Lily Kate has arrived!!

6 lbs 2.6 ozs (they are so precise these days)
20 1/2 inches


We are so happy that she is here safe and healthy!  Labor and delivery went well!  Well let's be honest it hurt a lot!!!!!!!  I thought that I remembered how much it hurt, I didn't, but it was worth it!  I was so happy when it was over and I was happy that I was able to do it natural again.  I am not against epidurals but had a really bad experience with Jackson so I opted out again.  There were times that I really questioned my decision but Mike believed in me and helped me through the pain.  I was also blessed with good nurses!  I will blog the whole story later, more for my own documentation but for those of you curious about all the details I will blog those later.  The kids are so in love with her hat it is going to be a challenge controlling their love but I'm sure we will figure it out.
Happy to be home!

The photos are great. So glad everything went well. Can't wait to meet her in person. Great work on the natural child birth, I know the pain. BTW you can't even tell you just had a baby. Your face isn't even fuller.
