Caroline is still doing great! She is so sweet and seems to be quite the sleeper... I got three straight hours of sleep last night. A-mazing!!! Sweet teeny tiny feet... They look bigger on camera but are maybe 2 inches long and very thin.
Molly begs to hold Caroline constantly. (she reaches her hands out and says "hold her! Hold her!") We have to remind her that we all need a turn! :)
We are so happy to announce the birth of our sweet Caroline Alison Crawford! Born 2/22 at 7:04pm. 7lbs and 20 inches (exactly the same size as Molly!) and absolutely perfect! We got home before midnight and are just all cuddling together. Healthy delivery and all are doing well! We thank God for this indescribable gift!
So, I'll be 39 weeks on Friday! A lot of anticipation going on here. I'm pretty sure God has me dilate early so that I'll actually get stuff done in time. I finally got a new pediatrician yesterday so we won't be driving 25 minutes from our new house, sewed curtains last week, etc. etc. Nesting instinct in high gear!
At my appt. today the midwife said i'm still hanging out at 3cm and almost completely effaced at 90%. she said if I have 2-3 intense contractions in a row to leave for the birth center. No sticking around here timing contractions. Think that'll give JC time to get home from work? Hehe. We are trusting God's timing on this. :) Molly is doing great - learning new things every day and talking about baby sister non-stop. She brings us so much joy!! From our big Dallas snow-in a couple weeks ago:
And she got to have hot chocolate afterwards - I told her that's our special snow treat!

Baby sister's is done except for her birthday, so I'll be posting it soon enough! :)
