Sisterly Love

Allie loves her baby sister. When she wakes up each morning, the first thing she wants to do is see her. She loves to give her hugs and kisses and tickle her. She does a great job helping give her a bath and change her diaper.

I hope it keeps up, she seems to be adjusting really well. Too good to be true almost! Here are a few photos of the girls.

Kate Allison

Better late than never.....

Kate Allison was born at 12:25 on Monday, July 20th. We arrived at the hospital around 10:00 am to get prepped for surgery. The section went great and Kate was perfect. She was smaller than I expected, since I had an ultrasound 10 days earlier and they estimated she was 6 pounds and 9 ounces. So we thought she would be over 7 pounds by birth!

The rest of the day was a little fuzzy since I was so doped up on morphine for the pain. We had tons of friends and family there to welcome Kate, but nobody was more excited than her big sister!

I was in a good bit of pain for the rest of the day and we managed to get some sleep that night. Tuesday brought more visitors, less sleep and more pain. Luckily we were discharged Wednesday.

It's been an adjustment, having 2 kiddos to take care of. Kate is a good baby, but sometimes Allie gives us a run for our money! But we wouldn't change it for anything:)
