Introducing Rachel Ava

Well, they did induce me on Friday the 21st like I suspected they might. It's a long story that will have to wait for another day. I just thought I'd post the basics about Rachel's arrival and a few pics for now.

She arrived on April 23rd, 2006 at 7:46pm weighing in at 7lbs 13.4oz with a length of 20 7/8 inches.

She looks amazingly like her big sister did at the same age. It's actually kind of creepy how much they look alike. For the first few days I couldn't stop myself from calling her Olivia constantly.

Anyway, that's all for now. Olivia is calling for me and Jason is just back to work for the first time today. So, for the first time I'm on my own for the whole day with both of them. I'm keeping pretty busy, let me tell you!

So, here's the part eveyone wants anyway... The pictures!
