OUR CHRISTMAS PRESENT!

On December 19th at 4:28 pm we welcomed a brand new baby girl into our family. She weighed 6 lbs 6 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. We named her Karra Anne Neilson. She is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Since everyone has been asking me how delivery went I will give you a quick over view.
On saturday morning at 7:30 am my water broke and we went to the hospital. When i got there I was not contracting so they started me on pitocin. I started contracting around 11:00 am and got my epidural around 1:30 pm. After the epidural things were great, even before the epidural the conractions were not as bad as I expected them to be. Once I got the epidural i started dilating pretty quickly and I was a 10 and ready to push by 4 pm. I pushed through 3 contractions and she was born around 4:28pm. It was the biggest miracle Scott and I had ever seen let alone participate in. Karra was a beautiful healthy girl that we have been smitten with since she came into our lives.
Karra has been awesome so far. Even thought things can always change right now she is such a good sleeper, eating is still something we are both getting used to, however that will come with time. She has her daddy's nose and ears and a long face like here daddy. She has her mommys eyes, cheeks, and lips at least from what we can tell for now. Things can always change though. I am not going to bore you anymore I will now post some pictures of my beautiful baby girl!
