Our Baby Girl

Wednesday we welcomed Abigail Charlotte Lodge into our family. She was born 1:59 PM (via C-section) weighing 8 lb 5 oz and is 18 1/2 inches long. We were both released from the hospital today and are very glad to be home! The boys are very excited about their new "baby Abby" and so far have been very good with her. Here's a few pictures from the last few days...




(no she is not actually orange, the coloring is weird and I don't know how to fix it...but at least you can see her eyes!)

Sam's gift for his new baby sister...a butterfly crown. He was so excited to give it to her!

This is about as close as Andrew likes to get to her at this point...
Well, there's a brief intro to our newest addition. So far she is a fairly mellow baby and has tolerated her brother's craziness very well! We are so excited to have her in our family!
