Kate's Birth

Kate was born at 10:55 am via scheduled cesarean and came out crying and healthy.  It was a wonderful experience and she's just an absolute dream.  She weighed 7 lbs., 4 oz., and was 18 1/2 inches long.  She's eating and sleeping perfectly and we brought her home today!  

Here are some pictures of our first day.  I'll post more a little later.  We're settling in at home nicely.  Harper is in awe, I think.  She is being very sweet.

On our way to the hospital in the morning. 

Seeing Kate for the first time after she got cleaned up.  We both cried a little and it was very sweet.  I couldn't stop smiling

Getting checked by the nicu nurse-she did great!

Holding my Kate for the first time.  This was so different than last time; I got to hold her the whole time we were in recovery (unlike with Harper, when I had to wait several hours).  This was wonderful!  She latched immediately and we really bonded here.

The three of us

Brian and Kate

In our hospital room, sleeping soundly; she has those Harper lips!

I'll post some more pictures later.  Welcome home, Kate!
