Introducing.....

Kathleen
Sue

6 lbs 3 oz
18 3/4 inches long

Born 8-19-09 at 3:50 pm

I was induced into labor yesterday morning at about 8 am. Things took a slow start but I finally started having contractions about every 5 minutes by 11:30 am. I had moderate labor pains until about 3 pm and then they started getting pretty intense. The nurses called in the doctor shortly after that and in 5 or 6 pushes we were looking into the face of this precious little girl!


Side note: There were 3 nursing students attending the Ob ward yesterday who watched her be born, I guess that made their day. It was their first day of classes and they actually got to attend a birth, they seemed pretty excited.

She really is so beautiful, Laura.

I think I speak for us all when I say that boy, we sure awaited her arrival on pins and needles!

I love the first hours after birth, when baby is so alert and so calm, don't you?

The picture of Ian looking at her in the warmer really touched my heart.

I saw your dinner in the background and it reminded me of how hungry I always am after birth!

Take care of yourself....I wish it was me winging my way toward you to visit!

*Hugs!*

Check your home for damp locations inside the construction for those who have carpenter ants. Carpenter ants are very interested in moisture content, when you start having a problem with them, chances are that you do have a problem someplace. Once you find and solve that dilemma, the carpenter ants will go forward normally. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Eyua34222[/url]
