She is stunning and a chubby little one! By that beautifully round head, I am guessing a c-section?

Amy said...

Congrats! She's precious. That was a big baby-like T called our second baby, a "chunkus". He always said she didn't have joints, she had folds. Heather looks great-probably very relieved to have the baby out of her body and in her arms. Love her name. I think she looks like Braydon. Thanks for sharing pics. I know K and O are thrilled.

Seeing her picture brought immediate tears to our eyes. The pictures with the boys are so beautiful. A treasure. Good job Heather. Eight pounds is alot for a little Mama. I know it was tough. I have a feeling all that fades when you hold her!!!
I am in agreement with Amy...she looks like Braydon. Especially the baby picture where he is attached to Robert's nose!
Congratulations to the entire J-M family.
Love,
Carol
