Kaitlyn Elisabeth Perkins

Here we are bright and early just before we left to go to the hospital. Its always fun to get a tummy shot before the baby comes.

Ryder wanted to get his picture taken with Mama

We took a picture of us right before I started to push. This is always the part when I realize that yes I am actually going to have a baby.

Kaitey came out weighing 6.14 pound and 18.5 inches long

Everything went SO smooth with her delivery, it was SO nice. The only problem we had was that my right leg as so numb from the epidural. It took a long time for it to get any feeling in it. As you can tell in the picture she has really chubby cheeks. I could just pinch them all day.

Ryder is so excited to be a big brother. He loves baby Kaitey so much. He is always wanting to hold her and kiss her. I was worried about him having jealousy issues but it hasn't been bad. I try to give him lots of one on one time.

Don't you just want to pinch those cheeks? I feel like she is a little Perkins baby. She looks a lot like her Daddy. She has the ears for sure like her Dad.

My hospital bed was over taken by my kids. I still can't believe that we have two kids.
Poor Mitch, I told him that he wasn't going to stay at the hospital at night with me but then I went all emotional on him the second night and made them sleep over. He is such a good husband. I even got very pretty flowers from my boys.

She did NOT like her car seat at all. 

Here we are all ready to go home.

All I can say is that we have the best baby ever. She loves to sleep and eat. She wakes up once or twice during the night just to eat and then goes back to bed. When she is awake she loves just to look around and be happy. She will yell at you if you don't feed her fast enough but as soon as she is eating she will eat it all up. She loves to cuddle with everyone. She looks really cute in just a diaper but I love dressing her up and having her wear bows.

Ryder LOVES to hold his sister but it only last for a minute or so. His favorite is to make it look like she is talking. We started potty training him this week because I really don't like changing two bums. He is doing better but gets busy doing things and forget to go potty until its a little too late. He is just a funny funny boy.
All we know is that we LOVE our kids and are so blessed to have them!


  1. Congratulations and YES- I do want to pinch her cheeks!

  2. She is so cute! I can't wait to hold her.
