Y3W | Meet Reese Mckenzie

I'm so happy to introduce you to my precious new niece, Reese Mckenzie!

She just could not wait to come into this world, let me tell ya. She put her mama through so much {including a stopped labor at 35 weeks, stress tests, growth ultrasounds, etc.} Whew... baby girl's got things to do in this world, and right away, apparently!

With a November 11th due date and a scheduled c-section for November 4th, Baby Reese made her early debut yesterday morning at just 36w6d. They attempted to stop labor a second time, but Reese was not having it. She was determined to make yesterday her birthday.

And she did.

Sweet baby girl. I'm happy to report that mama and baby are doing just fine!

I'll have to admit though... our family doesn't really know what to do with this "normal-sized" baby. We're quite accustomed to our monster babies, thankyouverymuch. They all have about 2 pounds on little Miss Reese! But I think we'll keep her anyway. She's quite cute, don't ya think? =)

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. I'm sure I'll be spending the majority of it, loving on this new baby girl! She couldn't have come at a better time and I'm so thankful for all the joy she has brought our family thus far.

I want to send out a ginormous congratulations to my sister Kristi, brother-in-law Matt, nephew Benjamin and niece Gracie. I love you guys so much and I am so happy to have Reese join our family.

PS- Brynn just breathed a huge sigh of relief. She's glad she's not the youngest anymore and that Ben, Carter & Grace now have someone new to pick on.

Sorry Reese. Aunt Jenni loves you!
