She was welcomed into this world at 6:33pm Saturday the 6th. I had gone into labor around 5am on Friday morning, labored for 36 hours, and eventually had to have a c-section. She scored an 8/9 on her Apgar, and she's doing awesome. We're so excited to have her here. Her birthweight was 7lb 12oz and she's 18.5in long.

I can't even begin to tell the whole birth story. The past few days have all been a blur. So, here's pictures! Sorry they're all from my phone, we totally forgot to pack the camera in my hospital bag.

Baby's first picture:

Me and baby, right after she was born. I look gnarly, just to warn y'all.

She is absolutely adorable!!! And for 36 hrs of labor and major abdominal surgery I don't think you look too shabby.
Congratulations!
