after pushing a baby out!!
Nora compared to her daddy's hands...tiny girl!!
5 lbs. 12 oz...just a tiny little squirt! she was not thrilled!
The sisters meet!
Well, folks, the moment we've all been waiting for....
Nora Jean C. gracefully entered the world at
3:55 a.m. August 26, 2007, weighing in at a demure
5 pounds, 12.6 ounces, 20 inches long. She is so
tiny and long but was very alert and she has the
cutest little kitty cat cry!! Way to go, Beck and Scott!
Becky had been in labor from 1 a.m. Saturday or so.
Went into the hospital at around 3 or 4 a.m. and was
dilated to 3.5 cm. They sent her home, she proceeded
with her day as planned, napping, contracting and
walking when she could and should, even attending
her sis-in-law's surprise birthday party. I got the call
at nearly 1 a.m. on Sun. morning that they were
heading back into the hospital and this time, B.
didn't sound so perky...Mom, Molly and I got the call
to head in. At 2:30 a.m. or so, Beck got her epidural
(You go girl!!) and dilated all the way to 10 in this time.
Funny thing is, her real ob/gyn was out of town so
the on call doc, a nice dude, said she could push when
she was ready. Four (or less) good, hearty pushes later, and out
she slithered...in all her tiny, gooey glory! She is nursing well
and everything is where it needs to be. She is adorable!! She also
has the tiniest butt on earth, and we just aren't sure where she
got this butt of hers!
My mom and Molly got to stay in the room for the delivery,
which was awesome, even though B. was told she could only
have 2 in with her.
I guess the Labor and Delivery dept. is a little more relaxed
in the wee hours of the morning. It was so cool that Molly
got to be in the room to welcome her new "baby" cousin.
She will always be able to tell Nora that she is older than her
but knowing my sister's kids, Nora will be bossing Molly
around and Molly will let her (and then proceed to write "Nora
is mean" in her notebook. funny story accompanies this, ask
me or B. sometime)
O yeah, Pipes got there right before I left for the "first meeting".
Mom, Molly and I left right before 6 a.m. Nora was getting
cleaned up by the nurse and she let out a few strong,
not so quiet cries!! She does NOT like to have her feet
touched or to have her pic taken!! We are so glad you
made it safely, little peanut! Now to fatten you up a bit!!
Thanks to any and all of you that prayed for my sister
and her family!! Her delivery was incredible and I am
blessed to have been a leg holder!! doesn't get much
better than that! I Love You, Becky!! Good work!
I have more pix to post but I'm zonked, Molly needs
to eat and I may try to sleep!! har har. We will be
