Winter Pearl

She joined us on the 18th at 2:03 PM, topping the scales at 6 lbs 15 oz (our smallest baby yet, even with that adorable double chin)! We can't get enough of her.

We spent Wednesday night at Ensign Ranch celebrating Christmas with my family then headed home on Thursday evening to get a good night sleep before our induction bright and early Friday morning.

Do I look excited to get the party started?

After 6 hours of pitocin, she made her entrance. Mike helped the Dr. catch her! This was a first for him.

She has awesome red hair

She was the talk of the Birth Center in her cool cocoon and hat I knitted her

The kids have been amazing and love to hold her. I can't believe how big they all seem now. They are the best helpers too! How crazy we are a family of 6 now.

Mike making fun of how much we (ok, I) packed for the hospital.

Stay tuned for a December update after I have a chance to go through a million pictures. We've had a lot of fun this holiday season.
