First let me just say I have no idea how you ladies can push a baby's head through the birth canal. I'm still literally in awe of what I saw this morning.
Lacey was a champion. She pushed for 2.5 hours before the doc came in and performed an episiotomy so our little girl's head could push on through to the other side.
Naturally, she began life with a head of curly hair, and it is absolutely darling to see on an infant. She's got my hands because they're HUGE and Lacey's little chin (we both think she looks more like dad). She's only 90 minutes old, but singing calms her, and she really likes to lay next to her mom.
8 lbs. 7 oz.
20.5 inches long
Born at 4:12 a.m. almost 48 hours after Lacey's contractions began.
We're all exhausted.
