Little Miss London



She's here! well, she arrived almost three months ago and i am FINALLY blogging about this gorgeous baby of mine. I figure since she made me wait so long, this could wait also.

London was born January 12, 2011 at 12:38 A.M.

Birthing Story:(you can skip if you want to)
I went in on Monday the 10th and they started my induction. At one in the morning my water broke and contractions started. Around 6 in the morning they gave me pitossin and then my contractions REALLY started to get going...and then they just kept going and going and going. I really wasn't making any progress and so finally 24 hours later and only at a 6 the doctor decided I had gone long enough and needed to go to surgery. This was pretty much my worst fear ever and i am sorry to all who were in the room for my nervous breakdown of sorts.
Not even 20 minutes later, London arrived via c-section and was absolutely adorable. Her cheeks were HUGE and she was perfect. She weighed in at 9lbs 15 ounces and 21 inches long.
When the doctors took her temperature, she had a fever and they worried that because i was in labor so long with my water broken that she might have an infection. After i came out of recovery i went into the room, held her for a little bit and then they took her to the nicu. When i arrived the next morning to see her, she was all hooked up and had an IV in her head,(needless to say, I bawled my eyes out at my precious baby all hooked up)
They decided to do a full dose of antibiotics which meant seven days in the hospital. Those were the longest seven days of my life and when she finally arrived home, things felt complete. Since then she has been a perfect baby and is adored by her parents. She is our favorite thing in the world and love every minute of her.

Now for the fun part: Pictures of our Little Lady. ( a little out of order)
