I just wanted to introduce you all to my new niece, Sadie Katherine. She was born last night (11/11/08) at 7:38 p.m. weighing 7 pounds and 6 ounces. As you can see from the picture, she is just beautiful.
My sisters and I had 5 boys in a row and, finally, the last two have been girls. Of course, these girls aren't going to be worth a nickel because we're so silly over them and spoiling them with all the cute "girl" stuff that there is out there. Not that we don't LOVE our boys, of course, but there is just something about a little girl.
Now, go here for Ashley's update and some more pics of the Gordon Party of Five.
Edited to add: Please pray for "Sadie Kate"...she has jaundice and is being kept "under the lights". John & Ashley have barely been able to see her. She also has a "splotchy" appearance that has prompted the doctor's to order some bloodwork for a possible infection.
And another update: Jaundice is clearing up. Ashley was "technically" discharged from the hospital yesterday but was given a courtesy room until Sadie Kate can leave. Hopefully today (Friday). She was taken out from under the lights last night and on only the bili-blanket (which makes her look like a glow-worm). They will check her levels this morning and then decide if she can go home.
