Thursday, August 23rd, Johanna McKay Shiffler entered our lives. She was born at 10:18am, weighing 7.1 oz. Bobby thankfully rushed home the night before from a business trip to be with me during my contractions. Bobby and I felt blessed with how my labor turned out. We worked hard together that night! And Johanna came after 4 pushes, into the bright noisy world, completely healthy! And yes, Bobby's favorite name, Johanna, won. Thankfully it has really grown on me.
Daddy couldn't be any prouder. Two daughters-- who would of thought!
Yes, that excitement from Caroline is genuine. She was thrilled to have a real baby to take home.
Caroline is taking a picture of her new "pet". She loves to show Johanna her toys, "read" books to her, and pick her up (before her mommy stops her.)
