Baby news!

Uncle Ben and Aunt Corineah recently received a phone call from Nana and Papa Godsey announcing the newest addition to Corineah's side of the family on Tuesday morning! My sister, Emily, went into labor about 2 1/2 weeks early and delivered our new neice after about 10 hours of labor! In addition to being extremely unprepared, Emily was also very upset that she wasted her catfish filets because her water broke about 7:30 on Monday evening as she sat down to eat supper. Here are a few pictures, visit my facebook page to view the rest!

With that being said, Ben basically had to hide the keys from me to keep me in Lincoln until Tuesday afternoon. We made a quick trip home last night to see Mommy and Honey. Ben also got some night fishing in with Grady and Spencer. We were back in-time for Ben to put in about 4 hours this afternoon.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures: Nana Godsey holding baby "Honey Christine" who was 8 lbs. 1 oun. and 18 3/4 in. long. Everyone has to fight Nana for their shot at the baby. Papa Darin couldn't hang out with us in the hospital because we're in full swing wheat harvest. But he was almost all night with Emily through labor and then had to go back to work yesterday morning, but we caught up with him after he got off work!
This is actually Kenya after being acquainted with Honey for a couple of hours, giving "Baby Sister" a few kisses.

Aunt Kait finally got her turn to hold the baby and used the breast feeding pillow to help her support the baby.

More kisses from big sister.

This is the best picture of the baby, with her eyes open. She has an olive complexion just like her older sister. Very pretty, but not as much hair as Kenya. We hope it will be as curly as pretty as Kenya's.

Kenya just met her little sister, Honey. Kenya was missing Mommy very much and didn't really care about the baby at this point. She eventually wanted to "HOLD MY BABY SISTER!"

Uncle Ben took his turn with Honey, but if you can tell - he was quite unsure of himself. Kenya loves playing with her Uncle Ben and I can venture to guess Honey will be the same. Kids just love him!
Finally, Aunt Corineah got to take her turn with baby Honey. She was very tiny - and I was well informed that I know nothing about babies and have a lot to learn before we have our own.
That's about it for us, Ben's visiting friends this weekend while I dog-sit and study for my defense. I'll update next week my progress and stay tuned, I'm travelling to Quebec next weekend for a few days! Hope your enjoy your 4th of July weekends!
