SURPRISE!!!

Well, we were. :-) We have spent the last 5 months thinking that our baby was a boy...and we got the shock of our life when "he" came out a "she". Callie Joy Yenerich was born this afternoon at 2:07pm weighing in at 7lbs, 7oz and is 19.5 inches long. She's beautiful and we are completely in love with her. She is much more vocal than Noah was and a very good eater. I feel great. The pain meds are doing wonders so I haven't felt much in terms of pain for quite some time.

Everyone is healthy. Dave just ran down to the van for some Ibuprofen for himself and to call so that Noah can come visit this evening. He was such a great support. I know that he has been having some back problems himself, but he was so great about seeing my needs before I could voice them and really taking care of "his girls". He is thrilled to have Callie and is already concerned about the hold that she will have on him. He's bad enough with Noah. All Callie will have to say is "dad" and he'll be a goner (sp?). :-)

Callie is getting her check-up now and so I have a few minutes to type. After Noah gets here this evening, we may try to take a few pics and then Dave can post them.

A few things about visitors: We would love to see you...tomorrow. :-) I know that I will be more than ready to see people by then. Tonight we are hoping to let Noah have some time with his little sister and then lay low. We're here until Saturday sometime so come whenever.

If you are planning on visiting, I just wanted you to be aware that there was a fetal demise two rooms over from where I am. So, as you are walking in the hallways be aware of family members who might be in mourning. We really want to be respectful and not add to their sorrow. Thanks.

We'll try to upload some pictures soon.

Love,
Dave, Kim, Noah, and Callie

I heard the news from Sheena and Jonell--I am SO super excited for you!!! I had a dream last night that it was a girl...but in my dream you named her Maria. I definitely like Callie Joy much better! My middle name is Joy, so I will always feel like I have a special bond with Callie! CAN'T WAIT to meet her!!
