Welcome Katherine!

Our newest bundle of joy has arrived!

Katherine Janet Ann Dixon was born on Thursday, July 17th at 10:45 pm. She is tiny... 5 pds 9oz and 17 inches long. I ended up getting induced as she wasn't growing well enough in utero and my doctors decided she'd do better outside. So, had to run home and scramble to get ready for the hospital that afternoon!

The induction went well, gave me cervadil at 3:00 and that was enough to start the contractions so no pitocin was necessary. She came out tiny, but perfectly healthy and we are happy to be home.

Everyone is doing great and Natalie thinks she's "so cute!"

More photos are here as well:

We'll update the blog with new photos so check on back.

Congratulations! I'm glad to see both Erin and Katherine are well.

Natalie's right, Katherine is so cute :)

Time flies ... I still remember the days when Natalie hadn't arrived yet ... now you have an extended family of four :) I really admire the works you two put in to raise your family.

Best wishes,
