she's here!!!

i was having some trouble with the blog...posting pictures! i got that figured out (by adding another author...just myself under a different email address i already had) and now i can post! yahoo!!!

Camryn Elaine was born on Sunday Nov. 18th, at 12:33 am, she weighed 8lbs 3 oz and was 21.5 inches long.  (although when we went to her first dr appointment on the following tuesday she was only 20 inches long...riddle me that!)  i am never very sure the hospital measurement is very accurate because the baby is squalling and moving around so much!

fresh from birthing...


mom and baby

the kids came for a visit later on sunday, after church, and they were lucky enough to be there when the cookie lady came! what a great day! a new sister AND a cookie? awesome!

avery could not be any more smitten with a baby...seriously...it's serious love we have going on over here

papa lewi with camryn

this sums up the way we felt that day...sleepy:)  since she was born in the wee hours of the morning, not much sleep was had!

i'll do a full post next for those that want to know the whole shebang story...in the meantime, we are so happy to be loving our little girl, she's a week old today and is doing really well! we are getting to know each other and learning more everyday! she is eating like a champ and i am feeling good, just normal tired:) and  very happy to have her here.
