Keaton joins our family!

After 45 hours of labor with this little princess, she joined our family last Tuesday at 6:45pm. We were surprised and overjoyed she was a little girl (even after the doctor said, "he is here"--as they refer to all unknown babies as boys??). She weighed 7lbs 1oz and 20inches long. We came home the next day, as we were eager to be back with our little guy and have some family bonding! Porter is taking to the older brother role really well. He LOVES holding her, singing to her, bringing her blankets, and throwing away her diapers--our big helper!

She has had an eventful first week, attending her aunt Mimi's graduation, dinner out, doctors apt, walks, and lots of activity around the house. She is eating and sleeping like a champ (hope that continues!) and we are just loving our first days together with her and has a growing family.

more pics to come!

38 weeks!

Wow! hard to believe we are 38 weeks and will so shortly meet our new little addition to the fam! We have been in major purge and re-org mode around this house, as the last time we did it was 2 years ago prior Porter's arrival. Have to say, it feels great! also enjoying our days as a family of 3, and really trying to seize every minute we can with pman, as it is hard to imagine how our lives will change so soon. We went up to Whidbey last weekend for a little family weekend, which was so fun and so special. Just love my time with my two boys--and seeing porter in his development stage right now is such fun--he surprises us every day with what he says, comprehends, and understands--nothing gets past that kid!

We are so excited for this next transition--the baby is head down, which means we are going to get to try for a natural birth. And yes, I am trying for all-natural--actuallly really excited about it! My labor coach (JJ) has been great so far and we are prepping for the big day! Hospital bag is on its way to getting packed, baby nursery (which porter goes into and says good nite to each day) is back in shape, and the house is feeling ready (yet already crowded!)

Porter came into the world at 38 weeks, so have never been past this point! Entering new territory! Will keep everyone updated!
