We’re so happy to announce the newest addition to our family! Mara Noelle joined us Kirks on the 16th. We’re all in love, and the boys have been so sweet and enamored with her.

Even at a nice 8lbs 8oz, she still feels tiny to me (and conversely, the kids seem gigantic). And she’s super cute, so I’ll probably be posting/Instagram-ing tons of pictures of her from here on out!
