-- Lorelei's birth story
-- Lots of unforeseen post-birth drama (not much of which had anything to do with the birth or Lorelei)
-- Grammy and Papa Greg's visit (Chet's parents)
-- Sydney update
--Corn maze/pumpkin patch (two days before Lorelei was born)
There. I made a list, so now I HAVE to blog about those things! (Feel free to hold me accountable.)
For now I will let you know that Lorelei Ann Wyckoff was born October 17th at 1:18 p.m. She weighed 7 lbs, 7.4 oz, and was 19.75 inches long. As I suspected she would be, she is a pretty laid back baby (although right now she is exercising her lungs in the other room...poor Chet). She is such a blessing, and we are so proud she is our daughter! Here is a picture of her the day she was born, and again when she was three days old.

I show you these pictures so that you have something to compare her 1-month pictures to. Some of you may remember the monthly pictures I posted of Sydney. (Click here to see Syd's year in review.) I will do the same for Lorelei, but she will have a different "back drop" and will wear a white onesie with the corresponding month. Sydney wore different outfits for each picture, but always wore the same type of bow.
I'm not sure which "pose" I will go with each month in order to make the pictures look as similar as possible, but this one is my favorite. And since this is Month 1, I will go ahead and post all of the pictures that I thought turned out good! :-)
