Introducing Kate!

6 lbs. 5 oz. 18 3/4"

Born on Aug. 8th, at 7:00 pm

I can't believe she's finally here!
She's a snuggler! I really can't complain too much, she's a great sleeper. She's been sleeping great at night, waking up only once or twice. She's happy & content as long as she's full. She does have a great set of lungs & lets me know when she's hungry.

Ethan absolutely adores her! Today he sat on the couch and watched Rio & held Kate. He's been a big helper!

These two keep each other entertained. They've been playing so well together since I've been home... it's a miracle!! Makelle loves to hold her & look at her & loves helping me by getting diapers & nursing pads & water. Kyler will poke at her head & repeat "baby, baby, baby..." over & over & over. He definitely has a spot for Kate in his heart. When all the kids are getting a turn holding her, Kyler will sit on the couch & hold out his arms. Then he'll kiss her head & hold her for a minute. It's very sweet!

Lexi is my little mom. She is constantly asking to hold her. She is always asking where she is, when she's going to wake up & if she's done eating.

Our five adorable kids!

Recovery has been the hardest with this one. I have one AMAZING husband who has stayed home & taken over duties. I have amazing neighbors, friends & family who have brought dinners & taken kids. THANK YOU! I couldn't have made it without you. I'm finally feeling about 80% now & have started a "normal" routine with all 5 kids.

Lexi has started pre-school & Ethan starts 1st grade tomorrow, so I will be posting more soon. Time flies so fast!
