Welcome To The World!!!

Weighing in at 61bs 8 oz at 18" long we welcomed Brooklyn Dawn Squires into the world at 3:45 this morning!!!! For all you people that say you want to have a baby natural you are freaking NUTS!!!!!! I had been having contractions on and off since Friday at 2 in the morning. They were pretty inconsistent but none the less there. On Saturday the 20th after the Strawberry Day's parade, I started having pretty consistent pains. At midnight we rolled into the hospital. They observed me for 1 hour with little change but decided to observe me for another hour. During The second hour the contractions got way closer and way stronger. At 2:45 they decided that I could stay and called the magic epidural guy who of course had gone home and was on call. When they moved me from the observation room to the delivery room I was dialated to a 5. They put in my iv and I dialated to a 7. Finally the guy with the drugs showed up, but it was too late. I had gone from a 7 to a 10 in a matter of minutes. So no drugs. It was the most painful thing EVER. Did I mention that it was PAINFUL? We got a beautiful little girl in the process who is already loved by our entire family. So here are some pictures.
