miss frances katherine day

on april the 8th at 10:18am, we were blessed with the third (and final) addition to our family. miss frances katherine day, arrived weighing 6 lbs. 9 oz. (much smaller than predicted), and measuring 19 1/2 inches. she has a bit of light brown hair that seems curly, and dark blue eyes. as of this morning we (mommy and baby) are doing great! my epidural has been pulled, as have the iv's and caths....and we have even been for a walk down the hall! and since things are running so smoothly, i felt it was time to introduce miss frances properly to her blogging world. :)

our traditional "last shot" before we leave for the hospital.

try not to stare at my strangely enormous nose....instead check out those excited big kids awaiting sissy's arrival.

mommy tucked in and ready to go...

daddy in his gear, ready for #3!!

first family shot.

big sister's big love.

just a teeny bit proud...

just a teeny bit overwhelmed! ;)

proud aunt su and uncle seth.

popa and dotdot.

mother and daughter.

proud grandday's: gege and pawpaw.

dr. deed carries on our family tradition of the older siblings being presented babies just like mommy and daddy.

Yay! So excited (and jealous) for y'all (us). She's beautiful. Love the pic of her eyes open. Setler is anxiously waiting to meet his newest cousin once y'all get settled back home. I know only siblings under 12 are allowed in hospital. I'm gonna steal some of your pics. Check out the ones on my blog too.
