Family of 5! Ty and I are officially out-numbered...
After a false alarm the week before, out little baby decided to finally come. Labor started during our post-Christmas shopping. By 8pm I was sure this was the real deal and we went to the hospital. The labor was worse than it was with Ava Mae and Christian, but eventually my favorite friend pinched me in the back and my lower extremities thankfully went numb. Thank heaven for modern medicine... Things went fairly quickly once I was ready. All-in-all it went really well. We still haven't been able to figure out whether Bennett looks more like Ava or Christian, part of each. As you can tell, the kids really love Bennett. Ava wants to hold him all the time and can't wait to help at home and Christian is quite possessive of his little brother and insists that his name is "baby" not Bennett (as you can see in one of the videos).
