Me on delivery day. It was quite surreal to be at the hospital, with no contractions, and realizing that I'd have a baby in a just a few hours!

Karis becoming "official" at the hospital.

My mom, Karis and me.

Gracie and her baby sister. She adores her!

Our first family photo. Karis was a little over 24 hours old. We all happened to be wearing pink and/or green so we took a picture. I was feeling pretty good on that day. I was so completely in awe of the difference from my first c-section to the second.

This is Karis just cuddling on my chest. It doesn't get any better than this!

My beautiful girls and me! This was us right before I was discharged from the hospital. I was glad to go home yesterday because it was my big girl's third birthday! I was pretty exhausted by the time all the presents had been opened and "happy birthday" had been sung, but we made it! Karis had a pretty good night her first night home. She nursed really well and even slept for one stretch of 3 1/2 hours.

I am praying for all of you that are still waiting for your little ones to arrive. God is faithful!

Well, I didn't do a good job of keeping you updated. My husband has posted a lot of pictures on FB, but I haven't really had a chance to blog!
Karis Joy was born on Tuesday, May 31st, at 1:38 PM. She weighed 8 pounds, 5 ounces and measured 20 1/2 inches long. I had a c-section, and everything went very well. It was so amazing to see Karis' face for the first time. She is beautiful and precious and delicate and lovely!!!
Compared to Gracie, she seems so tiny to me. (Gracie weighed 10 pounds, 5 ounces at birth.) She has long toes and fingers, like her big sister though. Yesterday was her first- sort of alert day. She did a great job nursing! Hooray!!
Speaking of which- she's telling me she's hungry right now. I'll post more later!! xoxoxo Krisa
