Anne: a bit of background

7 pounds 9 ounces, 20 inches long

I've loved the name Anne for forever - it's my grandmother's name as well as my sister's middle name.  Laurel's middle name is my other sister's first name.  I know people often look to their ancestors for names, but my sisters are my favorite people, and I've loved naming my daughters partly after them.

Anne is a wonderful baby; I'm finally getting a bit of quality sleep at nights since she'll have at least one 4 hour stretch of sleep.  I've only managed one outing with all three kids, and that was a quick trip to the library. I can't imagine taking all three of them grocery shopping and plan on avoiding that as much as possible!

Sleep is a hot commodity




Luke's working hard for the garden

Thank you, UVU, for 80 hours of birth leave!  Which translates into Luke finding ever more creative spots to cultivate above and beyond the 4 raised beds.



How to get back to your pre-pregnancy weight in 10 days or less!

Juice fast.

Because you've been hit with a violent stomach flu. 

Yuck.

Anne's Here

Whether it was the full moon, a low pressure weather system, or just a bit of inherited Petertammenson impatience, Anne decided to join us 19 days early on Saturday! Here are some photos (note: her entire face and head were bruised while making her dramatic exit, poor kid):

You know what stinks?

When you buy 4 beautiful bunches of organic rainbow chard, and then your hubby and you come down with a stomach bug that lasts for days and by the time you feel like eating something besides applesauce, the chard has clearly passed its use-by date.
