evelyn is already loved! Here are just a few pictures of family and friends who visited her shortly after her birth:

Happy birthday!

We are so happy to announce the birth of our daughter, Evelyn Joy! She was born February 9, 2015 at 6:06 AM (one day after her due date). She weighed 7 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long. We think she is absolutely beautiful and is living up to her middle name :) We praise God for this gift!
