Welcome to the world, Violet Jane!

Yesterday we welcomed our little Poppyseed into the world!

Poppyseed turned out to be a girl!  Lola was right.  🙂  We named her Violet Jane.  But, on the blog we will probably just keep calling her Poppyseed.

Why Violet and why Jane?

I chose this name for our wee one because they are both family names.  Violet is from my father’s side, and Jane from my mother’s.  My grandmother’s name is Elsie Violet, and my mother’s name is Mary Jane.

Lola is very tired, but soon I want to type up our birth story.  Oatmeal and I had hoped for a natural birth, and it ended up working out!  For now, I’m too tired to really type so I’m going to leave it at that and include some pictures.
