Big sister Chloe, welcomed the newest member of the family on her birthday.
Baby Joelle Elizabeth not only shares a birthday with her sister, but they are both little leaplings.
Both born February 29th, four years apart.
Not due until March 17th, Joelle came a little early to join her seven brothers and sisters.
It doesn't look like she will be in want of love and hugs anytime soon.
Joelle came into the world with very dark hair, at the same weight as her momma did (6 lbs. 7 oz.) and looking (in my opinion) much like her momma did at birth. She needed a little encouragement to let out a big cry after birth and still needs to see those bilirubin numbers drop but she is doing just fine.
A local hospital and paper shared this special leap day birth noting that the delivery doctor is a leap day baby as well :)
We celebrated Chloe's birthday on the 28th and Caleb turned 8 on March 4th. PopPop John got to watch Silas play in a soccer tournament and we even had a late winter snow that cleared up by afternoon.
I wrapped up the week with a special outing to the Philadelphia Flower Show with dear friends.
The theme this year is National Parks and it was all so beautiful!
and... I even managed to get this post prepared!
Happy Sunday, sweet blogging friends!
