Thought I'd share Mckenna's team picture (click to enlarge). She holds her own pretty well with all those boys.

Halle Jayne Mathie

I know this may be a bit late--o'well!)

Halle Jayne Mathie was born March 9th at 10:46 am. She was 7 lbs 10.5 oz. and was 19 3/4 inches long. We are doing very well with the transition. Here are some simple pictures to get started.

*I will post more pictures and the long story of labor and delivery (mostly for my records) when I have time.

Kayla is a so proud to be a BIG sister!

Halle- the day we came home from the hospital

Kenna loves to help and hold the baby. She's a great helper!

I am glad I have a picture of me and all my girls. Give me the benefit of the doubt and believe that I normally don't look this great! haha

Medical Necessity

Well, My doc said that he will not induce me before 42 weeks UNLESS it is medically necessary. So I have taken it upon myself to list the medical necessities for me to be induced:

Sleep deprivation/Fatigue--I think I average about 4-5 hours a night--over a period of time that's got to be medically alarming!

Chronic Heartburn-- I don't know if I have an esophagus anymore.

Shortness of Breath--

Excessive rapid weight gain- Who wants to continue to gain a pound a week PAST the due date?

Frequent bathroom visits--

When I list these, I sound like a commercial for a new medicine. Any of these would be medical reasons for alarm, but when you're pregnant you just get to live with them for 9 months (or more).

The girls were very excited to show me their creation. Interesting--looks like fun to me!
