She's Here!!

I went to the doctor on Monday and he said I had started to dialate and if I wanted they would induce me on Wednesday. Of course this was music to my ears so I said yes. So on Wednesday morning we dropped the kids off at my cousin's house and went to the hospital. This picture was Stan's idea. He thought it would be funny if the kids tried to hold up my belly. Tyson thought it was pretty funny too. So they started me at noon and by six she was here. It was pretty crazy at the end. At 5 the contractions started to get pretty bad but they were still bearable so I decided to wait for the epidural. I was not sure if I was going to want one anyway because my kids come so fast when they decide they are ready. Then at 5:30 things got pretty intence. It hurt and I was only at a 6, so I decided it was time for the epidural. They said he would be about 20 minutes and I could wait. Well he made it to the door before the baby came. The doctor did not even make it for the delievery!!! She came so fast it was nuts. During one contraction I hurting soo bad and then I had to push so we called for the nurse and it was another contraction and and half before they answered. So they all come running in and I could not stop pushing. They are trying to get the bed ready and out came the baby right onto the bed!!! The nurse hurried and sucked out her mouth and nose and she started crying right on the bed. All the nurse had to do was move her so her feet came out. If the bed had not been there she may have fallen on the floor. It was crazy. It all happened so fast that it took a while to realize that she was here. Stan and I were both in shock.
But she is healthy and great. She was 7 lbs 5 oz and 20 1/2 inches long. The kids think she is great. It took us a day to name her but we finally decided on Lily Anne. Emma would love to hold her all day long if she could. It is really fun to see how loving the kids are towards Lily. It is also great having them at my inlaws for the week. I am just glad that everything went so well and that she and I are healthy.


Emma is not the best picture poser. She is enjoying herself even though she doesn't look like it.
