Anna Katherine Has Arrived!

On Tuesday morning at 2:18am on November 2nd we welcomed tiny Anna Katherine into the world! She is 20 inches long and weighed in at a whopping 6 lbs 12 oz. Apparently she was very eager to join us; she delivered so quickly that the doctor had to come sprinting into the room to catch her! She was particularly happy that her "Da Da" gave her her first bath a few minutes later. During her first 18 hours out of the womb she was calm and peaceful although later she found her vocal cords and decided to put them to use between 10pm and 6am.

Anna is a very happy and healthy baby whose big sister Riley is curious about who she is and why she is around so much. For the most part Riley is curious about her little sister and happy to see her. So happy, in fact, that she tries to rush toward Anna and kiss her. She is also compassionate toward her sister; whenever Anna cries, Riley breaks down in tears of sympathy. One of Riley's new favorite phrases is "bay-bay si-si."

Riley loves to give her little sister kisses =)
