A week early and a little unprepared (my water broke in the middle of the night!), Monday we became a family of four. Chris and I rushed around the house at 3am showering, packing a hospital bag, and making arrangements for his mom to come stay with Greta. We made it to the hospital eventually and our little girl was born at 12:33pm.
We named her Faye Andrea Marcum. I’ve loved the name, Faye, forever (okay, since watching That Thing You Do as a tween) and it was on our list when Greta was due to arrive, too. She is a perfect Faye. We like to use family names for middle names (and all of our middle names start with “A”) so Andrea is after my sweet little sister. We are naturally exhausted over here, but so happy and so in love. Greta is over the moon about her new sister, although struggling to remember her name. She gives her countless hugs and kisses all day long and is turning out to be the best little helper when it comes to grabbing diapers or wipes…or my water bottle just as I start nursing. We are settling into our new life over here–and it’s a good one. We still have a nursery to put together, so things won’t be too quiet for long.
