introducing.....

On April 3, after 45 hours of labor, 45 minutes of pushing, stopping and starting labor 3 times, a 4th degree episiotomy, and a fight between my nurse and doctor, Mr. Perfect and I brought our miracle child into this world.

Ella Grace was born at 12:54 pm on April 3. She was 20 inches long and weighed 7 pounds 13 ounces with a head circumference of 14 3/4. Off the charts. It's going to house her big old brain! She is absolutely perfect and we are completely head over heels in love with her already.







Our first picture as a family of three... Yes, I know I look rough.


And don't you worry... Her birth story is coming soon. It's great birth control.

45 HOURS?! Wow. I'm glad that it had such a happy ending, though :-) And considering what you went through, I'd say you look pretty great in those pictures! Congratulations!

OMG...and I thought mine was bad. Although...my nurses and doctor also got into a fight, but decided not to hash it out in front of us...instead, it was so awkwardly quiet in the delivery room. You poor thing...I can't wait to hear the story!
And, your daughter is beautiful. Don't you find it funny that we took almost the exact same pictures...first family photo from the bed, daddy with baby, etc.
We are SO MUCH alike!
