... so hard to believe that our little darling is already
2 weeks old!!
(I know that Oma and Opa Oudshoorn (as welll as a few others I am sure!!)
have regularly been checking on here for hospital pictures
so today I focused on editing these pictures...)
It is so nice to remember back on these first
Such a precious experience!!
So extremely thankful that all has gone well
and that we may treasure our dear gift!
Welcome to our family dear...
7 lbs 15 oz (same weight as Landon)
8:36 pm Thursday evening...
Our first look... so precious!
It is so amazing....
Dr. Allison Henry.... didnt make it for delivery - about 7 min late:)
She is a dear, sensitive lady... really appreciated how
she knew our history and records and treated us throughout the day!
Love this picture - looking over to make sure Mommy and Daddy are still around :)
We took our time treasuring our daughter
as we knew many people were in church anyway...
and Mommy was thoroughly enjoying all the snuggles!!
The next morning...
Ranen and Owen coming to welcome their sister!
So happy, So proud, So gentle, So special....
Lovingly named after her Opa 'Shiloh'!
(and indirectly after my Great Opa Traas, because Dad is named after him...
and his birthday was also in April...)
Dr Quentin Smith came in on Friday morning to see us...
A real treat to have such a family doctor!!
A few dear family and friends
stopped by to celebrate Katie's arrival!!
Ranen came back again in the afternoon because she really
wanted to hold Katie again... and get some snuggles in with Daddy!
We waited around at the hospital for the 24 hour mark so that they could do the heel prick test
and then we joyfully went home Friday evening to sleep in our own bed!!
Ben was off for the weekend so Dad and Mom dropped off the two boofies
on Saturday afternoon!! They stayed home the weekend and went
back to Mom's for part of Monday and then came home to stay...
They have adjusted really well to a new baby in the house and all in all
things are going great!
A HUGE thank you to Mom for all the support... the numerous meals
you have made for me because you didn't want me making meals myself yet!
You are a wonderful lady... so proud to call you my Mom!
Some more dear friends came to visit us at home...
My mom has this tendency... to get me a lovely boquet of flowers...
These next two pictures sum up how happy these two kidlets are
to have a new sister in the house!!
Hope you all have a good Easter weekend...
and hopefully I will be able to upload some more pictures soon!!
Also a big thanks for my siblings and friends who have
made meals and helped us out in the last couple of weeks!!
It is SO greatly appreciated... we feel the love! Thanks!
