Welcome to the world...

She's here!!! our precious daughter, Kelsie Louise, was born Sunday, May 24 at 5:02pm. It was a wonderful labor and delivery and she came in at 7lbs 8oz and 20" long with a full head of dark hair! We call her our little indian baby because she looks like a little indian with her dark hair and skin. She got to come home on Tuesday after spending a night on a phototherapy bed for jaundice. (That was so not fun). She is the best baby, very sweet tempered and a good sleeper =) Yay us! Hopefully it stays! Carter is so excited to be a big brother and always wants to know where his baby is and loves showing her off to visitors. He, of course, asks lots of questions and every time I change her diaper, he makes a gross face at her belly button and says, "Get that off!" Ha ha...He is such a good helper and is adjusting very well to having a baby in the house. She makes it pretty easy on all of us =) Here's some pictures:

Proud parents...she finally arrived!!!


What a proud Daddy...he just loves holding his little girl
Thank you to all of our family for all of your love and support the last year and a half trying to make the arrival of this little angel possible. We are so thrilled she's finally with us! Thank you, especially, for my mom and staying with Carter while we were at the hospital, and everyone for making him feel loved while his mommy and daddy weren't around. That was a great blessing! We are so thankful for our Heavenly Father blessing us and trusting us with these two precious little souls.
