She's Here!

Our daughter was born at 7:17 pm, May 27th after only 2 1/2 hours of labor and 10 minutes of pushing! She weighed in at 6lbs 5 ounces and measured at 19 inches long....another little peanut! It was all-natural, baby! No induction, no pitocin, no pain relievers, no episiotomy! All prayers have been answered by the Lord except for her nursing ability. She's not a very good nurser, though she was a champ just after she was born. She's getting better, though and I continue in prayer that she improves. I pray that when my milk comes in, she'll be a great nurser. I'm also in prayer about her jaundice. Right now, it's not bad at all, but I learned with Bubby how quickly that can change, especially with her not being a good nurser.

The picture above was taken yesterday. That's me and my son and daughter. Poor hubby's not in the picture because he wasn't at the hospital at that time. He was there earlier, but I sent him home to get some rest and some food.

Oh, I'm so glad for you, and glad that you didn't have to be induced, and that it was all natural.

Way to go! Now you have two wonderful, precious children - blessings from the Lord. :-)

Congrats! And I have to agree with the comment about how you all looked great in your pic. I only have pics of my arms holding the baby in the hospital because I always look so terrible after delivery. You are all lovely! Blessings to you!!! :)

Congratulations on the safe birth of your daughter! What a blessing. I think I remember you from biblical womanhood quite some time ago. ;-)
