She's Here!!


Well, I'm a few days behind on my announcement, but it's been a little hectic this weekend. I went into labor this past Friday morning at around 4:30 AM, and I went to the hospital at around 2 PM when my contractions got to be 4-5 minutes apart. I was progressing slowly, so they sent me home to go through more of the early labor because they are dealing with a flu epidemic in the hospital and said it would probably be better for me to be home rather than the hospital.

To say I was disappointed would be putting it mildly. I thought maybe they were just trying to get me out of there. But then at 4:30 Saturday morning my water broke. So we went back to the hospital, and I got checked in to stay. A few hours later I had to be put on Pitocin because Alaena wasn't progressing things quickly enough. Turns out she was turned toward my stomach rather than my back making things happen slowly, but fortunately she flipped around, and I went from being 6cm to being 10cm in an hour.

So I present to you Miss Alaena Addison Smith, born February 9, 2008 at 8:49 PM. She weighed 7lbs, 11oz and was 20 3/4" long. And of course I'm partial, but I think she is absolutely gorgeous! What do you think?
