Here She Is...

Kadeja Stevona, 2 1/2 hours old
(not sure on the spelling of the middle name yet)

Here's the happy family. Mom, Dad, Big Sister Senaye and Li'l Bit Kadeja. Senaye is holding a plush, stuffed puppy that she picked out herself to give the baby. Aren't they cute! (I'm not talking about mommy and daddy. LOL!)

I took the three boys up to the hospital the next morning to meet their new cousin. The boys were great; no fighting, yelling, stomping or screaming. Except for Kolten, who pulled a Great Escape and wandered off down the hall. It only took a minute to catch him. Connor was very excited to get to hold the baby. He was gentle and sweet and in awe at how small she was.

And Benen with Kadeja. Benen has loved babies since he was barely old enough to walk. His eyes lit up when he first saw her.

The family portrait is sure cute (I'm jealous...I did NOT look that good so soon after giving birth!)And the kids are all darling-every last one!
