Baby KC is here!

She arrived Wednesday morning at 11:07 and weighed in at 7 lbs., 13 oz. and was 20 inches long. I started into (real) labor about 2 am, we made it to the hospital just after 5 am. We had to wait almost 2 hours for a room and the epidural man (way too long), but it was smooth sailing after that. My epidural man was brilliant and the nurses were fantastic. My OB wandered in about 10:45 am and three contractions later, KC was here.

She's a sweet baby, with dark hair, and is already a chubby little thing.

Boo has taken this transition like a champ. She proudly talks about 'my sister'. She is not interested in holding KC yet, but I did finally get her to sit close to her for a picture. She is enthralled with KC's toes, and often says, "Look at those teeny-tiny little toes!" When KC cries, Boo demands, "Feed my sister!"
We had the girls give each other gifts the first time they were together. Boo gave KC a purple blanket that is just like her beloved pink blanket. And KC gave Boo a new baby doll that takes a bottle, laughs, cries, burps, and sleeps. It is the cutest doll, and Boo is in love with it.
Don't ask me why Boo is dressed like it is October. It's 90 degrees around here.

  1. What beautiful children! KL is a real doll, and we can't wait to come back to see you all again. Boo must have gotten Auntie M's thermostat - she usually stopped wearing sweatshirts when it got over 100. :-)

  4. Congratulations! She is absolutely adorable! She looks so much like Boo! I love her name, it is so cute. It was a name we had on our list as well. Good thing we didn't pick that one! :) Hope everything is going well. Let us know if there is anything we can do for you!

  6. Congratulations! KC is Beautiful! Having 2 is a lot of work, but so worth the effort when they are finally playing together! That is my favorite part! Hope you are feeling well... for me the second labor was 10 times easier than the first! Have fun and get some sleep!
    Love, Becky
