My Birth Day

I'm finally here!! I arrived on Saturday, February 24th at 2:33 pm after 16 hours of induced labor. My mommy had a prenatal appt. on Friday and it was decided that labor needed to be induced since my amniotic fluid was too low! Mommy started on Cervidil (to get the cervix softened) at 9:30 pm on Friday and Pitocin at 10:30 am on Saturday. Mommy and Daddy prepared for my birth by going to natural childbirth classes which helped mommy learn to relax and use deep breathing for pain management and it taught daddy to coach mommy through the birthing experience. They did great! The room was filled with family to greet me for my grand arrival. The aunties took great pictures and video so that mommy and daddy will always remember my first birth day and someday I can watch my arrival into the world!

I am so lucky to have such a wonderful family! All of my grandparents, aunties and uncles are already spoiling me with lots of love. My daddy loves wearing me and I'm never not being held by someone. My mommy and I are trying to figure out this breast feeding enigma and everyday is an adventure as we learn more and more about each other. I already have mommy and daddy wrapped around my tiny finger! It was definitely love at first sight!!
