We have grown by two tiny feet

22 Mar

We are now a family of three! Hadley Ellen entered the world at 6:55 pm on Sunday, March 22nd. She is 19 3/4 inches long, weighs 7 pounds 5 ounces and is doing great. We might be slightly biased but we think she is perfect!

There are not a whole lot of exciting or gory details- my water broke at 6am, Kerry shot out of bed, we got to the hospital a little before 7am and then we just waited. I was having a bunch of steady contractions but only felt three of them. So after 11 hours of no progress the doctor suggested a c-section and off we went to the operating room. Twenty minutes later, Kerry was holding our daughter. All is well with all of us! Here are a few photos:

We are looking forward to introducing her to family and friends soon! Thanks for all the well wishes and congrats! We will certainly be taking more pictures for all of you to see.
