Christmas came early.....

and my how we are excited! My doctor induced me on Thursday afternoon the 2nd, after an ultrasound showed that baby would be about 9 lbs. Since my due date was actually the 9th, he was scared to wait another week. So about 4:00 he broke my water and started me on pitocin. Makai Abinadi joined us at 1:56 a.m. on Friday morning, weighing in at 8 lbs. 9 oz and 21 inches long. He is healthy and delivery went smoothly. We feel very blessed to have a healthy Christmas baby.
He is adorable and a great baby so far. The kids love having him around and Aidan loves to have a little brother.
Here is daddy and wide eyed baby Makai.


Four of the loves of my life! To bad we didn't get one of all of us together!

Elena is super excited to have him and is a great little mommy and wonderful helper.
(Although, she does tend to monopolize him from her brothers!)

What a great way to start the holiday season than with a new little angel. We feel very blessed to have him in our lives.
