Welcome Keara Lynn


Here we are! Keara Lynn was born Aug 1 weighing 6lbs 5 oz and was 19.5 inches long. I made it to 40 weeks ( with Asher I only made it 36) and the VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) was successful! I feel really good and would have to say the second time around is a lot easier...

Asher is the one to keep me on my toes. All in all I would have to say that he is adjusting pretty well though- he's 2, so I'm sure it's only normal to expect him to point his laser gun straight at her mouth and shoot... it makes a loud noise too (he got it from my sister Nat and her kids for his b-day- I will return the favor when my nephew Zander turns 2) haha!




Though this isn't the most flattering picture of me, I thought that Keara looked adorable so wide awake :)

Keara is adorable! I kept thinking about you and wondering when you were going to post some pictures. I can't believe all that dark hair! You both look great! I'm so glad the second baby came easier even though you had to wait a few weeks longer. Hope you are doing good with two now! Can't wait to visit.
