Announcing.......


She is here! Myra Joanne arrived at 7:21 am on Oct. 4th. She was 7 lbs 15 oz and 19 inches long. So she is our second tallest (Ashton was 19 1/2 inches) and the second smallest (Elaine was 6 lbs 1 oz - at 4 weeks early.) Sorry it has taken me a while to post, but I am still in the hospital.....no Internet. Things went well and we are both doing good. Here are some pictures of her. She has chubby cheeks and dark hair. We think she is a combo of mom and dad - but leaning more towards mom.



Ashton was not too impressed with her the first day, only caring about missing mom. Each day he pays more attention to her. The kids are having fun with their grandparents. Ashton held her briefly today. Vi is excited to show Myra the room they share.

I spent a long day on Thursday trying to get my blood pressure up. It was really low and I was a little disoriented because of it. I had a more difficult time even holding Myra. She is a lot of fun. Opening her eyes more and more each day. Why are babies' schedules always backwards? She is eating good and all of that. I am feeling pretty good considering everything. I definitely have to remember my drugs though! Ouchie!

Thanks to everyone who has and will help out the family with dinners and such. Thank you also to our friends and family who visited us at the hospital. We are glad she is here!
