We finally had our third baby! It turned out Janeen was right--it was a baby girl. We named her Kenzie Eldredge (I know no middle name, that was Josh). She weighted 8 lbs 14 oz and was 21 inches long. She was by far our biggest baby yet and hopefully the biggest if there are any future children. She made her grand enterance at 6:12 am on Oct 15. The labor nice and short--only two hours from the first contraction to her being born. My prayers were answered because we did make it to the hospital but of course not in time for any medication (I was already a 10 when we got there). The doctor did miss the delivery; he showed up about 5 minutes too late but the nurses did a great job. I think Josh had fun driving, he got to go 100 or so on the freeway. One of my sisters said she was glad I got to the hospital but it would have made a better story if I had had her in the car. If it is true that each additional labor gets shorter than it may be the case with the next one. Caden and Micaela love her and want to hold and touch her all the time. Micaela is having a harder time adjusting I think because she is getting into everything and knows just how to upset Josh and me. Here are some pictures of Kenzie and everyone else. Enjoy!

Today I went to my ob appt and had my group b strep test done and got checked for any progress. My problem is I have had too much progress--I am already almost a 3, about 70% effaced(how is that spelled??) and the dr could feel the baby's head. This would have been great news if I was already 37 weeks but at 36 it is not to good. So now I get to sit here all day and stare at all the boxes sitting in my house and do nothing. Normally having unpacked boxes would not bother me but knowing I can't do anything about it is sort of annoying. Hopefully I make it till Tuesday so I will be 37 weeks until then I am allowed to be lazy(the last time I get to enjoy that for a long time)!
