Our baby girl is here!

Well our newest baby girl was born January 26th at 1:33am. She was 8lbs 10oz and 21 in. Having her two weeks early was really a good thing. Buster got to watch her be born and he was very excited about it. Sweetpea was so cute at the hospital while I was in labor, she walked me up and down the halls to get things going. I was really happy with her reaction when Gumpy and Moogy brought her in to see the baby after the birth. The baby and I are both doing great. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers :)
We almost escaped the hospital Saturday at 7:00pm, but we ended up having to stay over night again because the baby had an elevated bilirubin count. That next day there was really slow and we finally got out at 2:30 on Sunday.

A few thoughts and happenings?

Well 6 days now until I will be induced, and I am feeling excited and a little nervous. I really don't feel prepared to be the mother of 3 children, but I'm sure in time I will figure it out. I'm just trying to make sure we have everything ready for the baby.

Last weekend we took the kids to see The Pirates who don't do anything. It was sweetpea's first time at the movie theater and she actually did really well. Buster had his 4.5 year check up on Wednesday and he now weighs 50lbs. My little boy is growing up so fast I can't believe how the time has gone. He is really excited about the new baby, and I think he will be a good little helper. Anyways our baby will be here really soon and I will update as soon as I can :) If you think of us next weekend say a prayer for us that everything will go really well.

Baby news!

Well I had an ultrasound today to check our babies size. She was measuring in at 7lbs 1oz, so my CNM went ahead and scheduled my induction for January 25th. I will be 38 weeks that day, and hopefully the baby will be smaller than sweetpea was. The ultrasound was fun because the baby has hair now and chubby cheeks. We can't wait to see her.
