Cameron Denise

Most of the people who read my blog - if not everyone who reads it - already know this, but our new daughter was born!! And, we finally figured out a name for her!

Cameron Denise was born on Saturday, October 24th, at 3:43 am. She was 9 lbs 12 oz, and 21 1/2" long.

I'll post more of the birth story later, but to sum up...it was pretty incredible! More painful than Kendall's, but much quicker, and I feel MUCH better afterwards. Just really, really tired - but that's because we lost an entire night's sleep, and didn't get much sleep Saturday night.

We're home now, and very happy to be. Kendall is absolutely in love with her new little sister, and can't stop touching her. Unfortunately, thanks to the swine flu, Kendall wasn't able to come to the hospital to meet Cameron. Not because she has the swine flu, but as a precaution, the hospital set up a rule just within the last few days, that there are no visitors under 18. So, the first time she saw her was when we came home. She was really excited.

  6. So sorry that it was more painful than Kendall's birth, but thank goodness it was quicker. Can't wait to hear more, but for now just get some sleep! Both Joey and Hannah came after a whole night of being up in labor. It's no fun starting off with a newborn when you are already down a night of sleep!
