Yesterday, our little girl surprised us by coming 2 weeks early. Apparently she hadn't gotten the memo that I (Christy) still had a few things to due before her arrival, including finishing work. Even at the most intense part of labour I was still having a hard time believing she was really coming. But she was and she is.
Early Saturday morning (2:30 am) mild contractions started. By 4:30 we called Gramma to come but then things seemed to slow a bit and everyone went back to sleep for a bit. But by 7am I couldn't lay down anymore and by 7:30am it was time to call the midwife. We met her at the hospital at 9. and after what seemed like forever but was really only 4 hour she was on my chest at 1.05 pm with Miro announcing through tears of joy that we had ababy girl.
after a bit of pondering we decided on audrey joan (my mom, whose b-day is nov 14) elizabeth (miro's grandmother) rak. she's 7.5 lbs 20 inches long. it's a bit of an adjustment for all of us but our love for her is already great.
