Baby Caroline is here!

Just a quick post of pictures then it's off to bed! Caroline Joy was born March 20. 2011 at 9:29am, weighing 7lbs. 14.2oz., 22in. in length. We are all doing in love with our sweet new addition. Caroline has been an excellent baby so far. Grace hasn't missed a beat and seems to be perfectly fine with having a new baby sister steal the spotlight. We are spending tonight in the hospital and then home tomorrow morning we go.

Isn't waiting fun?! Um...NO! My first of the "checked" appointments with my doc ended with him saying, "I don't think you'll make it to your due date!" Really, doc?! I mean, he's a professional with lots of we take what he says a little more seriously than oh, say, the random people at the grocery store who tell you, "Looks like it's a boy!"
So here we are...a day before Caroline's due date...not in labor. My last day of work was Wednesday and Andrew's is today. (Paid leave time...Andrew=30 days...Emily=0 days)
The house situation has hit a very dumb wall. We are still waiting on our buyer's funding. It was promised mid-March... Our realtor wants to extend the closing date to April 30th...but the seller of the new house won't sign an extension past April 15th. If the $$ doesn't come through by then we will lose our house. So, please take a moment to pray the Federal government gets a little pep in their step and passes the budget!
We are sitting in a semi-clean house filled with tons of tubs of our belongings. Caroline has a room to call her own...just a drawer. And so are the days of our lives...
