September 30th 5:15pm while playing in the driveway with the Zack, Zoey and chalk, Carrie’s water broke with an audible “snap”. Our next door neighbors offered to keep the first two Z’s and we were off to the hospital.
After Zoey I think both Carrie and I were expecting a very easy birth. Zayda however proved a little more difficult then we had anticipated. Apparently, when you have a low water break birth is not as eminent as TV would have you believe. But after 8 hours and 26mins on Oct 1rst 1:41am Carrie gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. She was 19 3/4″ and 6lbs 13.6oz.
The whole family is doing great. Carrie was trying to get out of the hospital after only 24 hours. And surprisingly there hasn’t been significant jealousy from the other critters. Zoey always wants to help with Zayda. And Zack has been very sweet to her. But it is only a matter of time before they figure out that Zayda is here to stay :).
Here are some galleries of our new baby girl:
