Welcome Samantha Rose Francis!

I know it has been awhile since I updated the blog, I will get to it eventually. I have some pics of Caden that need to go up and also some of our new addition! Samantha Rose Francis was born Sunday, Nov 1st at 11:34pm and weighed in at 6lbs 15oz and was 20.5inches long. Due to the fact that she was born rather quick... I didn't have enough time to get all my antibiotics for Group Strep B to protect her. One bag of antibiotics made it into my system, but needed 3 bags. She was also a little in shock because she came out so fast, we were all a little surprised! She spent some time in the Special Care Unit at the hospital and was moved into my hospital room on Tuesday morning. We were finally able to come home Wed night at 10:30pm after her blood cultures turned up negative to any infections. She is doing great and left the hospital weighing 7lbs even...clearly she has grasped the eating concept! She is so cute and already a little spitfire! It is amazing how different her and Caden look and sound. To check out pictures go to and View photos, password: 1101samanthaf
I will get some photos up when I get a chance, but for now we are settling in at the house. My mom is staying with us for a bit which has been a huge help already! We are so fortunate that she was able to come down on Monday morning and help out with Caden and everything really. Caden is very interested in his baby sister and keeps peeking into the pack n' play to check her out. Nia has also approved and likes that there is one more girl in the household.
Hope you all are doign well! Thank you for all the congrats emails/texts/phone calls, we are very exciting for our new addition and cannot wait for you all to meet her!
