Channing Iris

This is the reason why my blog posts have been few and far between.

She's here and I love her so much!

Channing Iris Peterson
March 22, 2010
7 lbs. 9 oz.
18 3/4 inches
3:48 pm

I have always been about 2 weeks early.
This little one decided to make me wait.
So I was induced a week early
I couldn't handle being pregnant anymore.

Everything went well.
We are both home and healthy.

Bailey and Beau love her,
love her,
love her!
Bailey just keeps saying,
"Mom, she's so cute!"

Beau told her once when she was whimpering in her sleep,
"It's okay there's no monsters in our house."

It's crazy to have 3 kids,
at home.

I love my family!

This picture my dad took
10 minutes
after she was born.
Isn't it precious?
Look at that huge grin,
she loves here mama
was just as excited to see me
as I was
to see her.
Here she is sleeping soundly in the hospital bed
as we were getting ready to leave.

Look at this gown!
A good friend of mine made this for Channing.
I was so excited when she told me she had something for me
I know how amazingly talented she is with sewing.
So, I figured it would be something she made.
She also made me one of those
cute, wet wipe containers that's covered
in the same fabric.

Thank you Diane, I love both of them.
(she's also made the dress Bailey is wearing
on our Christmas card.)
I know this is only a few but don't worry, there will be plenty more in the next week.
