Well we have big news finally!!! After a scheduled induction cancelled and 5 days past my due date, our little princess came into the world all on her own early Friday morning at 3:44 a.m. She was a whopping 8lbs. 7 ounces and 21 inches long!!! I had really wanted to have a natural labor and delivery and made it for 17 hrs. with no meds, but once the experience was not becoming enjoyable any longer, I had to opt for the epidural.
We had a really long 22 hr. labor, but it was worth the little jewel that we got in the end. She is completely healthy and a wonderful baby. She has been so content and laid-back and we just love her to death. She is also so alert and strong, already trying to hold her head up on her own. :)
I must say that I had the best labor coach ever. BJ did everything and more to comfort me and was by my side every step of the way. I couldn't have made it those 17 grueling hrs without him.
We just got home today so we are enjoying this first day home as a family. What a beautiful day it was today and the weather was perfect for bringing home our little daughter.
Thank you all for your support and prayers and please continue to send them our way as we rookie parents learn as we go :) Specifically pray for energy, strength, and continued health for our whole family.
Here are a couple of early pictures that we have of her, but if you go online to www.memorialhermann.org and click the nursery link (Memorial Hermann The Woodlands) you can view her going home photo probably by Monday if not before. The password is Munson.
I'm sure I don't have everyone's email , so please feel free to forward this on.
We love you all and can't wait for you to meet our little one!
Oh and yes, the suspense is over and the secret is out.............Her name is..........................
Hayden Jadie-Elisabeth Munson :) It was a fun secret to keep!!!
