Introducing Katherine Therese

After exactly 41 weeks of gestating Katherine Therese finally decided that it was time to make her appearance. She was born at 5:50PM on Sunday. Katherine, weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces and was 20 1/4 inches long.

Because the baby arrived before visiting hours at the hospital were over the girls and my parents got to come and meet her a little less than an hour after she was born.
 Ellie took a few days to warm up to being a big sister.  She liked the baby, but she wasn't interested in giving her a kiss the first two days.  Katie's first morning home was when Ellie finally decided that she really liked her baby sister.
 Madeline took to being a big sister again very well.  She couldn't wait to hold her and every day she gets off the bus and wants to hold her baby sister.
Bryan, despite the total lack of pictures proving that he was actually at the hospital, was there the entire time.  This blurry picture of him handing Katie to Madeline is the only picture we have of him and the baby at the hospital.  I have no idea how we didn't get a picture of him and the baby or of the three of us.   We're chalking it up to the fact that my labor went very fast and we just didn't think of these things.  I was actually beginning to push when I had to ask him to grab the video camera and the other camera so we'd have pictures.

In a few more days I hope to blog a bit more about Katie's birth and first week.  Things are going very well with the baby. She already has us wrapped around her finger and seems quite content with all of us doting on her.


  1. Hooray! I was hoping your blog silence meant that baby had arrived. Did you go into labor naturally (I hope so!)?

    She is gorgeous! Congratulations!

  2. Congrats! Love her name and she is so precious! I'm sure she is loved by all and will be spoiled by all!
