On September 28th we welcomed the newest member of our family, miss McKinely Rose made her debut appearance at 7:05 am at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, weighing 7 lbs 14 oz and measuring 20 in. That's right, we had a girl!! I was 98% positive that we were having a boy, and even though we didn't find out the gender before hand, Kevin was pretty positive too. The only one who stayed firm with a vote for a girl was Kassidy. She prayed for a sister the whole time and was certain that's what we were getting. She was right!
I went into labor at 1:30 am when my water broke. I called my aunt to come over and be with the kids and we arrived at the hospital at 4 am. I was dilated to 8 cm when we got there and I quickly requested my epidural :) It was a short couple hours before baby girl came into the world. We were so thrilled to find out she was a girl! We wanted to be surprised, and we sure were. Kevin was a great support to me through all the labor and delivery.
Here's a picture overload from our hospital stay. McKinley has been such a joy to have in our family this past week! We love her to pieces and feel so blessed to be her parents. Kassidy loves her sister so much and asks to hold her every spare minute she can. Korbin still hasn't asked to hold her and keeps calling her "Luke" which is my brother's little boy. I think he thinks she's going to go away soon and isn't a permanent fixture in our family. But he's not been aggressive or anything so I'm sure he'll adapt. We are all doing well, just a little sleep deprived, but well. More posts to come!
She has hair!!
Proud papa :)
I can't believe I have 3 kids...
I love this picture of my two girls. It shows how excited Kassidy was to have a sister.
This nurse was too cute and let Kassidy do a check up on McKinley and give her first bath.
Going home! Can't believe we get to keep her :)
