After a delayed induction on Friday morning, we returned to the hospital on Friday afternoon and had this darling little girl at 5:55 p.m.
She shocked us all by weighing in at 8lbs, 12oz.
We love her to pieces, and are so happy to all be home together.
And I am not pregnant anymore.
That picture of the two of you? Beautiful. Congratulations!
Congratulations! She's beautiful (and you look great, too).
Congratulations–she's just precious.
Janssen, you look amazing, and she's a perfect doll. And hooray for not being pregnant!
Yay! She is here and now the fun can begin. Relish in the joy that is NOT being pregnant. Congrats and blessings to all. Angie
She's beautiful, and you look fabulous. I have two December babies, and two December grandchildren, and three December siblings, and too many December nieces and nephews and in-laws to count. December is a joyous month for us in many ways! Congratulations.
Hooray! She is gorgeous. So happy for your little family (and that you're no longer pregnant. 🙂
Congratulations! I'd love to know her name if you want to share via email.

Wow Janssen! You make having a baby look like a piece of cake! ha! You are a doll and she is so cute! Congratulations to you and Bart!
Yay, congratulations! She has such scrumptious chubby cheeks, just like my babies. And you can lay on your back again! Hooray for that.
Adrienne @ Love in the Village says
oh my! her HAIR! such a lovely pair, you two!
Oh! I die! How sweet are those cheeks! Wish I could come over to squish that little thing and bring you a milkshake.
Congrats!! She is beautiful. No wonder you were done being pregnant you were carrying around a full size 2 month old!!! And you look far too beautiful for just having a baby. Forgive me for my jealousy 😉
You have the most darling babies! Congratulations!
So glad to hear all is well. So beautiful, both of you.

So sweet! I can't wait to hear her blog name! If you are nursing and want to obsess call me!
Her hair color matches yours exactly!! I was ecstatic when I saw her on Instagram! I kept checking all day long. Congratulations family of four! You're one of the cutest families I know (well, sort of know).

Congrats – she's so adorable. Love the cheeks 🙂 And I agree you look fabulous!
Congratulations! She is gorgeous. And, having three kids of varying sizes, I'm a firm believer that babies with a little more meat on them sleep better earlier. Hope it's true for you!
YAY! CONGRATS! That is so awesome and she is too lovely. I love all of her hair. My baby girl also surprised us by topping out at almost 9 pounds. Whew. I love your ending sentence. After both of my babies, once I realized I was no longer pregnant, I busted out into massive loads of tears. Yeah, I guess I don't like bring pregnant much. But who would when they have to go 42 weeks? Congrats again ~ hope the next few weeks go smoothly and you're able to rest. Look forward to seeing this little munchkin grow….
How wonderful! Congratulations! So thankful she's here safe and sound. And she looks so sweet. I especially love the picture of you two sleeping. She's an awesome Christmas present! 😀
Congratulations! You both are so beautiful!
Congratulations! She is just beautiful. I hope you are recovering well–the photo of you two sleeping together is lovely.
She is so very cute. Very many congratulations! I hope Ella is doing well with the changes. Hope you are doing well. I still cannot believe you had a baby that big. 🙂
Yay, she's here! Congratulations!!
Yea! Baby! She is precious. Welcome to the world little one.
Angela Noelle says
You are both so perfect in these photos!!! Yay, she's here.
She is beautiful and you look fantastic as well! Congratulations!!
There is nothing so magical. I am so happy for you! Her little face looks so kissable. How in tarnation did you fit such a big baby in such a tiny frame? My babies were 8.14 (except the premie), but I looked it! Where did you hide her? So, so excited for your little Christmas miracle.
She's beautiful! congrats all around.
Congratulations!! I am so very happy for you and your family. What a wonderful day/weekend/rest of forever.
You don't have permission to look that gorgeous hours postpartum.
She is a beautiful baby, Janssen. Can't wait to hear her blog name. I love those squishy cheeks. Congrats again!

Hooray!!! Congratulations! You and Baby both look gorgeous. 🙂
Congratulations! So cute. And that last line just cracked me up… you get a baby AND you don't have to be pregnant any more? Sweet. :o)
You look gorgeous and your sweet girl is just as darling as can be! So happy for you!
Congratulations. I can't wait to see them grow into the best of friends as sisters.
Congratulations! My goodness you look great. It took me so long to just myself into the shower, and I'm pretty sure I stayed in the hospital gown the whole time.

She is so beautiful! Congrats!
Such pretty pictures…I love those chubby cheeks!
And hooray for not being pregnant anymore! I distinctly remember those being the first words out of my mouth 2 1/2 years ago after I delivered B. That's the most important thing, right?!
