Meet Campbell Leigh

Well for those of you who don't already know, our sweet baby girl has arrived. Campbell Leigh Kirby was born 12-21-09 @ 2:17 PM. She weighed 8lbs 12 oz and was 21 inches long. I had a perfect uncomplicated labor. None of us could believe how big she was, Kellan was only 8lbs 7oz, and I gained much more weight with him, we were expecting a little bitty baby girl.

So far since we have been home (next day) all has been going great. She has been a perfect little lady. I know everyone wants to know what Kellan thinks of his new sister, but I really can't tell you. He has been sick for almost 2 weeks now and been with Bibi and Pa. The little time he was around her he either referred to her as "puppy?" and when we correct him and tell him "no, this is sister" he replies "pister?" . Brady is going to take him back to the doctor in the morning to hopefully get clearance that I can have both my babies at home. I'm crossing my fingers, I miss my little boy !!

Nursery Pictures

Campbell's room is finally done and has been for a few days now. It was a long process and a lot of work but I think it turned out beautifully. We couldn't of done it by ourselves, that's for sure. We had lots of helpers. Brady's sister put the final touches on it last Friday Night. Oh, we still have something to hang above the bed if your wondering why the blank space, but Brady needs to build a frame for it first.

My baby bump

Not wanting to ever forget the beauty of being fat and pregnant, we went for maternity pictures a few weekends ago. I was referred to Jennifer (photographer) from a friend of a friend. The great thing about her is she local, very talented and she offers the CD of the pictures. Check out her blog post from our session to see a few more shots.

Thanks Jennifer, we really had a great time, we'll see you in January for newborn shots !!

Just for fun, here's a few shots from when Kellan was growing in my belly.
