Kenzie Joanna

Yippee, I have another niece! Maria was overdue by 10 days and was given the midwives concoction several times, then was induced by the gel 2 or 3 times and finally, at 5:11am this morning, Kenzie arrived. Maria managed to labour at home until about 7cm and then once she was at the hospital, had Kenzie just 1 hour and 15 minutes later! Maria def. had a bit of a rough go by not being able to sleep very much the past few days (or at all last night) and then just you know, pushing out a 9lb 7oz girl:) I'll let her blog the rest of the details.
She is a perfect little girl. Like a lot of big babies (both of my boys), they are concerned by her lower blood sugar levels and are `making' her feed every three hours (and with formula too) and pricking her heel every three hours to check if it's improving. So frustrating!! I remember with Koen how exhausting and unnatural the whole thing was. It took Koen 24 hours to be `normal'.
To me, this sweet little girl reminds me of Annika but she is def. her own little person:) When I told Kai her name, Kai said she be called `Meatball' (although Rose Petal was his first choice). I asked why. He said, `Because meatballs are just to nice and yummy!'.
I'm so excited for a new little baby in the family, gotta keep em coming with 4 sisters around:) My sister Jackie was there for the birth. I don't know that I could do it. Seeing people I love in pain just hurts my heart to the core...thank goodness I'm the one that went into labour and not Gary, I couldn't bear to watch him!
I just had a short visit as I had my mother in law at home watching the boys. I may have snuck in another visit this evening. A short one.
Proud auntie Louise!!

Suddenly Sami looks like a super cute giant next to Kenzi. These two are going to be super buddies, like Kai and Ani, being that there are just 6 months apart.
Yay for babies! Yay for family!


  1. Congratulations Louise! She is beautiful. It must be so much fun having kids close together with your sisters. Blessings to your family.

  2. congratulations all around! She's beautiful :)

  3. adorable!! i love the name too!

  4. I want to see her again!!!!!! Such a big, cute little baby!! Of course, it hurt to see reech in pain, however, the pain is normal (although not nice, I"m sure!), expected, and obviously has an end - so that made it more bearable to be a witness to.

  5. yeah!!! SO exciting!!! Congrats Thompsons!!

  6. I agree - yay for babies; yay for the gift of new life.

  7. Oh man, she just has the most darling face...Love her name too! It is at the top of my list if I ever have a 3rd girl!
