Kiss me, Kate

We were thrilled to welcome Katherine Paige into our family on the 9th. She arrived without incident and weighed in at 6 lbs 14 oz and was 19 1/2 inches. After having very eventful deliveries with the other four kids, it was refreshing to avoid such nasties as forceps, chest compressions, ICU stays, etc. We feel very blessed that Kate has arrived healthy and in perfect form. The kids are loving her up and taking turns holding her. Two days ago while Kate was at the hospital, Megan was busy nesting here at the house. She set up the pack and play crib with full bedding as well as the car seat all on her own.



Caught her with the eyes opened




Ready to travel




The girls put in a lot of work this week but are looking great.





I love grasping reflex

That is So classic about Megan setting up the crib by herself! Go Megan Go!! I'm sure Abby made her a sign or something too. I love the picture of Kate in her carseat...she's so little

Love how tiny she is. I don't think she is going to make it to 24 lbs by 4 months. Hopefully she'll grow some cheeks though.

Laura said...

Definitely we need some cheeks. She needs to catch up with her two cousins.
