hello world.

Hello world.
Meet miss Brooklyn Kate.
She came into the world fast and she is already a little bundle of joy.
She is fitting in quite nicely and is adored by everyone, even her brother who so desperately wanted her to be a boy.
Jude took one look at her and said, "So it's not a brother?" "That's ok, I still love her...Mom you look really skinny!" ... I may or may not have told him he was my favorite child. :)
Elisabeth is over the moon for this girl and while she was also hopeful for a brother she exclaimed, "Oh she is sooooooooo cute....I am so happy she is a girl!"
 Lyla is adjusting and loves to smother her with kisses and has given her her first nickname...Brookie pants.

She was 7lbs 12oz ... 19 inches long and as of now seems to have blue eyes.
We named her about 5 minutes before we left the hospital...her name comes from THIS song...
However her siblings may or may not be walking around the house signing THIS song.

She is lovely and my heart is full. Thanks so much to everyone for all the kind words and warm wishes!!
