Lucy is a week old today (or yesterday, rather)! Sorry this has taken me so long to post...we haven't been home a week yet and my mom has been here with me until today.

I went into labor Sunday morning (4/25) and after 4 days of start/stop labor, Cervadil, Pitocin, and a crappy epidural, Lucy was delivered via c-section on Wednesday (4/28)...it was the best thing ever to hear her sweet and very loud cry after such a long few days. DH was amazing the entire time.

She weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces, was 21 inches long, and has a head full of dark hair. She looks exactly like DH.

She's beautiful :) And so sweet. She's nursing good except for some latch problems that are making my nipples crack and bleed.

I'm working on a long version of my birth story, but she's asleep now, so I'm going to take advantage of it!!

Congratulations on your gorgeous little girl- and for making it through what must have been some very stressful days before her birth. You are doing an awesome job, and good on you for choosing sleep instead of long birth story- you will have more then enough time for that, and sleep is precious, as you well know:)

I can't wait to see more pictures of Lucy, and hope you are having a nice transition to mommyhood!
