Our Baby is Here

Thank you everyone for your prayers and encouragements. Everything went just as I hoped for.
Our beautiful baby girl was born on April 19th at 3:02pm. She weighed in at 8lbs 7oz and was 20.5 in. long.She looks very chubby and has a head full of dark brown hair.

I did have my epidural from the very beginning and had a short, easy and uneventful labor ending in my second successful VBAC!!!
Everything is perfect and we are very happy.

The siblings are all very excited with the exception of Alex who is looking very suspiciously at his baby sister. Not that he doesn't like her, he just doesn't seem to know what "that" is.

I'll introduce her pretty soon, after I download the pictures.

Congratulations! I was praying for you and the new baby on Saturday morning,so I had to check your blog, to see how you were doing. I was so excited to read that you were going to the hospital.
I am glad that the birth went well, are you feeling good?
Can't wait see some pictures and find out her name!
Lots of love,
