Finally taking a second to post my proud mama note..

Katelyn Elise is here! She was born on March 30 at 11:21p, weighed 7.1lb and 20.5in long.

She is absolutely beautiful!

My birth story is alot different than I expected it to be, probably very different than most here at MDC (probably would get eye rolls from alot of folks here actually) but it was very enjoyable and unforgettable.
(Yes, I went ahead with induction, yes I said yes to the epidural- and yes, I probably could have done without either but in the end, looking back I am very happy with the way things went.)

She is a champion nurser- although we did get a talkin' to by the doc about not letting her fall asleep after 5 mins of nursing-bad for supply building. With a little coaxing, she nurses for a good 10-12 per side now.

Hey, healthy mom and healthy baby is what everyone wants. You got both! Eye-rolling to anyone who loses the big picture.
Congrats on the birth of your babe! Enjoy!!

Congrats, Kellykins--and welcome, Katelyn! (Beautiful name, by the way!)

I find it funny that our girls, who were due on the same day, were born three weeks apart . . .

CONGRATULATIONS!

eye rolling, schmeye rolling! The important thing is that you had the birth you wanted and a birth that gave you a healthy baby. You had both! Births are all so different....it'd be crazy of anyone to look differently on someone who made an educated choice about their birthing process. Will you post the birth story? I'd love to hear how Katelyn came into the world!

Enjoy your babymoon, and way to go, mama! You did great!

I will post a birth story soon... It really was awesome and unforgettable. Thanks for all the congrats!!

She has a website up, more to come on it soon, too.

It has pictures from her birth day so far- and is sort of a photo-journal birth story.

Thanks!
The hat is from the volunteer womens league - they make all sorts of little goodies for the newborns. And yes, she has long, beautiful eyelashes, like her daddy. Lucky girl.
