We are so excited that Hailey Beth has finally arrived to join our family. She was born on Feb 20th, 2009 at 2:41pm. Labor and delivery went quickly--compared to Aubrey's birth; we went to the hospital at 8:00 am, had pitocin (inducing medication) started at around 9:30 am, and Ashley's water was broken at 11:30am. From there it was just waiting. We are glad that they did not have to do an emergency C-Section; for a few minutes, Hailey's heartrate went down a lot and they thought Ashley might need a C-Section, but thankfully Hailey's heartbeat returned to normal. Now that she is here, we are glad she and mom are doing well--at least considering neither is getting much sleep. Hailey weighed in at 8 pounds 12.7 ounces and is 20 and 3/4 inches long! She was big in every measurement they did--head size, weight, and length. Thanks to everyone for all your support!
