Baby McKenna Here

My sweet baby McKenna is here and all is well! Everything is great with both her and me. She is a very sweet baby and very good nurser, which is always nice. Thank you to everyone for your prayers; I really can feel the strength of them. More to come in the future as I get to know this new person and figure out life with three children!

    So glad to hear you’re both doing well. We will miss you while you’re away – adjusting to life with 3. You will do great; we all know it. Thanks for all of the good advice and support as we try to figure this parenting thing out.

    Jodi, what do you mean by a new post? If you mean something like this one (Baby McKenna Here), only I can do that. If you mean a comment…you did that 🙂 Let me know if you need more help.

    Shelia, you are one of the few I ever hear say 3 is easier than 2. So far, I do find 3 easy. I am wondering if it gets harder once all three are moving around by their own will 🙂

    lol…Thanks Jenny. I do find it to be a good resource 🙂
