Lovely Lily

She's HERE!!! Lily Marie was born on Monday, May 18th 2009 at 6:44 pm. 7lb 9 oz. 18.5 in

(and has already had her first photo shoot by Andrea T...last two photos below)


Yesterday, during my Dr requested afternoon nap, I heard a pop...and knew my water had broken...3 1/2 hours later, Lily was born. She's perfect. She came out so fast, that she wasn't even squished a bit. Mia's Nana & Pawpaw picked Mia up from Terra Luz after school and whisked her away to Dripping Springs for a fun sleep over. A little after Lily was born, we called Mia to let her know that she was now an official Big Sister. Her reply:

'I love you with my outside voice' :)

Daryl and I had an easy night as far as Lily was concerned. She nursed well and slept even better. What didn't work out in our favor where the sweet well-meaning nurses...baby nurse check in, mama nurse check in, vitals for baby, vitals for mama, labs for mama, has mama pee'd twice yet, has baby eaten again, blood pressure check for mama, has Lily pee'd yet, Motrin for mama, need to check baby's color (healthy and pink?), vitals for mama, vitals for baby...and when we were able to get some time to sleep, Daryl snored....and I didn't have my ear plugs!

So, we're well on our way to be checked out by 7pm tonight...got ok from mama Dr and baby Dr...just need it to be a full 24 hrs since her birth. We just wanna be home, in our own bed with our new baby. Mia comes home tomorrow, and we want to be well rested for her :)


these two shots were taken by Daryl via his Blackberry

Congratulations. Lily is perfect and I am so glad she is finally here. We tried to get out of the hospital at 24 hours with our second, but he was a little jaundice and they made us stay. It is so much better to be at home especially the second time around when you are mor confident.
