New apple terminology

Ellie was super excited for me to take her to the "apple patch" which I did on Thursday. The lady there let us walk through the orchard and pick one apple. They don't usually let anyone pick apples but when Ellie and I came in, she couldn't refuse my super cute face. Anyway, we walked through and we found a tree with one apple left on it so Ellie thought it was there just for her. That's the one she picked and it turned out to be really really good. When we went back into the store to buy our apple and about 25 or 30 pounds of already picked apples, Ellie asked me if we could also buy "some of that apple punch".

Multi-purpose tubs

You know those cheap pink plastic tubs that they send home with your baby from the hospital? We've used those in the past as puke buckets (by the way, a quick message to The Office: Not Cool!) for the kids when they're sick. Well, Carla filled one w/ water and was washing off Caroline today and Ellie got this offended look on her face and said, "That's my sick jar!"

Other than that, we're just not sleeping much. Turns out, Caroline's fussy time is from about 11pm to 2am. Fortunately, Letterman's been pretty funny lately and I haven't had to endure much Carson Daly.

They were just watching the replay on the buckeye's game to decide whether or not Pryor threw as he was being sacked. It looked like he threw to one of the announcers who termed it, "a little flickage".

Homecoming Day!

We will soon be headed home from the hospital, so the frequent postings and updates on Facebook are sure to end since we do not have internet at home. Until the next update, we'd like to thank everyone for their prayers for our family and for the showering of visits, cards, food and gifts. We are so blessed! Caroline is doing absolutely great, and we can't wait to introduce her to the kids today. Kurt is going to take video, so look for that soon! We'll also post some more pictures. Until then, pray for sleep :) (for us, not you!)

Here she is!

Caroline Grace

We are now a family of three boys and three girls! Caroline Grace is our chubbiest and shortest baby. She has a bruised nose, lip, and cheek from her speedy entrance into the world. Dr. Chitra managed to get one glove on to deliver her, but we are very thankful that she was here! I am super excited to tell Ellie that she has a sister!

Time of Birth: 11:00 p.m.
Weight: 7 lbs. 11 oz. (She beat W. by one ounce.)
Height: 18.25 inches

She has lots of dark hair and a good set of lungs. We are so very blessed to have her as a part of our family!

Speaking of erupting

Ellie asked me the other day if "veecanoes" are real.

Let's see, what else is new? Walker's very proud of his first ever loose tooth. I'm sure he'll be telling you about it soon if he hasn't already.

Anderson blasted his head on a tree yesterday. Every time we go to a soccer game, he loves to just run for a while then fall down on his stomach. Yesterday, he got a little too close to the tree before he fell. Oh, well. First (or second or third) of many concussions.

Also, we should have a new kid in a few hours or so . . . stay tuned.
