Well, reality has struck...all my help is gone! AHHHH!!! I have been so blessed to have so many people come and help out since Ana's arrival. Gaines has been spoiled with 'round the clock attention and now the "adjusting" has begun. I wont lie...it has been kind of hard, but so awesome at the same time. I am trying to enjoy this time instead of just survive! I've posted some pictures from this last weekend - spent with Sonya and Ali, who I am so grateful for. Will was at Winterfest with 50 of our kids (and parents) this weekend, so I was glad to have these special friends come to our rescue while he was gone!

Well, she's finally here! We are so thankful for all of your prayers...the Lord has blessed us! Monday went as smoothly as it possibly could have. Will and I headed to the hospital at 6, walked in the door at 7, I was induced at 8:10, my Dr. broke my water at 12:45 and then little Ana entered the world at 3:33! Well, actually, I can't say "little Ana"...she was a whopping 9lb 7 oz and was 21 inches long! She has the chubbiest cheeks I've ever seen on a baby, her face is still a bit swollen, we're interested to see what she'll look like when all the swelling goes down. Her round face looks so much like Gaines' did, but her hair is what suprised us all- a full head of black hair! Gaines wasn't so sure what to think about seeing me all hooked up to machines and lying in the hospital bed, it was a bit upsetting to him, but once we got into the mother baby room he really warmed up to Ana. He is going to be such a helpful big brother! Again, thank you for all of your prayers. We are so grateful to have so many family and friends to check in on us...Y'all are much appreciated!
