Makenna Grace
born 6/18/09 at 7:57 pm
8lbs 14oz
22" long

So sorry it took so long. I just did noy have one spare minute to update you. Makenna has been very needy of her mother and Ive been happy to give her every single minute.

In short, 8 hours after my water was broken, walking every minute allowed, doing lunges, squats and hula hoop motions,
i had not progressed at all. So, i went ahead and started pit. I also got the epi. In the end, 14 minutes of pushing and she was out.

BF is being a challenge, but im not giving up. More details on birth story later. In the meantime, here is a couple of pics.

right after she was born and they laid her on my chest...


A picture from today...
