Cairo is Here
She is finally here. She was born on September 12th. Here is what happened. We went in at 1:00 to be induced. We started Pit at about 1:30 and then increased the drug until my contractions were getting more intense. My girly friend (lifesaver) Hillary just happened to be working that day and took me on as her patient around 3:00. The doctor came and broke my water around 5 ish and then things started happening. I was trying to be tough and endure through the contractions but around 7:00 Dr. Chi saved me and gave me my epidural. I was glad to have a break and get some rest while Brandon was able to go and grab some dinner. By the time Brandon got back I was almost ready so we called the Dr. and by 8:54 she three contractions and 9 pushes later (total of about 15-20 minutes she was here. She was 7 lbs. 6 ounces and 20 inches long. Brandon and I were just cracking up at how much she looks and sounds like Sydney. Here are just a bunch of random pictures of the festivities of the last few days. A big shout out to Hillary for making the event such a fun, easy going for the most part, and memorable day, She deffinately took good care of us and baby Cairo (she got to give her her first bath) Thanks a bunch forever and ever. Thanks to Jay, the Shipleys and the Blanchards for keeping me company during the hospital stay. We are home now and doing well.
