It's a.....

Girl!!!!!
Maple Baby, (her bloggy name is a reference to made in Canada with U.S. parts) was born Tuesday 5/25/2010 at 2:03 p.m. and weighed in at 6lbs 15oz and 20 inches. The labor was induced at 9:00 am with pitocin, the doctor broke my water at 12:40 pm in the afternoon. At that point I was only 4 cm and 50% effaced and then labor ramped up to ready to push fully dilated by 2 pm with nurses calling doctor stat and paging for a "baby catcher". I had to wait holding through 2 painful contractions but after 4 pushes about 6 minutes we met our beautiful girl. She is a calm easy going baby definitely full of Grace, hooray for Tuesday! I delivered all 3 kids naturally and am really happy with all 3 birthing outcomes!!! Recovery is going great.

Sadly our computer decided to conk out so this picture is from my brother's iphone. I was able to use the lap top to send this out for anyone waiting to share our news! Hopefully we'll get a new system up and running soon. In the meantime I am adjusting to the balance of caring for 3 kids while being "Dairy Queen". I look forward to catching up with blogging friends when things settle down.

Congratulations!! So glad everything went well for both of you. She's beautiful. I had been wondering what was "coming down" around your place.

Blessings!
