Kaitlyn Jane










...arrived last night, March 7, at 11:28 pm. She weighed 7 lbs, 12.6 oz, (get this) the EXACT same weight as Anna when she was born. To the tenth! She was 20 inches long.


Brianna did so great, and I got to be so proud of her all over again. Kaitlyn is precious, and it was hard to leave the hospital when I finally got booted at about 3 am this morning. I am so looking forward to introducing her to her older brothers and sister later today.

Thank you everyone for your support, well wishes, and patience as you checked in each day to find out which of these silly due dates would be the right one!

And Kaitlyn, welcome to our world, little one...

Congratulations!! She is so beautiful! I remember having Anna in the nursery, and she was such a joy. I can't wait to start watching Kaitlyn when she is old enough! I have been "lurking" on your blog for a while now, reading about your boys and the rest of the family, and have been checking everyday recently to find out if she was here yet!! and now she is. Congratulations again.

Would you believe I haven't been on the computer since Aubrey's nap yesterday? I sure don't. AND... when Mike aws checking his email last night I was pestering him to hang out with me and told him there was nothing new on any blogs!!! Oops.

I am SOOOO excited that my niece has made it to the outside. I hope to be able to meet her before she is walking!!! It's hard to picture any travel plans as my due date looms on the near future.

Brianna, I am glad you didn't have to labor all night. Hopefully you were able to get a little sleep last night.
