Princess #4

Raelyn Lyneth Foote - Princess number four has arrived.  She was born April 16th weighing 7lbs 7oz and was 19 inches long.  She was my first baby to come c-section so that was a whole new experience.  Recovery has been a little slower this go around and I am restless, and ready to get back into a normal routine.

Raelyn has been a great baby.  I think the truth is that by number four I have finally got the newborn routine down and know what to expect, so maybe my babies have not been getting easier, maybe I am just finally getting better at being a mom to a newborn.

Foote is modeling the outfit he was required to wear for the birth.  The nurses kept reminding him to keep his clothes on underneath.  I guess not long ago one of the fathers put the flattering outfit on and took off all his clothes underneath.  It is completely cheap see through material.  I am not sure how you would not know to keep your clothes on.  What was really funny was that Foote remembered talking to a group of guys at church and one of them shared how he had put the surgical outfit on without clothes. If only he knew how much of an impact he made every nurse that came to check on me kept reminding Foote to keep his clothes on.

The girls having their first visit with Raelyn.  Dwyn was not sure what to think of this new little sister

(Me and my girls)  Got to love those hospital shots where you look like you haven't showered or slept for days.
