Introducing...

~ Bennett Tyler Kearl ~
7 lbs, 13 oz.
20 inches
2:54 am, 12.28.08



Ava and Christian were excited that Bennett brought each of them their own little baby to take care of!



Family of 5! Ty and I are officially out-numbered...


Ava and Christian love, love, love their new baby Bennett!


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).


Ty and I can hardly believe we have a family of 5!

Yay! Congratulations. When I saw the first picture of Bennett I thought he fit right in with your family. He's so cute--really, he doesn't have the beat up squished look like other newborns can have:). Give me 5 1/2 months and I'll be joining you in the outnumbered club.

I just have to leave another comment and say the videos were awesome. So fun to see (and hear!) little Bennett and then his Daddy speaking so sweetly to him and introducing him to the world. Ava and Christian are so cute with him. I love that Christian wouldn't give him up to Grandma until he was good and ready.

Joe and Amy said...

Congrats Lou! I am so happy for you guys!

We missed seeing your cute family and your mom and dad at the wedding, but it was great to see Amanda and Amber and their families. It's been way too long!!!

We need to come and see you guys sometime. We're too close not to.

I told Joe to come in and see the cute pictures of your third baby...he said, "How does she have three, she just got married last year?" Time flies doesn't it?!

Babies are very sweet! It's only been 8 weeks for me and somehow the amnesia is already starting to settle in...you know, the "it doesn't hurt that bad...pregnancy isn't so bad"...I thought by the fourth I would be singing a different tune. But I do have to say though it's not the pregnancy and childbirth that are hard for me, it's taking care of all of the needs of each little person...thats what gets me! Good luck!
