Boom Goes The Baby.

Mary Katherine, Born Sept. 7th.
8 LBS. 14 OZ.

The Boys and their Little Sister. They seemed rather proud.


Mmmm..Delicious baby.


Patrick was the more interested and curious, not having gone through this before. Philip wants to help and hold her, but he understands that babies aren't much fun till they can do something.

The only unusual thing that occurred was when we arrived at the hospital the maternity ward was running on emergency power. We had a minor storm last night which might have caused the problem, but know one knew for sure. Anything plugged into a red outlet worked, this did not include the computers so the majority of the forms to be filled out was done on notebook paper. It also put the delivery in question. They could only perform 'necessary surgery,' and since our C-Section was considered 'elective,' we might have to wait.

I did make a mental note that the hospital would be a good place to hideout in case of a zombie outbreak, but that didn't really help the situation at hand. Luckily, it turned out to be no big deal.

It never gets any less amazing when they pull a person out of another person.

Well, I'm back to the hospital. I do recommend the cafeteria if you ever happen to be hungry in Elmhurst.

Phil and Linda,
Congrats, on the birth of you daughter, Mary Katherine what a great Irish name. She is SOOOO BEAUTIFUL, Linda will have a great time shopping for clothes. Phil, you should probably take up hunting, so when the boys come a calling, they won't get to many ideas. LOL Like I commented about Zelda, the calls and love letters come very soon. Mikayla got her first when she was 3 in pre-school, so good luck. again, I am so happy for the both of you. Babies are truly a wonderful gift from God.

On the way home from Field School, tha boyz and I would often stop at the hospital to hit the vending machines. Strange place to get snacks, but then we were strange kids.

Oh, and congrats on the great news ;)

Cute!! Does the cafe food get worse at night and the weekends when the admin people go home? Where my son was born in NE OH the food was FANTASTIC during the day, and on the weekend it was hideous-- probably 'cuz the CEO was out golfing...
