Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Proverbs 31:30

Finally, a blog post, lol!
Finally, our baby girl made her much anticipated arrival.

Ellasyn Claire
Dec 21st @ 12:42 pm
weighing 6.13 & 20.5" in length

To say that we are completely in love is a total understatement! She is wonderful & such a blessing to our family.
We are so incredibly blessed!

This is where I will ramble & record some details I don't want to forget;
6:00 am: checked into the hospital at .1
7:30 am: water broken & pitocin started at a 2
8:30 am: epidural administered at a 3
8:45-11:00 pm: nap on and off, measured at a 4
12:00 pm: woke up to extreme pressure. Nurse Robin checked my dilation & I went from a 4 to a 10 in an hour. She begins to prep the bed & room and calls Dr. Yancey.
12:15 pm: Robin has me do a practice push. As I am pushing, she has Tripp take a "look" as the baby is crowning. She asks me to stop pushing so that Dr. Yancey can get there.
12:25: Dr. Yancey arrives and we start pushing. Tripp counts for me, a little too fast at first, lol.
12:42: After six rounds of pushing, Ellasyn was born. One. Of. Our. Greatest. Moments. Ever!!

Tripp & I were the only ones in the room as she was born. My friend Tami was there in the beginning and afterward & captured some amazing pictures for me. My brother Jay, his wife Amy & there two children brought Alex to the hospital and were in the waiting room as the baby was being born. My mom made it right after she was born.
