Introducing...


Baby Girl!

She was born at 12:07 a.m. on March 2nd, weighing 9 lbs, 5 oz, and measuring 20 inches long. She is absolutely perfect!

I had been having contractions during the day on March 1st, but nothing too different than other days. I took a nap, and when I woke up, the contractions started again. These ones hurt a little more, so I took a warm bath. I didn't feel much during the bath, so I figured they had stopped. Not so much! We went to the hospital around 8 p.m. By 11:20 I was fully dilated, and by 11:30 I was feeling the urge to push. Thank goodness for the epidural! I was able to hold off pushing a little while. I pushed for the first time at 11:59, and three more pushes later, out came baby girl! She is much bigger than the other kids - beating them out by over 2 pounds, and her head is HUGE! None of the 0-3 months hats that I knit her fit her very well - they slide right off her head. I'm happy to say the wave jumper fits the baby wonderfully, and hopefully, we'll have a reason to wear it soon!

We are so excited to have her here, and feel that God has truly blessed us with such a beautiful addition to our family.

Congratulations to all of you. Looks like she was worth the wait. And she avoided the other b-days with one of her own! Obviously all that time with you gave her those extra pounds. Hopefully I get a chance to meet the new little miss.

Congrats! She's gorgeous. I'm working on her gift - the pattern is done, I have a few false starts and discovered I don't have the right yarn.
Do you mind if I name the pattern after her?
