Welcome Home Addie!

Posted by Brandon |


After six days in the hospital - two inducing, one laboring and three post-partum - we finally returned home today with our little peanut.

Our little Adelaide May was delivered on Friday at 3:50 AM after nearly 22 hours of labor. Momma had to have a C-section after going through just about everything that having a baby has to offer and the picture above is me in the ICU with Addie minutes after her delivery. Don't worry, she was fine, all C-section babies have to go to the ICU for a little while.

It was probably the most difficult, painful, tiring, exciting, happiest, optimistic couple of days of my life - and I didn't even do the hard work. This is going to be tough, without a doubt, but it is already so much fun and so rewarding, I can't even describe. I couldn't be happier with her and mom and our family. This is about as awesome as it gets.

Congrats! Post her stats. She looks long!

Brandon said...

Oh yeah, I forgot. 6 pounds 11 ounces. 20 1/4 inches long. She has some seriously long legs, just like Daddy.

Also, she was born to the song "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder. It just happened to be on the radio that was playing in the OR.
