The life and times of Patrick Burleson

Emily Grace Burleson

Posted on by Patrick

On Monday January 5, we welcomed Emily Grace Burleson to our family. She was born via a planned c-section at 3:58 PM and weighed in at 9 lbs 12.3 oz and was 19 in long. Maggie and Emily are doing very well.

As for me, I’m excited as I was when Brenden was born. The adrenaline rush from the birth didn’t wear off until around 2 or 3 in the morning. I maybe got a total of 3 hours of sleep last night, and that was certainly not contiguous. ( It doesn’t help that I quite possibly have the most uncomfortable sleeping surface in the history of the in the fold out chair that’s in our room )

I’ll keep this short as I know most of you just want to see the pictures.

Yay! Pictures! Maggie looks soooo beautiful in the photo where she is looking up at you! The photo of Brenden meeting Emily brought tears to my eyes. I am so very happy for the Burleson family and can’t wait to meet the new addition! 🙂

Hugs for you all!

Awww, she’s a cutie! So glad Brenden likes her, you’re lucky (Noah HATED his sister upon first meeting. Took him months to like her!)

Happy (early) birthday from us too!
