Home and Happy

Came home Saturday morning and loving being here. I am blessed to have lots of help, between my parents being here and Hunter/Myah wanting to help.

The kids have been adjusting amazingly well....our worse challenge being arguing over who gets to hold her. They have been more than willing to get me diapers, get me water, and even attempting to help me nurse. (I will let you figure that out)

My parents have been amazing, especially with helping Hunter and Myah, giving them lots of love and attention. Cleaning my house, dinner, and dad even made apple pies last night.

Ava is sleeping amazingly well. She has been such a good baby.

Hunter fell asleep by her yesterday...I will post that picture.

Day 2 with Ava...

Survived our first night with Ava, she is a natural at nursing. She has been a very sweet baby, and cute as a bug.

Big brother and sister came to see us this morning. Hunter held her and also helped push her on a walk, in her crib, around the mother/baby unit. Myah couldn't get enough of holding and touching her. Nothing like having your very own, live, baby doll to play with. They are going to be great helpers. Maybe a little to great (: They are spending the day with grandma, grandpa, Uncle Rick, cousins Sandra & Lars at lucky peak on the boat. It is supposed to be 102 today, so they should have a fun day in the water.

She is calling for mom again now, so this will have to be short.

Ava Sue Reichert

Wow, what a special day. Ava was born at 12:10, healthy and beautiful. Actually, looks a lot like Myah did as a newborn. Mommy is doing great too. Just a little tired (so is daddy).

Ava weighed in at 6pounds 15 ounces, 20 inches long. One scary surprise was she had a true knot in her umbilical cord. Thankfully it was a healthy enough cord that it was unable to cinch tight and she is here with us today.

Her hair is a really light brown. Dimple on the left cheek. (same as Myah's)

We are so grateful to have her in our family. Hunter and Myah were really good with her today, holding her while smiling ear to ear.

I will attach a few pictures. We appreciate everyone's love and support.

First Blog Entry

Okay so we are a little behind the times and are finally making our own blog. The motivation for it being that we are having our third baby tomorrow and would love to have a simple way to share photos. Hope all our family and friends will visit often. I am not a facebooker, sorry. So if we can figure this out, we will hopefully have pictures posted over the next few days of our new addition (did I mention final addition).


Jake, Ellee, Stephen, Hunter, Myah, and baby girl
