I can't believe that we started the morning off VERY pregnant and excited about what the day would bring. By the time we went to the hospital for our induction we were dialated to a three and having contractions every six minutes. She definetely wanted to come on the 15th!

Classic Dr. Hartman picture. Everyone of our kids have a pic with Dr. Hartman giving them bunny ears. These were our nurses (the one on the right, Sandy, was with us through the entire labor and delivery and she was fabulous!!) She really helped me through a natural delivery.
Our first picture together....Love at first sight.
While I got settled in our room, Brooklyn and Dad went to the nursery to have her first bath.
Reed said she turned as bright as a tomato during her bath.
Look at all that hair!!
All fancied up with a jelly bean bow.
The kids showed up once we were settled in our room and they brought presents for the baby. My parents had been with the kids all day awaiting the arrival of Brooklyn.
The kids came after they had been to McDonald's for Happy Meals(Abbie's birthday dinner pick) and were ready to celebrate Abbie's birthday with presents and then we went and got her the best present of all....a new baby sister....from the nursery.
Abbie opened up her first present...a puppy pillow pet. She also opened light-up Sketchers, a purple ruffled umbrella and some summer clothes.
Abbie and grandma made a chocolate raspberry heart centered cake. You can see it say's #6 but, if you look closely to the right of the "happy" you can see a zero.....Abbie said it's for baby sister....since she was just born.
Since Abbie was the birthday girl, we went and got the baby from the nursery and she was the first to hold her baby sister. The boys were so jealous that she got to hold her first and were ready and waiting to hold their baby sister.
Grandma having her turn holding Brooklyn.
Grandpa and grand baby #19 for them.
Isaac was so excited to hold his sister. His comment was that, "She's SO cute!"
Aunt Jennie, Uncle John, Cousin Rian and Gunnar were able to come to the hospital for Abbie's birthday and to meet the newest member of our family.
