New Born in the House

Baby Caroline in Action!

Just doing a little talking....

Wondering when the paparazzi will leave...

It's soooo cold!!

Telling mom what she thinks about the diaper change...

At One Week

One-Week-Old Caroline
For those of you that have been waiting - here are some updated pictures of Miss Caroline. Mary says Caroline is doing well - eating, sleeping, and making dirty diapers. A couple nights last week she even slept for five hours straight! As for Mary, she is feeling better every day. Chad is also doing well. Caroline especially enjoys napping on Daddy's chest.


Who can resist kissing on those little baby toes?

Mary said the pediatrician commented how big her feet are. Evidently she's got her mom's feet.

At the Hospital

Welcome baby Caroline!

After Mary and Chad arrived at the hospital around 7:15 a.m., little Caroline was born at 1:52p.m. She weighed 6lbs, 9 ounces - and was 19.5 inches long! She has brownish hair. She truly is beautiful! Mary did a great job and so did Chad - he hung in there with Mary the whole time and even cut the cord. Mom, Dad, and baby are doing well and expect to be home Sunday evening.

I will post some pictures below - but they are not the best. The were taken through the nursery window. We'll post more as soon as they become available.

Patton is Anxiously Awaiting her Arrival!

No, she is not here yet. Yes, I am more than ready. Here's is the latest information from the doctor: unless she comes before, we'll be induced on Friday (October 13) morning. Yes, I realize that is "Friday the 13th" - but, at this point, I just want to meet her! Here are some pictures of her room and the belly. We'll be in touch as soon as there is more information to share. We'll use this blog to post updates and pictures, so visit and comment often!
