Welcome to the world, Lucy May! And a long overdue update!

First off...sorry for leaving you all hanging on out there for nearly 2 weeks!!  Our computer crashed on Thanksgiving Day and we are just now up and running again.  We have been a little busy lately...we had a baby!! 

Lucy May Ferguson came into the world on December 2 at 4:06pm...she weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces, and is 22 inches long!  I will do a whole post on the birthing/hospital experience this time around, because it sure was different the second time! 

Lucy is doing wonderfully!  Both my girls have different blood types than I do, which I guess is not too common, so they run a higher risk of being jaundice.  Molly was fine, and Lucy was a little more jaundice, but we took her in today and she is perfect!  When we left the hospital on Friday, which the nurses had a fit we left only 24 hours after we had her, she resembled a glow worm, but now she looks fabulous!  And she has surpassed her birth weight.  When we left the hospital Friday night she weighed 8lbs 4oz, and today at the doctor's office she weighed 8lbs 9oz.  And that's only one day of having milk! 

Thank you all for the prayers, thoughts, gifts-good grief you all are too generous and nice!!  And just support in general!  I promise, promise, promise now that we are back up and running I will update a lot more!!
