Announcing the Arrival of Jane Katherine Kunz

It has been way too long since I have posted but things will definitely be more regular now that our baby girl is now here.

Jane Katherine Kunz was born on Tuesday November 22, 2011 at 4:45 pm weighing 6 lbs 11 oz. She was able to make it home for a later Thanksgiving dinner, something that both of her parents are most grateful for.

Her official due date was supposed to be on December 8th so she was early at 37 weeks and 5 days (though theoretically "term" although the due date is such an imperfect science) so we were really not prepared for her to get here so early. My mother was over her due date for all 3 girls and had to be induced, as well as several of my friends who recently had babies locally (3 in total) were all over their due dates as well so I just assumed that would be the case. Also, my parents bought tickets out to come and visit for Dec. 8-14th and so I thought that with our luck, she would be born the day that they left. Someone asked William while he was at church today what I did to get her here so quickly and my response would be that I planned to work up until December 2nd so we were just not fully ready for her to arrive.

I am so very excited for you both. There is some research into holidays and the emotions surrounding them leading to early or later birthing... maybe you just needed her out so you had room for the holiday baked goods instead ; ) Teasing you. Welcome to the world of parenting baby girls-- I know you'll both be wonderful parents and am wishing you the est.
