Crazy Miraculous Day

Well, after a little more stress getting the baby here, not progressing quickly as we thought, all did turn out well and both Mom, baby, Dad and happy brother and sisters are all doing well.

It truly is a miracle as a lot of you know to see a new little person come into this world and suddenly take that first breath of life. Amazing! I was chanting X-Y, X-Y, X-Y as we approached the final push---BUT it didn't help.

We have girl number three! No name yet as we were fairly focused on baby boy. As for other stats, well we decided to play it safe and not post info just in case, but look for a separate email or you'll hear it through the grapevine. Suffice it to say she was not quite as heavy as CT but comes in as #2 in weight/length.

As the kids came in the room and we asked them to tell us whether they thought the baby was boy/girl, they all went boy and I told CT it was still just me and him, to which he later commented "We'll still love her anyway." and Madison fairly quickly remarked, "Dang it" cause she knows she'll eventually be sharing a room with "2" sisters. Megan well she just enjoys looking and holding teh baby. CT does indeed like the idea of having his own room in the future too.

So here she is moments after bath and as the bows were pulled out, I said she may be a girl but Carter and I get to choose the color---I knew what color he'd go for. . .no not for BYU (as that only works when watching an actual sports game) but rather blue for Spiderman or Superman--take your pick. And yes, he is very aware of supergirl and spidergirl.

More later and finished scrapbook pages soon with the very enjoyable group of med students and 1 year RNs, we were blessed in many ways today.

She is so precious. You have a very cute family. Tell your little guy that being the only boy does have its perks. The room thing is one of the best.
