Our New little one has arrived!!

What can I can, We are so in love with our new daughter. She is truly a miracle from God!! ``
Our newest daughter arrived on Febuary 9, 2011 at 5:14 pm.
Her name is Rachel Elise and she was 6 lbs 14 oz and 21 in long.

She is beautiful and best of all is a term baby and we had absolutly no NICU time. We feel so extremly blessed by this .

On mon Feb 7, the Dr decided it might be best if we did induce to a couple of issues (nothing really major) I was suppose to go in on tuesday night to start, but when I arrived, I was already in early labor and was having contractions 2-3 min apart, so we ended up not inducing. Wohoo!!

Anyway, about 2 1/2 hours after I had arrived , my water broke. So we new it would now be a matter of time before our newest daughter would arrive.

By early am , I was having steady contractions, but not really progressing, so they started pitosin, but by late afternoon and still no progress and baby heart rate decling, it was decided that it would be best for a c section (there is alot more to this but will save for now).

Mom and baby are now doing well, and are at home and trying to adjust to a new schedule along with daddy and big sister Alexandrea.

Alexandrea loves to hold her sister and is being a great big helper and bib sis already!
