Six weeks ago we welcomed the newest member of our family, Leah Hope.
She was born on August 31st at 7:17 in the morning. She weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces and was 20.5 inches long.
The kids are all doing great with baby Leah. They all love to hold her and they always give her lots of kisses.
This was by far the best hospital experience for giving birth of all of the kids. The hospital staff was super friendly and made sure everything was being done according to how I wanted it even though I didn’t have specific plans except wanting to have a healthy baby. After having the last two kids in Russia, I definitely felt spoiled. Understanding exactly every word the nurses and doctors were saying to me this time around was something I was very thankful for. And the nurses seemed like they genuinely cared. They weren’t cold and unwilling to show some tenderness.
We were happy to have Katrina’s parents and sister come down to help out a few weeks after her birth. They were such a big help with cooking, watching the kids so I could nap, doing odd jobs around the house and probably some other things I don’t remember since I was so sleepy during that time. 🙂
Thanks Mom, Dad and Rachel!
