This past week has been a whirlwind! On Monday, May 9th Camilla Kay Barrow made her entrance into the world. (After struggling to decide on a middle name, we finally went with Kay which is my mom's and my sister's middle name.) We are so excited that we get to be the parents of yet another beautiful baby girl. Camilla looks so much like Annabeth did as a newborn - aside from her "sumo" wrestler cheeks. She weighed in at a surprising 7 pounds 14 ounces, nearly a pound more than her big sister. As for the delivery, I have to say that I seem to be very lucky since both Annabeth and Camilla came super fast. I was induced at 6:00, the doctor broke my water at 8:00 and at 9:01 she was born. I think the Lord knows what we can handle and He must know that I can't handle too much pain. =) I sent Brent out for the epidural this time since the last time, he didn't handle it too well. And boy was I grateful to have it!
Annabeth is so excited to be a big sister. It is the first thing she tells people about herself. She loves to give her hugs and kisses and play with her soft hair. I am realizing though that I am going to have to keep a close eye on her to make sure she doesn't give her too much "love."
Thanks to moms and dads and all of our families and friends for helping us out so much this week. We feel so blessed to be the recipients of so much love and support. It is an amazing thing to bring a baby into the world and reminds me of the huge responsibility I have to care for these little girls. We love them so much!!
