My sweet baby Hayden McKenna arrived on Wednesday December 16 at 10:09 PM. She weighed 6 pounds 7 ounces and is 19.5 inches long. I had a wonderful labor and delivery and was blessed to have my very good friend Kristen there as my nurse and one of my favorite residents Sarah deliver her. Of course my mom was there too! I really couldn't have asked for anything more. We got to the hospital around 3pm and was contracting every 3 minutes and was pretty uncomfortable. Got an epidural about an hour after we got there. Another of my friends Kristia took great care of us until Kristen arrived. Sarah broke my water and I hung out at 5 cm for a while. When Hayden decided to come though she didn't waste any time. Sarah came in to check on me and I was 8 cm, so she went to brush her teeth so she had nice fresh breath when I delivered. She couldn't even finish brushing her teeth before Hayden decided it was time. I pushed for 2 contractions and out she came. My doctor (Dr. Erickson) didn't even make it in time! Hayden is a wonderful baby and Sydney can't get enough of her. She is being so gentle and loving with her. I am so blessed with my 2 beautiful healthy girls. They are all I have ever dreamed of and so much more.
P.S. Thank you to Nerissa and Bryan for taking care of Sydney for me. To know that she was having a blast at your house helped me so much. I can never really thank you enough for that. Love you lots!!!!
