Baby Addie is here! Finally the long wait is over. On March 17 I woke early in the morning (at 5:00 am) with a bit of pain in my stomach and low back. By 7:00 am I knew I was having contractions, but they were not coming regularly yet so I wasn't sure if it was real or false labor. I called the hospital and my doctor to ask their advice and they told me that I should stay home and wait until they were 2-4 minutes apart.
By 10:30, my contractions were much more painful, but still irregular. Around 10:35, I was talking on the phone with my mom and my water BROKE! I called Ryan and he rushed home from work to take me to the hospital. I was in labor until 4:59, and then finally our sweet little Addison was born! We have a little St. Patrick's Day baby.
Addison is so sweet. She is such a cuddly little girl, and she loves being held. Surprisingly she has strawberry blond hair! She weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces and was 20 inches long. We just love her!
