Finally, some more pictures!

This is Janet the midwife weighing Ashlynn. None of us were surprised that she was nearly 10 pounds.
Here is Janet putting Ashlynn's diaper and t-shirt on. The t-shirt reads "I am Special - I was born at Home." This is also the first time all six girls were together - Brynna, Hailey, and Lauryn had just woken up to meet Ashlynn for the first time. Oh, and then there are my lovely swollen feet that somehow made it into the picture.
Here's proud Daddy - AKA Dr. Smith, the delivery man.
And of course, the big sisters have to have their chance to hold her.

Hmmm. Somehow I missed getting pictures of Brynna and Aubrey holding her. Guess the camera ate them. But here are our youngest three. Lauryn is very proud of being a big sister. She tells us "I'm a big sister. I have a big mouth." Guess she thinks all big sisters have big mouths - a good assumption in our family.
Here is a sleeping close up. She is spending a little more time awake the last day or two, so I'll get a better one of her soon.
Here is the gem of the day though. Kora has become my champion baby burper, but I think she got a little more than she bargained for this morning. After her burp, Ashlynn was still hungry!

Ok, it is too soon to start calling your children by the wrong name! I guess you can claim pregnancy/nursing brain still as you are barely postpartum. I had to read this 2 times to realize that the T-shirt wasn't Lauryn's passed on. The diaper part confirmed that thankfully or I would have really been confused!

Thanks, Lora. This only reflects the reality right now - I have called her Lauryn quite a bit. I think Kelly needs to start proof reading my posts before I publish them!

I can't remember how I stumbled onto your blog but we live just down the road from you in Kerrville. I was so excited to see Janet on your blog. She delivered our first child over 4 years ago. We just love her and think she is so special. Congratulations on your new blessing!!!!

Congratulations! When our daughter was born, Travis loved having her suck on his nose (helped him feel like he was helping nurse her, I guess). She's beautiful! Blessings to your family!
