Proudly Introducing.....

Torence Ruby
8 Pounds 2 Ounces
19 1/2 Inches
When we got to the hospital, I realized that there are no pictures of me pregnant with Torence, so here I am in all my pregnancy glory at 39 weeks. I was sooooo sooo nervous to have a scheduled C-section this time around. When we got to the hospital, the nurses hooked me up to millions of monitors and told me how awful the pain would be afterwards. I asked if I could get up and go to the restroom. I didn't really need to use the restroom, but used that alone time to plan my escape from the hospital. I decided that it was far too cold outside to be running around in a hospital gown and decided to stick around.

Here I am with my new baby girl!! I know every mom says this, but immediately after I heard her cry for the first time, everything was worth it. All of it!!

Here is Addy, the best big sister in the world. She loves her baby and calls her "Sisters".

Addy loved to come to the hospital to hold the baby and help me. She is very tender-hearted and liked to help me get out of bed.

Baby all ready to go home.

There she is!! Now we have two beautiful little girls. We are very thankful to be blessed with such sweet little angels.

Our Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. Addy was so much fun and brought such a sweet Christmas spirit to our home. Santa was not shy either. There are no pictures of Tyler and my presents though. I got a new laptop, which I am using right now. I love it! Tyler got a large pile of lumber, which he then framed our basement with. He also got some clothes.
Check out what Santa brought Addy:

Opening presents with Daddy.

Addy asked Santa for a "horsey, please" and he delivered! She bounces up and down and the horse actually moves across the floor. See that kitchen in the background? Santa also left that. Addy has been making delicious meals for us ever since.Addy got a play-doh center from her aunt, uncle and cousin. She loves "clipping" and "smashing" the play-doh.

We got a ton of snow the week before and week of Christmas, so we got to play in the snow. Here are my snow angels!

Addy was bundled up really warm like that kid from A Christmas Story.
