  28. Hi Sally! Ok, so you know sometimes you just tell people their baby is cute even if it’s not? Because let’s face it, not all babies are cute. But YOURS…wow, what a sweet little face and truly beautiful little thing. Funny, my middle name is Elizabeth and I was born at the end of September, too . Anyway, I’m so glad you have that rough labor experience behind you and wish you all the best in finding the new normal for your family. You deserve a break and I hope you can enjoy it!!

  29. Bless your heart– 32 hours of labor. It’s truly all worth it though. Precious little girl.

  30. Congratulations to you and your family!!!! She’s so cuuuute! <3 I'm sure Jude and Franklin are the proudest big bros. 🙂 Wishing you a quick recovery! Best wishes from far Serbia! 🙂
