Hattie Jo Royce 11-4-09

She's here!! We are so excited our little girl made it safe. It was fast but intense for me. No meds for me this time. I was trying to be so tough, and at the end I was screaming like a crazy lady. I was only in "hard labor" for about 30 min. thank goodness! She weighed 7lbs. 6oz. and 20 3/4 inches long. She had the cord wrapped around her neck twice tight, so Dr. Klomp had to do his magic. I on the otherhand was wondering why this baby was stuck in that spot for so long. She reminds us of Brik, Berkley & Oakley. What a blessing to have her here in our lives!

Ready to head home!!
The kids weren't allowed to come to the hospital because of the H1N1 flu. So they waited patiently at home to see their new sister.
