Growing on Each Other

Well this is week 2 with Kelsey and of course we absolutely adore her. She is a sweet and good baby. She has really seemed to 'grow on' Carter too. He is very tender towards her. (Now don't get me wrong - there is still countless times in the day when he walks in a room, sees me holding Kelsey, frantically looks around for another adult - usually Gramie - and says "mommy, gramie hold Kelsey . . . ME hold you!" And if I don't hold him within the next few minutes, we see a toddler squirming and whining on the floor. For those of you who have 2 year olds, you know this drill well I'm sure. I must admit I am still quite intimidated at handling it all on my own, when I don't have another adult to hand Kelsey off to.) All in all, we are adjusting well.

Family bonds are not the only things that have been 'growing' in our house the past week. Phill decided to take time off of work AND shaving. These are some pictures of his masterpiece. I still don't quite get the immense pride that guys take in how quickly and plentiful they can grow hair on their face.

Kelsey loved being on her tummy during her sponge baths.

Kelsey Laine Galbreath

Our sweet girl arrived Thursday, February 7th at 7:04pm. The delivery went well and our prayers were answered as she arrived at 5 lbs 9 ounces! Carter is adjusting and he gets a little more interested in her every day. Thank you for all of your prayers in welcoming Kelsey to this world!

Baby Kelsey Update . . .

Just wanted to let everyone know that the decision was made by my doctor today to induce Kelsey on Saturday, February 9th. (Although I will not be too surprised if she comes earlier, considering it's past midnight and I am on the couch writing this in between contractions)

As most of you know, the doctors are concerned she has stopped growing in utero and since she is now at 37 weeks and considered "full term" - it is best to go ahead and deliver her to eliminate any possibility that there could be a placenta problem. I truly feel at peace that this is the way to go and that she will be just fine.

Please join us in praying for Kelsey's health and a safe delivery! Thank you!
