a little introduction

on december 30th, 2010, we welcomed our sweet little girl, adelaide marjorie mcdowell. we're going to call her ada for short. she was 8 pounds 8 ounces and 21.5 inches, just a little bit bigger than her older brother was at birth. looking at her now, i can't remember finn ever being that tiny. she is just amazing. calm in fact. i honestly could not have asked for a more perfect newborn to join our family. she eats, sleeps, poops, and sleeps some more. while the hours of 11pm until 6am aren't necessarily the most enjoyable times, i do get a large chunk of sleep with a baby perched upon my chest. i would definitely prefer to get an unencumbered eight hours of sleep, but i can't be picky. i have a baby that sleeps a lot and a 2 year old that sleeps in. when he doesn't sleep in, he still has this crazy idea in his mind that he can't leave the confines of his bed. fantastic! these adventures in having two children are exciting.
