Mary Kate has arrived!



Well, she is here! And it is no trick this time! I went to my appt yesterday w/Dr Robert and my blood pressure was high. She kept me for a while and checked three times and it never dropped, so she sent me upstairs with papers in my hands to order an induction....wooohooo! I was pumped. I could not get a hold of Kevin b/c he was on a sales call but finally did about 40 min later. My mom and dad hopped on the 6:40 flight to DFW and made it for the big arrival. I moved really slow for a while. Started my petocin at 3:30 and broke my water at 4:30. Got my epidural at 6:30. I stayed at a 4 and 100% until 10:30 and by 11:10 I was at a 10 and ready to push. My epidural was not in full force so I was really feeling it. It just took the edge off which was great. I was dying to go and I had to wait for Dr Robert which took about 10 min...longest 10 min ever! and breathe through not pushing when she was about to hit the floor.. Pushed for 2 min and she was out! So the stats are 6 lbs 15 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. She looks a lot like Bella as a newborn but has some good black hair. She was born at 11:28 pm so she is an Oct 16th baby! She is eating well so that is encouraging. I am doing Great!! I am a little sore (obviously) but God was so sweet to keep me safe and well and Mary Kate as well. So here are the pics, what you really care about. I have not seen her a lot so we will post some additional pics today that are better, but here is a sneak peak! Love you all and thank you for your prayers. God is good and faithful. I give Him all praise and glory for our new arrival. We commit to Him to raise another daughter for His kingdom purposes.
