Two weeks ago, Amelia Jane was born into this world. She weighed 10 lbs, 8 ozs, and 21.5 inches long. Oh baby! No wonder my stomach was so big!

Everything went smoothly, and she’s a darling. We’re getting accustomed to each other and working on sleeping schedules.   Carrie and Jason are packing all of our Etsy orders, and I’m just starting to come out of the haze that is the first 2 weeks to think about sketching and things other than how long it’s been since I’ve changed a diaper.

I’m hoping to have this fabulous photographer out of St. Louis come take some newborn pics, but so far the weather has been thwarting us! I have lots of props. Crayons, flower headbands and vintage blocks.   I’ve been trying to take some artsy photos, but sometimes it’s just nice to have someone else lend their artistic vision. And I’m not too great at manhandling the baby into position.

I’ll try not to make this a baby picture blog, but I wanted to share our great news!
