Lily Madelyn has arrived!


Just wanted to send out a quick picture of the newwest addition to our family...the long awaited Lily Madelyn.

Born 3.2.09
@ 11:23 am
8 lbs 3 oz
20 in tall

Labor was crazy. We got here at 6:15am, got settled, dr came and broke my water at about 7:30am. Not much longer after that I was getting some pretty serious contractions. Around 9:30am, I agreed to a dose of Stadol for the pain. I immediately fell asleep and got a little loopy. By 10am-10:30 the contractions were pretty intense, LOTS of back labor. OW! And around 11ish, I was begging the nurse to get the dr, everything after the Stadol was a bit of a blur, but I do remember telling my mom that the nurse didn't know what she was doing and I told Todd over and over again to shutup. LOL. All was forgiven though, and I am pretty sure no one permenantly hates me.

Breastfeeding went awesome right at first, but went downhill around 7:30pm. It wasnt for about 3 hours later that she ate and seemed content enough to sleep. She is not sleeping near as much as Jonah, so this is real different for me.
I'm gonna go to sleep now though, because I will need to feed her again in about an hour.
Lovr you all and thanks for standing by me. This journey is not over yet and I will still need all of your love and support and encouragement. You are all simply the best, thank you.

What a beautiful, beautiful baby girl! Congratulations. She is darling. My baby is going to be two next month---bitter sweet...because as much as I loved my newborns...that infant stage was not very kind to me. I just found your blog today as well. It is beautiful.
