Introducing....Quincy Annette Daw

So on Wednesday afternoon at 2:34 p.m. we welcomed our little Quincy Annette Daw into the world! She was 7 lbs. 10 oz. and 21 inches long and is as healthy as can be. She did have the cord wrapped around her neck twice, but was fine. Her sister still holds the record, apparently we have gymnasts for children, funny that they come from a mom who can't do a cartwheel.
We named her after one of the coolest people I know, my aunt Wendy Annette Wahlen. We are home and doing great and are just happy to be the parents of 3 beautiful little girls, let the madness begin!My 3 little munchkinsMcKinley was VERY excited and told Quincy "We are so glad to have you in our family." She has also made Quincy about 50 cards and announced that she will share all her toys with Quincy, if she would only have the same attitude toward Halle. This morning she said Halle was being mean to her because she "squoze Halle's face like a jellyfish and Halle didn't like it." WOW
Halle isn't quite sure what to think. She gives Quincy kisses, pats her face, and tells her "Hi" everytime she sees her, so far so good. But I'm pretty sure she thinks we've got a short term babysitting job going on, so we'll see what happens.Getting ready to go home.

Thanks to all our great family and friends, everyone has been so great. We are the luckiest people in the world!

The end is in sight...

So if this little girl doesn't decide to make her appearance before then, my doctor will be inducing me on Thursday... so only two more days of this misery that is the 9th month of pregnancy. I really shoudn't complain since I'm getting induced at 38 weeks (the Doc is a little worried about a few things due to Halle's delivery) but after being up many nights with contractions and a false alarm story which is way too sad to even tell, I think I deserve it.

Wahlen Reunion

So this, like almost all of my posts is a bit belated but oh well! At the end of July we went down to Salt Lake for the Wahlen Family Reunion. It was so great to see all of my wonderful family and get to play around for a couple of days. We were SOO excited to go.
Friday we went to the Hogle Zoo, where we broke out the double stroller for it's first test run. It did well, and McKinley is fully aware that soon she will be demoted to walking.

It was SOOOO HOT, so we totally enjoyed the little mist sprayers they had strategically placed around the park. (note - there are some people who won't be happy about me posting this pic, but you'll all agree that it had to be done.)

We got together and planned to wear matching shorts...

We looked at the animals,

We rode the "Conservation Carousel"

And rested in the shade.

That night we ate at Chuck-A-Rama, they have Apple Beer, which I LOVE! We took full advantage of the hotel swimming pool.

The next day we shopped, ate lunch and then had a great time together hanging out at the Park. We played,

ate oreos,

and watched the boys play volleyball.

We had a great time, I'm truly blessed with a great family. We are counting down to Wahlen Reunion 09!
