Meeting Baby Hannah

Today we met NaNa in Cookeville to do our kid swap. Riley is going to be baptized Sunday evening and she wanted to be there for that so she took the 3 Overall kids home (and Caleb went along for the ride and to see his cousin get baptized) and bring Taylor back home. They will be back Sunday evening. I have missed my Taylor. Anyway we just have Madison for the next 36 hours and boy is it different to only have 1 child after a house of 5. So quiet and she is content playing all by herself.

We also got to go by the hospital and see Hannah :) We hadn't been planning on seeing her this soon but it worked out were we could. She is absolutely precious and we enjoyed getting to spend some time with all 3 of them. Rachel looks great and is feeling good, Daniel is grinning from ear to ear and constantly taking pictures :) They were going to go home about 5 this evening, they just had to wait for a 4 pm blood draw :( and then they could go home!

Madison loved getting to see the baby. She has a head of dark hair (she reminds me of Madison when she was born) and Madison just kept stroking her hair :) It was very sweet. She also wanted to kiss her over and over. Hannah allowed this like a trooper. Madison even got to sit in Daddy's lap and hold was very cute :) Hannah makes all these cute little noises that made me want another little baby (just not right now).

I got to change her diaper....and got "christened". I was changing her and she peed all over her bassinet :) She was screaming her little head off the whole time :) She has a great set of lungs but only when mad and boy was she mad that I had taken her clothes off and exposed to her to the cold :) She actually slept most of the time we were there though she was wide awake when we got there. Madison loved getting to see her eyes open and watching her suck on her fist/hand :)
