She is Here!

Ella Claire Dorrough

Born at 3:57pm
7lbs 5oz

 She is so sweet and content. She loves to snuggle. She is very alert. She moves constantly. She sleeps with her mouth open like her Daddy and has hands like her Mommy. 

We are so in love! Being a mother is wonderful. Can't believe I waited so long! A true miracle. The purest form of love. My heart is forever changed. 

J is a natural. He is walking around glowing with a grin from ear to ear. Seeing him with her melts my heart. 

(if you don't want to hear about the labor please skip this next part, don't worry there are no "details" :)
Labor was good. Not at all the horror stories that I've heard. We went in at 6am and I was 2cm dilated and 70% effaced. Started iv at 8am and broke water at 8:30am. By 3pm we were ready to start pushing. She made her big debut at 3:57. It was not bad at all. Let my story be the one that you remind yourself of if you are nervous about giving birth. Don't get me wrong there are moments of hard work but it is MORE than worth it!

Please enjoy her "arrival" video!
