OK, so these pics are a little off, but you'll get the idea. This is Gracie after her first bath, and we are sunbathing to help with the yellow condition.

Ryan helped for the first time with Gracie by feeding her a bottle. He really doesn't want anything to do with her. Right now, she is fine if she stays away from him.

Yes, Betsy, we do headband bows for right now. There isn't enough hair to clip, and I don't have many little ones. It works for us, don't you think?

This is the day we had Gracie. Not very big I know, but man do I feel better now! We went in just because of a few contractions, but my doctor did not want me to labor at home since Gracie was breech, so she essentially had me come in and induce labor. I rather enjoyed that, since there was no rush, my pain was under control the whole time, and I found it just to be much calmer all around.

This is after we got back to the room and Gracie had had her bath. Ryan didn't care about Gracie, he just wanted to be next to me.

....And take over my bed.

Here we leave the hospital. I am so sad! I truly enjoyed the peace and quiet of staying there. Yes, the nurses and staff came in alot, but it's nothing like having a 2 yr old around! Plus, they had the best jacuzzi tubs ever. I think I took 15 baths in the 2 days I was there. It was blissfully wonderful!

Of course, as soon as we got home, we had to take another picture. I still can't believe she is here. I love her so much, and am enjoying getting to know her. She is already so different from Ryan. It remains to be seen if that is a good thing or a bad thing!

Welcome Gracie!

I will post later the birth story, but here is our beautiful girl for all to see! She is 7lbs 2oz, 18.5 inches long, and wonderful.
