Announcing Kate Lanette Gasaway!

Well, I accomplished everything on my list of 5 things to do from my tag on Friday. I was as comfortably settled in bed as I could be being so pregnant that night and at about 11:20 PM my water broke! I called Rachel and asked if she and Tyler could come spend the night here to take care of Daylen, so as soon as they got here we took off for the hospital. We did have time while we were waiting to leave to take one more picture, so here I am as pregnant as I was going to get this time around. We got to the hospital just after midnight and Kate was born at 3:13 AM! It was a pretty fast labor and delivery overall, which I am grateful for. She was 7 lbs even and 19 inches long. She has a massive amount of hair, I think she has more than Daylen has right now. She is an absolute cutie, but I may be biased. She has her Grandma Gasaway's nose, we still are waiting for our red head. We are all doing great, baby is healthy and I am feeling so much better now than I did after having Daylen. I feel so much more energized and I can actually walk at a mornal speed without getting winded. I was ready to come home last night, but it hadn't even been 24 hours yet, so we got to come home about 12:30 this afternoon. It's so nice to be home and not cooped up in a small hospital room. Here are some pictures of our new little bundle of joy!
