I want to take some time to document Kate's birth story, and a few details about our hospital stay. I am not quite ready to sit down and write that out yet, so for now it will just be photos from our days in the hospital. :)
Kate Elise Echols was born on Tuesday, April 15, 2014. She weighed 8 lbs, 10 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. I was at 39 weeks, 6 days gestation.

|Nanna & Papa|
|Aunt G (Kate - you guys are going to be great friends...trust me!)|
|This photo of my dad snuggling Kate just melts me!|
|Uncle Rodney looks good holding a little girl!|
|Jacqueline came to visit and love on Miss Kate|
|Big brother holding Kate for the first time - LOVE this photo!|
|Had fun taking a few quick pictures while at the hospital - a story on that later...|
|Miss Mary came to love on Kate|
|Heading home with this precious bundle!|
I couldn't get out of bed the first day, and apparently decided not to take many photos over the next few days - so I'm missing pictures of Scott's family. I will need to get some of those and post them later. They definitely have been loving on her as well. :) Little girl is spoiled and loved more than ever. We are so thankful!
