Felix has arrived. Caution trigger newborn photos.

Felix was born Saturday September 6th. He is a joyful blessing. We are grateful to have him and that he was born alive. He was born 124 years to the day after his great grandfather 1890 to 2014. 

I was so happy his Oma wore this special shirt when she came to see him in the hospital. 

We are grateful for our blessings but we continue to miss the little big sister that watches from above.

Felix was born at 41 weeks 6 days. It was hard to go that long as my emotions warred against each other. Knowing increased risk and how horrible that 'risk' could be. And also knowing that if all went well it was better for our littlest one to be in as long as he needed to be. 

Here are a few pics of his first days...

Visits from his two biggest brothers

With Dad.

Getting an EKG thanks to his big sister. All looks good so far.

Ready to go home.

A double rainbow.

Home with the family.

With his tired mama.


  1. Congratulations! What a beautiful family you have!

  2. Congratulations em he is lovely, and although your family will never look as it should (missing one very special girl) it is beautiful in it's own way.

  3. Oh, Em, he's gorgeous! He looks so much like all your other babes and I noticed your Mum's shirt right away ...

    Rest well, and enjoy those newborn snuggles. Does Felix have a middle name? God bless you all on the arrival of your littlest rainbow baby!

  4. Love, love, love! Eva is such a big part of your life, I'm just so sorry that it's not in the physical sense. Big sister's influence on the EKG is beautiful and heartbreaking. Much love to you all...

  5. Congratulations, Em, he is beautiful. And a perfect name - it was on our short list for M and I just love it and what it means. And I love, love, love your mom's shirt. Eva the little big sister. Always remembered.

  6. Congratulations! You have a beautiful family <3 Thanks for sharing these precious pictures!

  7. Congratulations!!!!!! He is so very sweet! Love the family portrait!

  8. Beautiful baby, Anella. So glad the EKG or whatever its called shows that Felix is good in that regard.

  9. Felix is beautiful. Glad his EKG turned out all right.

  10. Felix is gorgeous. I'm glad he is here safely.

    1. Gretchen, darling I wasn't expecting you to look at these painful photos. Thank you. I'm so sorry your littlest man is missing. And your biggest one too.
