New Family Member!

We welcomed Makenzie Sue Porter to our family on Friday, March 20.

My little sister, Courtney, did an amazing job. After a long labor of frustration and heart-rate fluctuations, it was decided that a c-section would be best. They both sailed through it like a champ.

This is ONE CUTE baby girl!

7 lbs, 8 ounces (I think)
19.5 inches long
Looks like her daddy for the time being, but it will be fun to see how she changes.

As soon as I get some good pictures, I'll post a couple.

Welcome to the family, sweet little girl!

One of the funniest moments occurred AFTER the birth. It was about 9:30 pm, and there were a few people in the hall anxiously awaiting to see this little girl. The surgery happened about 6, and my sister had been in the recovery room. No one had seen her and the baby, except my mom, and we lined the hall outside her room. As the evening progressed, more and more of her husband's family showed up. In the end, there were 18 people standing in the hall!

What a crowd standing in the hall! I felt like we should have made an archway or something for her to enter her room with! Anyhow, the nurse came back down the hall and said, "Wow, there's more of you! You keep multiplying like rabbits!" My sister and I looked at each other, and with a smile, we both said, "Mormons."
