baby grace

She's here! She's here! After so much anticipation, Graces birthday finally arrived. As of now she is all of 12 hours old. She is absolutely amazing. She is so calm and she nurses like a pro. We are all in love. She entered this world weighing 7 pounds and 5 ounces (Preston was 8-3) and 19 inches long.

I just have to say, that the C-section was also amazing! It was such a strange experience to wake up in the morning and fix my hair, get ready for the day and have a baby with no labor or anything! I think this will be my new preferred method of childbirth:)  The hardest thing today was getting my spinal block-it took them about 3 tries, but is was still better than hours of labor and pushing and the end result was well worth it! :) 

Dave and I are amazed at how well I feel-It is such a different experience than Prestons birth. (although Prestons pregnancy was much more plesant than this pregnancy-I guess it's a trade off) Deaconess has been such a good experience and all of the staff has been so nice.

I can't decide who Gracie looks like, some people say she looks like me...but I think she looks just like herself. She has more hair than Preston did and it's darker too. It was so fun to have all of my family here to meet her, I'm glad it worked out
