Our Newest Addition

On Monday, February 8th, at 12:45 a.m. our newest little addition made her appearance into the world! She weighed 8 pounds even and was 20 inches long. She is a joy to her mother (I don't think I have ever bonded with a baby quite like this one. She's a month old and still sleeping in my room--something I have NEVER done!) as well as the rest of the family. She'll be spoiled for sure!

When I downloaded the pictures, I forgot that you have to do them backwards, so the last picture should be the first.

Our Sweet Little Katherine Lea a.k.a. "Lady Kate"

Daddy was weighing Katherine with my midwife Cathy in the front left, my mom looking next to Chad, and Cathy's daughter Lisa looking on in the background. I couldn't ask for a better midwife than Cathy. She delivered 6 of my 8 children, and I love her to pieces!

  2. Congratulations Amanda. She is beautiful. Isn't great when you bond so well with the little one? I had one like that too. Take care of yourself.
