the day before thanksgiving, an event we had been waiting for a long time to occur finally happened: gemma norton was born! we weren't able to rush to the hospital on day one but we took advantage of the holiday and visited gemma on the morning of thanksgiving. i am glad we didn't wait a second longer- she is beautiful.
violet especially has been waiting for gemma for a long time. so tender to see how little kids know how to treat newborns.
ivy wasn't quite as interested- she just wanted more eddie time. now she is in full-blown "baby crazy" stage where she is obsessed with babies. had this all happened a few months later, gemma would be flinching still with ivy around.
