Welcome To The World!

I hurried at work yesterday and got finished around 1:00 p.m., went home, changed, grabbed some snacks and headed down to the hospital. Kwiddens had gone into real labor around 1:00 a.m., and was at the hospital and all hooked up by 4:00 a.m., when she called me. Unfortunately, there was no way I could take the day off, since my boss is on vacation and wouldn't be able to cover me (hence the rushing at work), but I got there around 2:30 p.m. so I hadn't missed much. At that point she was at about an 8 and she stayed there for a few hours, all the while having good contractions. She was ready to start pushing around 5:15 p.m. and went for an hour before she was a new mommy.

Here is the very first picture of Nyah:

She was born on June 14, 2010 at 6:15 p.m. and was 8 lb. 3 oz., 21 inches long, and had the most ginormous feet I've ever seen on a baby.

She has her mommy's nose and dark hair.

Here's Kwiddens holding her, all swaddled up like a cute little bundle:

Having a baby doesn't make you look super pretty so I didn't post a picture of Kwiddens, but I'm sure I'll get some cute ones of her and Nyah later on when she's had a chance to shower and do a little hair and make-up!

Thanks! It's a really cool feeling, being an auntie. I mean, I'm an aunt many times over on Scott's side, but that doesn't really count.

But yeah, she is so precious, and oh boy did she have a strong set of lungs! We heard her screaming all the way down the hallway and through two sets of doors!
