Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day, so we decided to take the girls out for some pictures with the pumpkins. It was a bit too windy for Mackenzie, so the photo shoot only lasted about 5 minutes. Isabella really liked playing with all the pumpkins. She thought they were all basketballs! This will probably really confuse her when we go to carve the jack-o-lantern.
It's another girl!!! We were blessed with our newest daughter, Mackenzie Elizabeth, early Tuesday morning, October 2nd. She arrived at 7:40 am weighing a whopping 8lbs & stretching out to 19-1/2 inches long. As you all know, we were scheduled to go into the hospital at 5am so that I could be induced, but Mackenzie must have already known that was her day to be brought into the world. After having strong contractions throughout the night, we headed to the hospital a bit earlier than planned. I checked in at 4:45 am, already 4-5 cm dilated. By the time the nurses were able to get me into a room, get all of my paperwork complete, & set me up on an IV, I was already 7 cm & beyond ready to have an epidural. It barely had time to go into effect because only 15 minutes later I was complete & ready to start pushing. After 5 minutes of pushing we got to meet our newest little miracle. And now, after much anticipation, we would like all of you to meet her as well.
