Grace Taylor Maureen made her debut on September 15th at 1:19 pm. She weighed in at 7.2 pounds, and is 19 inches long. She is absolutely perfect and we couldn't be happier! Monday night I was trying to get to sleep and I felt the contractions around 2:00 am, I waited to wake up T.J. to make sure it was the real thing. I woke up T.J. around 3:15, and we left for the hospital at 3:45. Once we got to the hospital they had me walk the halls for 30 minutes and then checked me to confirm that labor was progressing. After we were admitted to a room around 7:30 am. I got the epidural and we waited. I started pushing around 12:45 and she was born at 1:19 pm. All in all it was a wonderful labor experience, and well worth the prize!

Here are some nursery pics, and little projects I have done to keep busy. I included a picture of the finished bedding I made. I really surprised myself and I am glad I chose to make it. Also, I had a lot of fun making the little onesies. My boss gave me about 15 plain white onesies, so it was really fun decorating them. And how cute is the tutu?! I learned how to make it from http://www.make-your-own-baby-stuff.com/baby-tutus.html.

So I had my first checkup on Wednesday to see my, or I should said the baby's progression. I must say that I was going into thinking that I would show no sign of progress and that I would surely be pregnant for another 2 weeks, but to my surprise I am "well on my way." I can hardly believe that the time is actually coming to an end, and I will meet my little girl any day now. Last night T.J. and I went on a 3 mile walk to see if we could help speed things along. Today I am getting a pre-labor pedicure with my boss and tonight we shall try another "private " method of natural induction. ;) Last but not least, tonight is a full moon, and doctor says it's not a myth that more babies are born on nights like tonight. We shall see...
