Elizabeth Mei

Elizabeth Mei was born Jan 22nd at 8:08 am She weighed 8 lbs
3 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long (just an inch shorter than her brother
and 9 0z smaller-- though she seems much littler than he ever was.)
She looks a lot like Henry though-- round face, good amounts of light
colored hair, and a sweet little chin.

She's named Elizabeth after my mother and me (and because we really
like traditional names) and the Mei is Chinese. It means beautiful
and little sister and since Henry was convinced that she needed to be
named "little sister" it seemed appropriate.

Labor and delivery went very smoothly-- hooray for epidurals! and I'm
feeling great now. Lizzy is doing well. She sure sleeps a lot and
her squeeks are really cute. Henry likes her lots and keeps exclaiming "she's so cute!" He was most amazed by her fingers "those are so little!" and jumps when she squeeks.

Look how little she is!!!

Congratulations, Anna and Dell! She is beautiful! I'm glad she is sleeping so much. They come out so little and grow so quickly. Little Peter will be six weeks old tomorrow and just looks huge to me compared to when he was born...

Congratulations Dunn family! You did good! She is a doll. Girls are fun. Anna you're gonna have SO much fun dressing her. And I'm sure little Henry already adores his baby sister! And when you can, try to get some sleep! I haven't figured that part out yet. :)

She is beautiful and you are right I do see Henry in her! I can't wait to meet in person. I have to keep reminding myself, "I don't want a baby, I don't want a baby." If I say it enough maybe it will be true!

Heidi said...
