I highly recommend it to anyone with more kids then they have hands!
Disclaimer: I was present the whole time Kippi and Rieken held Baby T so technically it may have been more work for me. It was worth every second though because in the end they feel so special not to mention it helps them bond and learn all at the same time.
Kelten taking Tiernen for a ride in the Moby Wrap (I love that wrap!) while I made dinner. So awesome to have a child big enough and responsible enough to handle this!
Rieken feeding Tiernen his first ever bottle feeding. (They both loved it)
Kippi on burping duty (she always gets the biggest burps)
Kippi giving snuggles and kisses to her littlest brother
Kelten doing laundry SO nice!
Kippi changing Tiernen's Diaper. Rieken watching to make sure she does it right:)
Rieken giving Tiernen moochy kisses (his words not mine)
Tiernen a very happy well loved, none the worse for wear baby. I love those chunky cheeks!

Back to the hospital... We got monitored and had another ultrasound. The baby did better during that test but he still wasn't really up to par and the decision was made to take him for sure. He was born at 9:49 pm and it was a dang good thing too. There was a ton of meconium and it was really thick. What this meant was at some point he had gone into stress and had a bowel movement in utero. The fact that he didn't have to go the NICU was such a huge blessing. They really worked hard to get his lungs suctioned out so he was breathing well. If we would have waited even until Monday the results could have been so much worse. Hanging out in meconium can cause the baby to go septic and sometimes they can't bounce back if it has been to long. We are so grateful for a doctor who did such a wonderful job and for the nurses and ultrasound tech who where so on top of things. We are beyond grateful for the privilege of bringing home a healthy and beautiful baby boy. He is perfect!

I would like to note that I did try to get that information out to everybody on the first go. If you look at the second picture you will see that Tiernen’s name card is in the frame. If you click on that picture it enlarges greatly and you can see name, weight, length, etc. I was just being a little lazy by putting it in the picture.
So the numbers are these:
Weight-8 lbs. 7.7 oz.
Length- 20 in.
Head- (for all you people who deliver vaginally) 35 cm~ 13.78 in.
Chest-36 cm ~14.173 in.
Date and Time of Birth- Thursday 5 June 2008, 9:49 PM
Now that we have taken care of the details we will move on to the funner stuff, more Pictures! Yes I know that funner is not a real word, but I like it.
Pictures with Kiprianna will be forth coming, so don't go feeling all bad for her yet. I just need to bring the camera home from the hospital and download the pix.
Until Niki returns I remain faithfully yours,

Kippi: Mom when are you going to have that baby so you can finally teach me how to be a mom!?
Me: (thinking... I thought that’s what I do on a daily basis... Guess I need to kick it up a notch.)
Kelten: Hey mom I finally figured it out!
Me: figured what out?
Kelten: what your belly looks like
Me :( great) what's that bud?
Kelten: A zebra with a sunburn. Only your belly is white with red stripes not black ones ... Get it? HA HA
Me: Nice... I'm so glad you finally figured that out I would hate for you to lose any more sleep over that one.
Me: (to Karl) Ugh My heartburn is so bad I feel like my food is just sitting in my throat and the only thing between keeping it down or it coming up is a deep breath.
Karl: Hey Babe
Karl: if you’re going to puke just tell me to move so you don't hit me "k".
Me: Uh o.k. no prob... Thanks for the concern.
Karl: Trust me I am concerned.(snore...)
Rieken: Mommy, I love you
Me: AH I love you too Rieky
Rieken: Now get you belly out the way so I can be by you "k" (bossy like)
Me: moving the monster belly as much as possible to make room for my soon to be littlest big brother.
Rieken: humph did you hear me? I said I loved you... ( all grumpy and put out)
Me: Yup and I love you. Now come snuggle me.
Rieken: humph.. (frown... Lightbulb face, big smile) Okay (and he sprawled on my belly and laid there smelling me and giving me kisses for a nice long while.)
