Three is Better than Two

Mckinley finally decided to enter the world. I'll give more details later when I'm not so darn tired.


We went to the hospital to be induced at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 6th and she was born at 1:06 a.m. today, Friday, May 7th. She REALLY loved being on the inside...

We are so in love with her.



Kristen and Brandon helped me get through it all.





She's had lots of wide awake time and she's still only 14 hours old.
