Introducing the Cook family

Everyone is blogging these days. We swore we would never have a blog. Most people only publish the best things about themselves on their blogs, and it can be easy to compare yourself at your worst to your friends or family at their best, making you feel less than stellar. But here we are with a new baby girl and we find that it's the easiest way to let family and friends see and hear how we're doing without having to send a million emails all the time. So know that we have struggles just like you and we'd be glad to tell you about them if you just ask. With that disclaimer, we invite you to share our joys in the hopes that yours will increase too.

Here's our little family, featuring Kaylee, the newest addition. She was born 7 lbs 8.3 oz, 21 inches long, at 6:08pm on Sunday, Feb. 22nd, 2009, in Madison Memorial Hospital, Rexburg, Idaho. Please excuse the bruise on her forehead, as she was born face-up and the doctor had to use suction cups to get her out.
