I have a new niece!

Chris and Stacy had their baby on May 23 at around 12:15. Her name is Lily Marie Kuhn. She is the most precious little girl I have ever seen and she is a very good baby so far. She is just precious. Did I mention that she is precious?

Anyway, Mom, dad and baby are doing fine and came home from the hospital today. Chris is going to be a really great dad. Stacy is a good mom already and they are so cute with that baby together. Here are a couple of photos of her.

Sorry I forgot to rotate the last one but you get the idea. Stacy was induced Thursday evening and had her Friday. She weighed 5 lb, 15 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. She looks just like Chris and she even makes the same facial expressions. She has Stacy's nose (thank goodness!) Sorry Chris!
This is a short one but I couldn't wait to post photos.
Hope you are all well.

Quick update...

Hi again,

I know I am bad about posting. We have been furiously busy this last month. Mostly because our house is completely torn apart. I will attach some pictures at a later date. Our remodelling project has finally begun. It started just over a month ago. Our kitchen has been gutted down to the studs and so has our basement. It will be so great when it is finished. We are adding a bedroom in our basement and finishing the bathroom downstairs. So far, they have completed framing of the bedroom, electrical work as well as plumbing in the downstairs bath. The shower has been installed and plumbed. Still no sheet rock but I think when that gets started it will go pretty quickly. The kitchen has been wired for the most part and we have run into a couple of little problems with wiring in the kitchen. We are also replacing the shower valve in the master bath because it leaks and the only way to get to it is through the kitchen so that will have to be fixed first as well.

We have done a lot of eating out. I am familiar with Subway and Arby's especially. But the bright side is, I haven't had to cook much. We have become master chefs with the microwave and toaster oven. I can make a mean grilled cheese in the toaster oven. At least the weather is nice enough now that we can use our grill.

I am feeling pretty well. I have been apparently having a few contractions lately that my doctor isn't really crazy about. I just have to get off my feet and rest awhile. I have been trying to do that but it is really hard for me to sit still most times. I am not able to make our trip to New Jersey for Carrie's pageant. I am really upset about that too. The doctor does not really want me going anywhere just in case I would go into labor prematurely. I would rather be at home if that does happen. David is coming home for a quick visit in June. We are really looking forward to seeing him again! We haven't seen him since last Labor Day. Ryan is going to Hawaii for a band thing. That little rat! I don't think it is fair that he gets to go before we do! I know he will have a good time and I hope he at least brings us some souvs.

It seems that Chris may have sold the house in Qcy. He got an offer today and I think it is a good one. I hope he takes it. He is looking at buying a house in Hannibal. Dwaine and I are going to run up there next weekend and check it out. Sounds like a cute little house he is looking at. It is a brand new construction with a nice yard! Lots of room for the dog and a new baby! Which, by the way, is due anytime now. I can't wait to meet my little niece! She will be here very soon!

Well, that's all for now. Hope all is well. God bless and we love you all.
