Agnes: Life has Changed

Our little girl is one week old today. Amazing how much can change in a week!!

She has middle names now too: Agnes Sophia Rose Brock, born 6th March 2011 at 11:28am. She weighed 7 lbs, 15.5 ounces at birth, and 20 grams more five days later! (most babies lose weight the first week) Not our lamb, though--cleanest burper you ever saw, doesn't lose a drop!

Here's Caleb and Daddy looking at old baby photos and connecting himself with the little bundle in his arms--best brother you could ask for so far! Adam...he's coming around, gives the baby kisses and his typical greeting, the hand over the mouth, but mostly he's his own man.

Life is going well, and with all the extra hands around we are settling in, eating well, sleeping just enough and relishing in the quiet moments to hold and cuddle new life, so recently still tucked away inside my body. It really is a miracle, and we're grateful for every little thing that is new, that we are reminded of about the boys and their early days, that we need to adjust to because of this new life.

Speaking of which: I need to go to bed! I'll try to post some more soon...

So happy for you all. The Draycotts and we have been trying to imagine the changes in the Brock household with a baby girl. =)
