So our little girl arrived on May 18 at 10:05 pm. Labor was pretty easy and fast once we got going and got the epidural. I was planning to go in on the 19th to be induced, but started having contractions about 3 on Monday afternoon. So Joshua and I headed for the hospital and they told us they were so busy that I needed to wait in the waiting room. So we were out there for about 1 1/2 hrs and finally, after Joshua went and had a chat with the nurses, they got me back there and I was dilated to a 7. So we were well on our way and got the epidural and everything went smoothly from there. She was 7 lbs. 15oz and 19 in long. We came home on Wednesday morning and have been adjusting since. She is such a sweet baby and the boys love her. Cole seems to be doing great, and Parker loves her but is having a little bit of adjusting to do. He is really doing pretty well. She is a really sweet baby and we are so glad she is here. We are enjoying the summer and are excited to have the pool up and going. Cole is doing swim team and seems to love it. He and Joshua went to his first meet on Sat. and seemed to have a great time. He and Luke swam kickboard together. They had a great time. Parker loves the water again this year, but thankfully so far is a little more cautious. He and Cole are getting to be good buddies. He's also doing a lot better in nursery. We had a stretch there when he was hitting quite a bit, but he seems to have calmed down and really loves when Sis. Rieske comes to do singing time. He went to Grandma and Grandpa Pierson's last night while I went running (Joshua had taken Cole to a Twisters game), and when I came back, he and Grandpa had the music blaring (I think it was fleetwood mac) and were dancing. What a fun life my kids have. Cole will start kindergarten in the fall, and they sent him a letter the other day about what supplies he will need and when his open house it. That night he slept with the letter and woke up around 3 am. I was out on the couch feeding Kate and he stumbled out with his letter in hand and said "Mom, what does it say I need to bring again?" He is pretty excited. He graduated from pre-k the week before we had Katelyn. Here are a couple of pics from his program. He was Humpty Dumpty. He had a great year and a great teacher, Ms. Melinda, in pre-K. Life is good here.
