Just wanted to let everyone know that our little girl, Julianne Helene, arrived on November 2nd at 7:28am. She weighed 8 pounds, measured 21 inches and is so very beautiful!

I will be sharing the birth story soon after I get used to things but here is a tidbit. I went in for my 41 week appointment, already 10 days past due date. I got an ultrasound, my contractions were monitored and I had a fetal monitor. After 45 minutes I was told I needed to go to the hospital because my amniotic fluid was low. It usually is supposed to be between 5 and 10 but mine was reading at 3. 

17 hours later, after being plugged to pitocin, Julianne was born, without pain medications. Here are a few pictures.

    Congratulations, I am so happy for you! She looks adorable-there will be a lot more firsts to come. I knew someone that blogged every day for an entire year about their child’s daily activities-I would say it would be very hard not to record something on a daily basis-they grow up so fast. Enjoy your newborn.
