11 Days old and lovin' it!

I'm sure you all figured out that Addison has come into the world by now. I was induced on the 28th and I have to say that it was a good experience. I know there are a lot of people out there who have negative feelings towards being induced or have had bad experiences but I have to say that mine wasn't bad at all. I went in at 7:30am and they started the pitocin drip at 9:00 and the doc came in at 10:00 to break my water...which hurts really bad by the way, I recommend getting an epidural before he does that. I was dialated at a 6 after that and then decided to get the epidural since the contractions started to be quite painful. I then had to wait. I took a lot of naps, as I waited until I could start pushing, it was quite nice. Around 3pm I was dilated at a 10 and fully effaced but they wanted to me to labor down so I wouldn't have to push as long. By 5 I was ready to start pushing and 2 hours later at 7:12pm little Addison was born. It is amazing how quickly you forget about all the pressure from pushing and how hard you had been working when they place your little girl on your belly and you finally see her. She is the most beautiful little baby and I am not just saying that because I am the proud mama...take a look for yourself
The picture of the mom is never supposed to look good, right? Proud (and sleepy) Papa

First Grandchild for Grandma & Grandpa Leonard

Addison is Grandchild number 10 but Grandma & Grandpa Barnes are just as proud!

All in all things are going great for us.

Little Addison is such a good baby and we couldn't be happier.
