I gave birth to our new little girl, Avril Marie Boulden, on Saturday night. She was 7 pounds, 8 ounces and 19 1/3 inches long. My water broke at 6pm, while we were at the mall. We made a quick exit, as you'd guess, got home, got our bags and got to the hospital by 7pm. Avril was born at 11:32pm. A good friend came to meet us at the hospital and kept Norah busy and distracted. She wasn't in the delivery room for the worst of it, but Norah was able to come right in and meet her sister as soon as she was born. This may be my last new post for a while, but feel free to keep looking in because I set a few weeks of material to post in my absence.

A photo of the action.

It was all very gross to Norah.

Our new family picture.
(No one else is looking at the camera, but I like myself best in this shot.)

Mommy and baby.

Close up.

My beloved ones.

We are all so tired.

Congratualtions!!

Going from to 3 to 4- made us seem like much more of a "family" - my baby had a sibling. :)


Get some rest!

I love her so much already! You look great by the way. Dad is getting better with her name. He called her Anvil the other day. Closer! Love you all!
