Meet Lily Anne...

Our beautiful daughter arrived at 7:14pm this evening. After arriving at the hospital at 5am to be induced, I never dilated past 3cm after 12 hours so Dr. Cimino decided to deliver her via C-section.
He came in to check me at 6:36pm and she was born by 7:14pm, it all happened so fast.
Lily weighed 6lbs, 15oz, and was 19.5 in long. She has a head full of wavy brownish blond hair. She has already captured our hearts.
After cleaning her up, mommy got to give her a quick kiss and then she and daddy were whisked away to the nursery for her checkups and a real bath.
Mommy got to finally hold her at about 10pm.
I can't believe that she is ours. She is a perfect blend of both of us. I can't wait to see what her eye color will be, but for now they are blue. She has long feet and fingers, not sure where she got those...
Here are a few pictures of the day & night.

The grandparents are just a little excited, don't you think?

One more update before the BIG day!

I had another doctor's appt Thursday and he said that Lily is ready to go and he will induce me on Tuesday morning! I can't believe that it is finally here. The first half of the pregnancy went really slow and then it sped up, now it seems like it is dragging again. So unless she decides she is ready before then, we will meet our daughter sometime on Tuesday. Until then...
