She's Here!

My niece was finally born on Friday January 23rd at 6:18pm. My sister is a champ. She had a textbook pregnancy and delivery. She called me at 2am in the morning on Friday. She had been having contractions every 5 minutes and they were going to the hospital. My mom and I met her there and she was having contractions every 6-7 minutes in triage. Well about an hour later the nurse comes to check her and says she's about 2cm which she was 4cm before she got there. The lady was an idiot. She then gave us this huge speech about how this isn't labor and my sister should be in more pain and she needed to go home. Whatever. She was WRONG, very wrong. So we all went home and slept. She called me around noon saying they were still strong and consistent. She headed up the doctor's office and they checked her and she was 5cm and the doctor said she would break her water and send her into full on labor. We all met at the hospital and they broke her water. She contracted on her own for 3 hours and did an amazing job! They gave her an epidural but she was already 9cm! An hour later she was ready to push. She pushed for 30 minutes and out Kennedy came! She is so cute! She looks just like my BIL it's scary. She's 7lbs 7oz & 20in long. She latched right away and has been awesome at breastfeeding although my sister's milk hasn't come in yet. I can't wait to have another tiny one! So precious and sweet.

Here's a couple pictures of her! Oh and her name is Kennedy Faye!

Happy after getting an epidural!
Tiny button!
Proud Papa!
