Our Neice Kaelyn Marie is finally here!

Lauren was suppose to be induced on Saturday at 8am...well baby Kaelyn + God (of course) had different plans. Lauren labored all night and finally at about 5am said, "I cant do this any longer." Lauren was given her epidural at 8am. Praise God!!!! We saw a completely different woman. A couple hours passed and the doctor checked her...she was 7 centimeters dilated and almost ready.

Around 12:45pm Lauren really felt like she needed to start pushing...sure enough she was 10 centimeters +1 dilated and 100% effaced. Ready to go at 1pm. After a couple pushes and 16 minutes, little Kaelyn was finally here! And the best thing about it was that I got to be a part of it. What a miracle to see such a gift from above just handed to us! She weighed in at 8.3 ounces and 20 1/2 centimeters long. Hard to believe Lauren had that big of a baby in her little belly. Lauren definitely set the standards high for Lindsey and I.

Kaelyn is a sweet little thing with a great set of lungs on her. She takes after her mother. We are looking forward to her coming home today sometime and to watch her grow into a beautiful girl.

Kenny and I are soaking up the babies and enjoying being Uncle Kenny and Aunt Kristen or KK!

We will post more pictures once I can gather all the other cameras and download them!
Hope everyone is having a great start to your new year!
May God Bless you in 2010!
