We were thrilled that our friends wanted to come by to meet our sweet girl. I was shocked to receive monogrammed items on the day of her birth from my friends! I guess people know that SK and I love personalized anything!
We were thankful that Rebecca took off 2 days of work to help out with the boys. She came over and stayed at the hospital with us while I labored, went shopping at La Bambolina and Ladies in Waiting, took the boys to school, kept them overnight, AND took them to Ruston after Bennett's school pictures. Wow, we couldn't have done it without you, Becky! Thank you!
I don't know if it was because I didn't know the gender of this baby or what, but I was pretty unprepared with my hospital packing. I brought lots of clothes for baby, but not much for myself. Mom got me some new pajamas to wear in the hospital that are so comfy and cute, but they were ruined the first night! So, Neil had to give me his pajamas to put on after I took a bath! Again, Becky came through and brought me some clothes!

Dr. Crittell came by to check out our girl and she said she looked great. SK was "big for gestational age" so she had to have her blood sugar checked a few times. Dr. Crittell is so sweet! Neil happened to be at Target picking up Bennett's prescription while Dr. Crittell was seeing SK. Well, the RX was all messed up so she called the pharmacy right away while at the hospital with us to get it all worked out. So sweet!
Since the nursery wasn't very accommodating, we decided to go ahead and go home the next day from the hospital. I am SO GLAD we went home! It was good to be at my clean house, with our own beds, and our own house stuff. Since Nana and Granddad had the boys, it was a great way to get to spend some one-on-one time with our baby girl at home. We loved having these 2 special days.
A couple weeks before I had Sarah Kathryn, I went to La Bambolina to pick out a few items for boy or girl. I just fell in love with this white lacy dress and bonnet. Rebecca went and picked it up so baby girl would have something to wear home.
|She loved it I think! :)|
|Neil, the flowers Hunter Energy sent, SK, and my hugeness|
|Jenny let me borrow her safety pin and I just had 2 bows made for it. We needed the pink one!|
|me with the best nurse ever, Angela|
|I was so glad that the girl next door to us had a boy! They didn't have anything for their door and were excited about having our bow. She said she was going to hang it in her nursery!|

|Carol came by for a visit and even brought a gorgeous pink Feltman dress for our sweet girl|
|Look at all this pink! I just can't get over it!!!|
