And so it was that "Number 8" did not decide to make their appearance before Friday so a Black Friday Baby it was going to be!
It was already decided that Justin and Sarah would bring Parker Ann and Lila Kate over Thursday evening to spend the night since her induction the next morning would be early. And although I wasn't feeling well, I had promised the traditional tree decorating for not only them but Beckett too. And trust me, the little ones do not let you forget anything so I sent Hubby up to the attic to retrieve the boxes of ornaments and then laid out the ones that couldn't be broken for them to place on the tree.
I haven't ever really been a Black Friday shopper myself, opting to put my Christmas decorations up on that day every year. So a Black Friday Baby sounded good to me! I couldn't wait to meet Number 8 and see if it was a he or she! And it didn't take long at all because by about 10 a.m., the newest member of OUR BIG FAT SOUTHERN FAMILY made their debut...
Meet MISS PEARSON ELIZABETH ROGENMOSER, weighing in at 8 lbs., 8 oz!
We didn't tell the girls if if the baby was a brother or sister and waited until they arrived at the hospital to find out for themselves. We knew that Parker Ann was already so excited but we weren't quite sure how Lila Kate was going to take to a new baby.
It was so much fun not knowing the sex of the baby this time around. And we couldn't be happier to welcome a sweet new little girl into this ever growing family! She doesn't know it yet but I foresee many happy days with those two older sisters of hers and all the cousins to boot. Family holidays and vacations. Birthday parties and playing dolls. Making the best friends for life...Yes, we are so happy and feel so very blessed to have another healthy baby come into our family this year.
