She Has Arrived!

We'd like to welcome our newest member of the family...Adalyn Makenna arrived on Thursday, November 18th at 12:14pm. She weighed in at 7lbs 11oz and 21 inches long.

I must say that labor for little Adalyn was 150% better then with Shane. Basically I had about 10 hours of labor and pushed a whole 12 minutes! Kenny and I are still in disbelief by how smoothly and quickly the whole thing went. Evergreen Hospital has been fantastic and our nurse amazing. I could truly not ask for a better experience. Even more exciting is I don't have to ever do this again!!!

Adalyn has been extremely content so far and a rocking eater!!

Mema and Papa with Adalyn a few hours old.
Big Brother Shane, Daddy and Adalyn.
Adalyn about 1 hour old.
Baby Girl just moments old.

First bath given by Daddy.
