She is here!

Gabriella Elizabeth arrived at 11:45am this morning. I didn't really have an opportunity to update because things progressed so quickly. At 9:00am the doctor came in and broke my water, I was 3 cm dilated, 9:30am I had my epidural and by 10:00am I was 8 cm dilated. At 10:25am I was a full 10 cm and we decided to wait to push for a little while. At 11:00am I began pushing and 45 minutes later she was here! She weighs 6lbs. 14oz. and is 19.75 inches long. Not that we are partial or anything, but we think she is BEAUTIFUL. She has a head full of blonde hair too, which is super cute! We appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers and can't believe what a wonderful day it has been.
