We are so excited to announce that baby Lucy was born on the 24th at 8:27 PM. She weighed 6 lbs 7 ounces and was 20 inches long. Both Lucy and Jillaye are doing great! Now onto some pictures and the events of the day.
The day started at with us getting to the hospital at 7:30 AM for Jillaye to get induced. They told us that getting induced takes a while as they slowly crank-up the amount of medicine in Jillaye to make sure everything is going good. We watched a movie, played some games and waiting for the contractions to get to the point where she wanted to the epidural. Around 1 PM she got the epidural and the pains started to go away. Here’s a cute shot of us after the epidural:
Jillaye started pushing around 7:30 PM and did so good! The epidural faded off a little bit and that caused some grief, but she got more eventually and it helped things improve a lot. As Lucy was born the Doctors kept saying how much dark hair she had which really made us excited to meet her.
At 8:27 Lucy made her way into this world, we were so excited to see her.
After other nurses came and checked on her and she was fed we got moved up to the postpartum floor and got into our room. I got to go with the nurse and help give Lucy her first bath and pick out a cute bow for her to wear. At this point it was really late so we didn’t have any visitors until the next day.
After a day and a half in the hospital we got to come home around 1 PM on the 26th. We put Lucy into her car seat and headed home, she did very well on the car ride home.
We’re now getting settled into being at home with a new baby and we love her so very much! We are so grateful to have her in our lives, we are truly blessed to have such a cute little angel in our home.
