Miss Penelope Joy Seitler is here!


Little Penny was born at home at 1:09 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17th. She weighed (believe it or not) 9 lbs. 4 oz. and she was 20 inches long. She was my biggest baby so far! Katie was 7 lbs. 13 oz. and Joshua was 8 lbs 11 oz. And Penny is the first one to come anywhere near her due date—just two days after I turned 40 weeks. She really surprised us! We expected that she would take her sweet time, but here she is! And she’s just as precious as can be…

More later, when this tired Mommy has had more sleep.

    I am so happy to see that someone has named their baby Penelope Joy. My mother named me that on Dec. 23, 1943. I was always called Penny but recently took pEneLopE joY as my artist name. May little Penny have as wonderful a life as I have had.
