The first "Rosebud" of spring....

After what seems like an extremely long 39.5 weeks our little Rosebud has finally arrived! At 11:41am on January 26 2009, Audrey Joy Stone was born! She weighed in at a healthy 8lbs 2oz and is 20" long.

The birth story, a tale to tell will have to wait until a coherent thought is more than just a novelty and when my brain feels a little less freeze dried.

But for now, here she is!

Unloading her "Lil'bud" at home.

First time holding Audrey. Bethany could hardly wait the last 2 months to be able to hold her little sister.

They are both my "property", as is the big sister who was en route.

She is really stunning! Way to go, you made it through another one. Can't wait to hear how this one went down. Great name too! It was on my short list. Welcome to the multiple-daughter club!

Congrats Ashley! I still can't believe we had our babies on the same day! I can't wait to hear your birth story!! I was dreading labour so bad this time, but I had a way better time than last time. I love the name too. I bet Bethany loves being a big sister as does Makenna!
