She's Here!

Well, this is Amanda ready to go to the hospital. She had a her OB appointment on Monday, and they scheduled an inducement for Tuesday morning. This is just before we left. How excited she looks! This is going to be great!
Still excited. Heartbeat...check. Contractions? Hello? Where are they? By noon, the midwife had popped the water, and man, did those contractions come. Amanda was at 4 cm when she went in. She was at 6 cm before she asked for the epidural. (sp.?)
Ten hours later (less than one hour of pushing), here she is. Addison Grace was born at 10:36 PM, December 11. As you can see in the picture, that's a whopping 9 pounds, 6 ounces. Yikes! She came in at 21 inches long. Amanda was awesome. I've never been more proud to call her my wife.
Here's the little giant. Man, was she maaad!
The nurses and the midwife could not believe Amanda pushed out a 9 1/2 pound baby. They called Addy the little sumo wrestler.
'Manda and Addy. Healthy mom and healthy baby.
