Dressing up in Kenna's cowboy hat and flip flops has been fun for Bryn. As well as talking to Aunt Jessica and Ryan on the phone. What she is saying here to Aunt Jessica is that she would like some dorky boy socks to go with her outfit and would like to borrow some of hers. Actually she was asking if Ryan could come and play next Sunday. Cuddling and snuggling with Lauren has been fun for all. Kenna is looking forward to starting Kindergarten on Tuesday. She will be participating in an on-line charter school available to PA residents as an alternative to public schools (we live in a crappy school district) and you had to be 4 1/2 by September 1st to start this year. She is beyond ready. Brad and I have looked at the lessons, she will be done with Kindergarten Math in 2 weeks. This has its advantages where ever we move she can test out of Kindergarten and go 1st grade. Lauren has enjoyed her bath time. The wash clothes that we have are as big as she is, and she loves to have a warm one wrapped around her. As you can see from the photos it produced a smile. Summer wouldn't be complete without a trip (or two or three) to Linvilla Orchards. We went and picked some peaches, pears and two of the biggest tomatoes Kenna had ever seen. Bryn had a good time even though she was a tidge on the short side. She stood on her toes and got this one. She was very proud of it. She carried her peach around in a little box. Here is Bryn and her Giant Peach!

Day one went really well. She was dry all day. We decided pull-ups were not working and went strait to underwear. She went to church and came home in the same outfit she was sent in. Day Two made us question if we should even bother with a day Three. She not once went potty in the toilet. Day Three we felt like we were committed and went ahead with a day three. She did much better this day. I would like to say that it was my parenting skills but in all reality I think it was the Dora Underwear Grandma Norby had bought for her. So far it has now been a week and she is doing well. Pull ups only at nap time and bedtime. She only has one accident a day on average and we are working that out, it is too time consuming to come in from the backyard to go potty.

So being stuck in the hospital during recovery I have learned a few things. 1st I never want a c-section again! 2nd the only good t.v is the stuff I DVR and everything else is crap. I have watched a lot the past 3 days as all I have to do is walk around, feed baby, waste time online, or watch t.v. Here is a list of odd things I have seen on t.v. while flipping through channels in the past 4 days.
- Did anyone know that their is an Air Guitar championship? Well their is. It tours 25 cities and has a championship in D.C. if that isn't odd enough the championship is actually televised and is about as good as it gets for t.v viewing at around 2 am while feeding.
- Danny Davis Ministries will sell you "No Evil Oil" to "anoint" your bills, home, family pictures and what not. It comes with biblical instructions on how to use it.
- Spanish acting is horrible
- from about 11 am to 3pm you have your choice of 4 different court shows to watch.
- the Hallmark channel could be the Golden Girls channel.
I only have to be in the hospital for 6 more hours and I am counting the time!!!

So Thursday evening at about 9:30 Adrienne's water broke. That meant that the time was nigh at hand for the baby to be delivered. We went to Delaware County Memorial Hospital and got checked into our room. Then they pretty much stalled us all night so that the doctors could get their beauty sleep. At about 8:30 Friday morning they started Adrienne on Pitocin (makes the contractions stronger ending in childbirth). They started her epidural about 11:00 a.m. At 12:45 she started pushing to deliver the baby. The nurse was cheerleading Adrienne's efforts to shoot the baby across the room in record delivery time, but as the doctor went to check for the baby, he told Adrienne to stop pushing. Turns out the baby was breech (upside down, i.e.: coming out bum first instead of head first). So, they told us to stay calm and we would do a C-section delivery. First of all, for anyone who has gone through the emotions involved with childbirth, there is no such thing as calm. At least not with us. So we put our best game faces on and a short time later our baby girl was born. We still don't know what we are going to call her, but I'm sure we'll come up with something other than "baby" or "little sister" soon. Stay tuned. She was born August 7th 2009 at 1:47 p.m. She weighed in at 6 pounds and 5 1/2 ounces She measured 18 1/2 inches long She, unlike our other two girls at birth, has hair!!!
