She's Here!!!!

She's Here!!!

That's right we had a little girl. On November 22nd we welcomed Iscel (ice-l) LaMay into this world. She was 8 lbs 15 oz and 21 inches long. Compared to Chester she was a light weight (for those who don't know or remember he was a 10 pounder).  And she came way faster than her brother. I was in labor with him for about 18 hours and her only 5. When I got to the hospital they almost sent me home cause I hadn't progressed any...

3 1/2 hours later she was here.

The doctor just barely got there in time. He got there, checked me, and said let's push. It was a lot faster than Chester.

So what's the deal with the name...

I'm sure all of you were asking this.....

Well Iscel was my Grandma's name. Grandma always went by her middle name, Nell, and Iscel was her first name and Caleb and I both really liked the name. (Grandma actually spelled her name Icel, but Caleb liked the way it looked with the "s" in it.

LaMay was the last name of a neighbor we took care of when I was young. She didn't have any kids or grand kids and treated me and my siblings like we were her grand kids.

Like my sister said we don't have to worry about there being another kid with her name. ;)

It's been 2 1/2 months since she was born, so here are a few of the pics from this time...

These were some of her newborn pics. I had more to show you, but I can't get them uploaded onto my ipad right now and we aren't home to use the computer.

Chester loves his little sister and insists on getting his picture taken too!

Other breaking news....

I chopped my hair and I'm donating it to locks of love.....and boy am I glad it's gone.

Hopefully I will get a chance to update you all again soon with what going on.
