Leah Rose is here!

Leah was born Wednesday, Sept. 16th at 10:29pm, weighing 9 lbs. 1 oz. and 20.5 inches long with a full head of hair.

As most of you know, I was induced due to being 10 days late. Pitocin was started at 10:30a. Labor began progressing, but very slowly, so I thought it would be a good time to browse the web and send a few emails thanks to the free wi-fi at the hospital.

I ordered the epidural at 5 cm and was comfortable by 6:00p. The second half progressed much quicker. At 9:55p I felt a lot of pressure, and then my water broke. I was checked and was 9.5 cm. I was instructed to push at 10:09p and at 10:29p Leah was born. Only 20 minutes of pushing!! I was thrilled that the whole process only took 12 hours, compared to the 30 hours it took for Molly. And we were shocked at how big she was too since Molly was just under 8 lbs.

G'Mom, Grampa, Grams, Pop, and Aunt EA were all waiting to meet Leah and hear her name. We picked the name Leah simply because we liked it and it met all our criteria, and Rose was my great-grandmother's name.

You can see pictures from her birth day here and stay tuned for more!
