Genevieve Danielle Gagnon. Born today at 11:49 am after an intense FAST labor and deliver... 30 minutes total from first hard contraction to delivery. OUCH!

I'm not really together enough to write her birth story as I'm still a little in shock but needless to say I am so happy to have her here, she's so damn tiny compared to what Hannah was. I'm SHOCKED she is smaller especially since she was 5 days late! I will post a bunch of pics later however it happened so bloody fast and it was so damn chaotic that we didn't videotape or get any pictures of the actual birth. Damn! LOL

STATS:
8 lbs 13 oz.
20.5 inches

Anyhoo here's my little beauty 6.5 hours old Genevieve Danielle Gagnon:

Fantastique!

Congrats, Erika! I love her name! (really wanted a French name for our babe but it never seemed to work)

Those fast births are shocking, aren't they? Hope you are feeling well!!!

Congrats, Erika!

(And may I just say that an 8lb 13 oz baby does NOT seem small to me!)

Awww ... what a sweet little face! And what a gorgeous name for a gorgeous little girl!

Oh, and a great bit WOW for the 30-minute labor and delivery -- you're a champ, mama!
