Our Second Little Bird Has Hatched

Introducing our newest little bird to the blog, Lux Vivian Hoeft. Born March 9, 2017 at 12:35pm, 7 pounds, 5 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. Labor/delivery was a lot quicker than with Rowan but the recovery has taken a bit longer. Overall, everyone is healthy and adjusting pretty well to life as a family of four. We’ve had a lot of changes happen these last 4 weeks but I’ll get more into that later. Expect plenty of “catch-up” posts since I, obviously, took a nice long break to recover and settle in before blogging again.

We’re so in love with this little lady. Lux means “light” (or a measurement of light) and Vivian “life” and it couldn’t fit her more. She’s the sweetest little thing and I can’t wait to tell you more about her in future posts. She’s already changed quite a bit since I took these photos at 2 days old (1 day old in the color photo).

Thanks for following along on this newborn journey with us once again! We appreciate everyone who’s reached out over the past month via my social medias/phone/text/etc and we love you guys!
-Derek, Jessica, Rowan and Lux
