Blake is here!

Our little Blake is finally here! My due date was Nov 19th and he still hadn't come. The doctor sent me for an ultra sound and monitoring and noticed that the baby wasn't responding very much. They sent me to the hospital to do more monitoring and possibly be induced. They monitored me for a few hours and ended up sending me home. They had me come back Sunday afternoon for more monitoring. My blood pressure was high, so they decided to induce me. He arrived Monday morning at 11:33am weighing 8lbs, 11oz and measuring 20 1/2 inches. The umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck 3 times, but everything ended up being fine. He's very healthy and cute, and we love him a ton!


For Halloween my mother in-law made the girls kimonos. They decided that they wanted to be Mulan, so we painted their faces white and put some chopsticks in their hair. I think they make pretty cute Mulans.
