Our little girl came into our world on the 23rd! Labor went very well. Dh and I watched the cosby show, played hang man, and laughed alot, which I think helped user her in. But a word of caution: contractions don't feel much better in the middle of a belly laugh brought on by ol' Bill Cosby! OUCH! But they do go by a lot faster and Doc said that laughing actually seems to help stimulate it along.
We're all in love with her, and I have more help from my boys than I could have dreamt. She weighed in at exactly 7 pounds, my smallest yet, 19.5 inches long, and 1 day shy of her due date. My milk came in and she's nursing wonderfully. Caydan also wants to nurse her and is having a hard time wondering why boys can't let babies "eat their boobs".
I hope eveyone is doing well and hanging in there!
