Meet Brynn

Thank you all so much for your thoughts, prayers, and congratulatory messages yesterday. We are just beyond happy that our little girl is here and healthy.

What I am feeling right now is indescribable. I feel like I could burst with joy.

I will certainly be posting a birth story as soon as I get a chance, but I will tell you that I'm still in shock over just how fast it went yesterday. I jumped from 6 to 10cm very quickly and probably could have had her after just 3-4hours of Pitocin. But it was a busy day in L&D for my doctor, so I just hung out while she did an emergency c-section and then delivered the baby in the room next to me. This actually ended up helping me because Brynn had even more time to move further down!

And 5 minutes of pushing with no tearing? I mean, can it get any better than that!?!

When they told me I was doing great and I was almost done... I didn't believe them. But what do you know... they were actually telling the truth =)

Our little 9lb 3oz peanut was born at 12:18pm on Monday, May 24, 2010.

And she is absolutely perfect.

Brynn did have to spend a 4 hour stint in the NICU yesterday due to her inability to regulate her blood sugar levels. It was so hard watching her being wheeled off so soon after having her, but she seems to be doing much better now, thankfully!

Carter got a chance to meet his sister when she got back from the NICU and he loved her right away! He gave her hugs and kisses, then he grabbed her hand and poked her eye. And so it begins... ;)

As for me, I'm feeling really great. Just tired. But that's to be expected. I just can't stop staring at my beautiful baby girl. She looks just like her big brother.

I'm so in love.

Oh my gosh, Jenni. I'm trying to type through tears so excuse me if I make any typos! I was crying and then when I got to the part where Carter grabbed her hand and poked her eye, I laughed out loud! Oh, how very similar are our situations.

How difficult that must have been to see Brynn be taken away in the beginning. Believe me, I've been there, mama! It is scary. But I'm so glad it sounds like everything else went so well. 5 minutes of pushing and NO tearing? I think you were meant to have babies =)

Oh, and p.s. now I want a girl. I'm gonna tell my hubby that it's your fault I have baby fever at 3 weeks post partum =)
