I just finished putting our 3-year old daughter down for a nap when I grabbed my laptop and sat down on the couch next to my wife, who is fast asleep after being up for over 48 hours. I started typing this post with one hand – my other hand is cradling our newborn baby girl like a football. The three girls in my life are all sound asleep after an exhausting few days.
I am thrilled to announce that our 2nd daughter was born on Wednesday morning at 6:02 AM. Both mom and baby are healthy and happy to be home. Our oldest daughter is pretty excited to be a big sister and to “help” mommy out with the baby.
Life just got interesting again at the Engen house 🙂
