6lbs 12 oz 18.5 inches
Yep...just in case there wasn't enough activity...Nia decided that she was ready to enter the world last night. I have a new neice! Yesterday, my sister-in-law, Amy went to the doctor to find out she was progressing and the baby was breech! So...they dropped off the older two boys and headed back to the hospital last night to attempt to flip the baby and/or take her by C-Section. Nia wasn't in the mood to do this morning at 12:47 she entered the world through a C-Section. We took the big brothers to meet her his morning after we dropped off Seth at preschool. She is pretty darn cute and the brother's couldn't be more excited.

All are doing well...except for the two grandma's who are either stuck in a neighboring hospital or on the road home from South Carolina. We're heading back this afternoon for Seth to meet his new cousin....he's pretty excited not to be the little one anymore! I'll be sure to post pics of the cousins!
Mom is doing as well as can be expected....we're still waiting to hear if she will be coming home today or not. She really just wants to sleep...who would blame her!'s been exciting family dynamics in these it was Seth's special star day at school...but what better than having his 2 cousins come as special guests!

Thank you Krista!
Art said Krista will be on top of things and have a photo of Nia and you certainly do. Great photos of Nia, Elijah, and Lucas. Will look for more with Seth later. You look great in your photo holding Nia.
Talked to Nana and she is anxious to meet Nia. She would have already if it was the same hospital. Glad she is doing so well this morning.

Love and hugs to all,
Art & Reen

Oh good good good! I am so glad to hear good news and see a photo of that beautiful little girl. I got to chat with Sean & Stuar's teachers & their librarian today about Kate's Kart. Sean even wrote a cute leter that I need to share with you - he said he was "Kate's cousin". We'll continue to pray for all the Layman happenings - please let us know how we can help!

Congrats to the King/Layman family! Nia is such a cute baby and you're looking pretty good too, Krista. You are all still in my thoughts and prayers.

Nia is certainly sweet. Our first stop when I got released from the hospital was over to see her. Even got to hold her. We are blessed.
