Happy birthday, Mila Jane!

She’s heeee-ere!

World, meet my little Mila Jane! (Pronounced MEE-la.)

She was born last night in a super-speedy birth that barely had us to the hospital in time! (I’ll post her birth story soon.) We are loving her smushy little face and all her newborn-ness! She looks SO much like her brother did as a baby – who by the way, was SO excited to meet “Sissy.”

We are all happy and healthy and so, so thankful.

By the way, don’t touch that dial!

I have so much before-and-after goodness coming to you here over the next few weeks, so make sure you keep checking in just like normal!

Thanks for all your sweet thoughts as we’ve been preparing for this sweet girl! (UPDATE: See Mila’s birth story part 1 and part 2.)
