  • Hi Ladies!

    We're home....

    Lyla is a sweet, sweet baby....

    Delivery was perfect- started pitocin at 9:30am, got an epidural.... she broke my water..... I started pushing at 11:20 when I realized I was ready and HAD to push
    3 pushes later.... she was born at 11:37am
    2 tiny stitches- my dr said it was a 'skid mark' bc she came out so quickly!

    My delivery nurse was awesome... right before Lyla came out she told me to reach down and pull her to me-- so I did and it was the neatest experience of my life! I put her on my chest and she immediately turned to nurse!!! amazing! they cleaned her up then gave her back to me and she nursed off and on for 20 minutes.... perfect!

    We are so in love

    Here are some more pics....

  • Kelli, she's just perfect!
    She looks a lot like your boys.
    And your labor experience sounded perfect! That is amazing that she just turned to nurse like that, how cool!

    Now, I see she was 6 lb 15 oz. What was her length?

    Kelli, she's perfect! Congratulations!!!
    You look wonderful after having just given birth. The boys look so grown up and handsome, and I just love their shirts. I can totally see both of them in Layla. What a doll baby. Again, CONGRATS! I'm so happy you finally got your little girl and that the delivery went so smoothly.
