Baby Overload

Sorry, but I have a lot of sisters making requests who live to far away to snuggle with my little cutie so this is the next best thing I can do. 

 So tiny!
 Mostly she just sleeps. 
 First bath, which she never cried once (so unlike the boys)
 All snuggled and getting dry. 
 My favorite outfit. 
  She rarely cries, but last night she let me know we were done with pictures. You can really see her "abnormal" gumline in this shot too. 
Loves to be all snuggled up. So perfect.
Yesterday was my due date and it was so nice to ALREADY have her out. Now if I could only sleep on my stomach and for more than 3 hours in a row, life would be grand...

Getting there

We are slowing healing and surviving and taking it day by day. Tad stayed home with me yesterday and Linny just came up to help. In the meantime, take a look at how cute my baby was in the hospital.

Sweet Baby M!

Story: Saturday I started having some contractions late afternoon while I was trying to take a nap (I had stayed up WAY to late the night before watching North and South) I called my sister and talked to my brother in law (she was sleeping) and told him they should drive up. If the contractions stopped we could always just play games. I started timing my contractions and they were 3 minutes apart so I called Tad who had taken the boys to the church to run around the gym and give me some quiet. He came right home and soon after Linny arrived. We left after 6 for the hospital. We finally found where we check in and they didn't seem to think much of me being in labor, as I wasn't in a ton of pain or really acting like I was in labor. But after they hooked me up and check me, I was already at a 5, so I was admitted at about 7pm and wheeled over to Labor and Delivery. After one failed IV, they finally got one in and I was then able to get the epidural. At 8:35 I was at a 6 and they broke my waters. By 9:45 I was ready to push and at 10:07pm MK born. 
We got home from the hospital today, so I hope all goes well from here!

 Less than an hour old with proud daddy!
 After her bath. Up until this point, I though her hair was more brown, but its more blonde. 
 The next day the boys came to visit and loved holding and poking her.
