Introducing Our Baby Girl, Violet

  First of all, thank you so much to everyone who participated in the Dream Home Guest Blogger Series! I loved peeking inside the favourite parts of your homes! During my little blogging break, I've been busy getting to know the newest member of the family. And she finally has a name... It took us just over two weeks to settle on one!
This is our little lady, Violet Elizabeth. Born May 21st at 8:36 am in Toronto, weighing 6 lbs 11 oz and measuring 18 inches long. She is perfect. 

Benjamin adores her and is a wonderful big brother. I am sure I will share way way too many photos of them over the next little while. Sorry in advance. 

Of course, adjusting to life as a family of four has had its ups and downs. Ben has moments of being a little clingier than usual, and had a few days where he seemed to be struggling a bit more with adjusting to all the change. His sleeping sucks even more than usual, too. I don't think I've ever had so little sleep (baby has days and nights mixed up, and Ben is a very active two-year-old by day). It was tough when Matt had to return to work (he took 6 work days off), but he will have more time off very soon. Anyway, despite being sleepy, I can't complain. I have two healthy, happy, sweet babies. Life is really wonderful. Matt and I feel super lucky. What a difference two years has made in our lives!
Now, I better get working on that nursery for real. It is a total mess. Fortunately, Violet sleeps with us right now ("sleeps," ha ha, wishful thinking). But I still want to get it all set up so we can hang out in there and eventually start having her nap in there occasionally. The rest of the house is full of unfinished projects too -- but we have made progress, and I can't wait to show you!

See you very soon,
Jenny xo

  9. I love her name. My children are 2 1/2 years apart too ( boy and girl ) . They have always been great friends. Meg adores her big brother and Jay thinks his little sister is ok -he actually adores her too! Hope you get more sleep, it gets easier. Blessings to you and your family. They are adorable.

  10. Nice to meet you sweet Violet! Jenny, Violet's portrait (1st pic) is so lovely with her wrapped in pink lace. And you can just tell by looking at Ben with Violet that he'll be a caring big brother watching out for her over the years. A sweet family indeed. Robin

  11. Congratulations, Jenny, she is adorable! They both are!
