Introducing...

Addison Reese Rohlfs



Born: March 17th at 6:53 p.m.
Length: 19.5 inches
Weight: 6 lbs. 7 oz. (I KNOW! What happened to that big baby the doc was predicting???)

I came home Saturday night right after her 24 hour PKU test. I didn't want to stay any longer - I'd rather recoup at home. Still adjusting, so I apologize if I haven't called or e-mailed. I can barely get online in-between naps and alternating the schedule with Scott. Plus, I forgot about how much laundry one little newborn produces. Thank goodness he's home for a few days so that I can recoup a little bit. I also forgot how wonderful it is to have a newborn. To sum it up: we're in love!

Maggie is doing well and loves her baby sister. The jury is still out if she still likes Scott and I. LOL! But, we're trying to do some stuff with her this week so that she knows she's still very special to us.



I'll post more photos and the birth story later. Maggie just went to school and Addie is taking a nap, so I need to get some sleep. (Had about 2 hours last night)

Oh, and I'm also debating selling my Kenny Chesney tickets for Thursday. I want to go with Scott so badly but physically, I'm worried about going and I'm not sure I'm ready to leave Addie, yet. I just know I'll be drained and probably will want to be home. Never thought that would be the case. :(
