We had our little Suzy last night (3/31/01) at about 10:20 pm. We were scheduled for an induction on the 30th but the hospital was too busy so we ended up going in yesterday afternoon at about 5 pm. Lucy was so excited. Just as they were posing for this picture she said, "I have to say something to the baby." She then turned and said, " You're going to the doctor's office now, baby!!"
The induction went great and within 5 hours we had our little Suzy. She weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces and was 20 inches long.

So we've gotten quite a bit of flack for dropping off the face of the blogging world. I do very much apologize, but come on, we've been a bit busy around here....
That's right, I've been dang busy growing teeny tiny eyebrows and toe nails and ear lobes and bunzies, not to mention all those vital organs! And while I was busy doing all this growing (on the couch and in bed...) Byron was busy taking care of the house and kids and crazy life in general with a family of four kids, oh yeah, and working full time at his new job, which he loves by the way. I think he has had the harder job, but mine still seems to make me more tired.
BUT, now that I am 17 weeks along and feeling much more like a normal, regular tired busy mom, life is seeming more managable and the prospect of a new baby is getting very exciting. I have been a bit freaked out by the thought of FIVE kids, FIVE KIDS!, especially with a three year old and a two year old thrown in the mix. Woah! One night a number of weeks ago, when I was feeling lousy and the day had been particularly hectic and kids had been exceptional nightmares, I was scared. I said to Byron, "Who are we kidding throwing a newborn into the mix of this life??? It's going to be insane!!!" Byron, being the typical Byron, came to my rescue without really meaning to. He said simply, but with complete sincerity, "It's going to be perfect." I so needed him to have this attitude. Yes it is going to be absolutely insane, but it is what we WANT. There is no better insanity, no better true joy that will come from having another baby to love and care for and teach and cherish. Yes, I am terrified, but I am learning to adopt Byron's attitude. I am a slow learner.....
We get to find out the gender in a few weeks. We are trying to THINK PINK!!!
By the way, I am too lazy to scan the real ultrasound pictures we got at 12 weeks, this one was stolen from the internet. Our baby was WAY cuter....
