Friday December 3rd 2010, bright & early at 5 am we headed to the hospital. I was checked in, and ready to go. My pitocin was started at 9 am and we waited... Contractions were slow to start & I was progressing slowly. Around 1 pm my doctor came in to break my water. I tried to wait for the epidural for as long as I could. I waited until my contractions were bringing tears to my eyes before I left them put that huge needle in my back. It was soo uncomfortable, I seem to not remembering it hurting so bad when they put it in. But dang it hurt! My fingers were white from squeezing Andys hand. Poor guy.. 4 pm the doctor came back to have a little look and said she was going to come any time, so he would stick around. About 10 minutes later I felt the pressure! Called the nurse, doctor came in got all suited up and 2 contractions later, at 4:47 pm our little girl was here. I couldnt help but cry the first time I saw her, laying on my belly she was perfect. I cried for a solid 10 minutes, I couldnt ask for a more perfect girl. Andy proudly cut her cord, sometime ask him to describe it, its kinda funny. She weighted in at 6 pounds 1 ounce, tiny little thing, i didnt know babies came that small. 19 inches long. She has super long legs & her daddys feet. Long long finger toes! So cute! We had soo many visitors while we stayed in the hospital, by day two I was ready to be left alone. I didnt want to see another person! I am so lucky to have a great Mom & Dad who so willingly brought Andy some dinner, and fed our dogs. Thank you to everyone that came to see us, Andee Kae was born into an amazing family. kristofer loves his little sister to death! His only complaint, that she might cry at night! She hardly cries, unless your changing her diaper or not feeding her fast enough. I am so in love with this sweet sweet girl!
I am overwhelmed with love for Andy, he has been so patient with me, and a great help since we have been home. I couldnt ask for a better man to start this journey as a new family with.
