James' baby sister was born last Tuesday, January 5th, 2010 at 1:05 PM! Weighing 8lbs 4 oz and 20 inches long. Labor was GREAT! So smooth, I woke up at around 2 am with mild contractions about 5 min apart. I took a bath for an hour and a half, woke up Caleb and headed to the hospital. When we got there I was 3 cm dilated. I got into the bath tub there for an hour or so, got out and I was 5 cm dilated. They were coming pretty strong so I got an epidural. I dilated to a 7 right afterwards. I needed to stay on antibiotics for at least four hours so after the epidural we just hung out and waited. After the four hours were up my doctor broke my water. I was at 8 cm for a little while and then went to 10. I pushed for 15 minutes and she was here!
She has a proud big brother! He was pretty excited and the first thing he asked was if she could play cars with him. :)
