Introducing Ainsley

Ainsley is here! I had a mild case of pre eclampsia so my doctor opted to induce me last Thursday. The induction was 100% better than my experience with McKenna, and it didn't last nearly as long either, which I was very grateful for! I went in at 9:30 and I had her at 7:35 that evening, so not too bad. She was 6 pounds 6oz and 18.5 inches long, so the same length that McKenna was, but almost two pounds lighter. She is our little peanut! One thing that I am thrilled about is she has dimples! I was really hoping that one of my kids would get them, and she did, on both sides.
We are all doing good, a little sleep deprived, but good. The adjustment is still on-going, McKenna is doing pretty good with it. She loves Ainsley, she wants to touch and hold her all of the time. Ainsley is pretty easy going, she is sleeping 90% of the time, so it is making the adjustment that much easier. We are all happy that she is here safe and healthy!

My Little Party Girl!

Last weekend was absolutely crazy!! We hosted two birthday barbeque's for McKenna, it was so much fun, but so much work! It was so worth it to see how excited she was to see that everyone had come to help celebrate her birthday. All day she would walk around the house singing Happy Birthday, and at the end of it she would even practice blowing out the candles! It was adorable! She absolutely loved blowing out the candles and opening the presents! Thank you to everyone who came and made it so special for my little girl!

Happy 2nd Birthday McKenna!

I can't believe that it has been two years since McKenna was born! I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday, but then again it feels like she has always been here! She has brought so much joy and happiness to our home. I feel so blessed to be her mother.
