Stella Stats & Facts

  • she's a pooper.  This chick poops a TON.  I don't remember my other kids pooping so much...
  • she's a fantastic nurser!  VERY efficient and quick!  Which is a good thing, since her 2 older sibs don't have much patience ;)
  • I've been asked a few times about her name- why "Estella" and not just "Stella?"  Estella was my great grandma's name- so her name on the birth certificate is "Estella" but we call her Stella.
  • We also call her Stellabella, Stells and Sister Stella ;)  I'm sure we'll come up with more nicknames as time goes on.
  • She is completely unfazed by loud noises... another good thing, since Maeve and Henry are anything but quiet!  ;)
  • She's in newborn diapers and clothing.  Both are a little big for her, but not too big to go out and get premie stuff. 
  • Her umbilical cord is still hanging on... I hate it :/  It makes me nervous- I hope it falls off soon...
  • She hates photo shoots.  I've tried a few times to get some nice pictures of her- she's awake in a flash, and usually pretty angry about being naked and in bright light.
  • she's a trooper for sure- big sis Maeve loves to stretch her legs out, play "this little piggy" with her toes, brush her hair, etc. 
  • She's been a part of this family since day one, but it blows my mind how awesome she "fits."  Does that make sense?  It's like she's always been here...
  • She's pretty much perfect! :)

Love her!!! You were right, there is nothing better than being a mom. Ashley, my Henry, is a blessing.
