Hailey's Here!

Well, most of you already know this, especially if you're on Facebook. But, to follow up on the "Waiting for Hailey" post, I wanted to document what happened when she arrived.

After getting to 10 cm, Stephani pushed for over 2 hours, and the doctor (finally!) realized little Hailey was face up and wasn't going to be able to maneuver out the natural way. So, they rushed Stephani in for a cesarean (is that the right spelling?) at around 5:00 am.

We all got wake-up phone calls and foggily rushed back to the hospital.

Hailey was born at 5:32 on Saturday, April 30th,
7 lbs, 11 oz, 20 inches long,
and she is stinkin' ADORABLE! Here's a video of when we first met her and Grandma's commentary.

(Yes, that is a Flagler male burping in the background.!! We all thought she would have red hair, so that's why we were having the hair discussion.) :)

It was so special to be there so soon after she entered this world. Stephani was doing good after her surgery, so we got to visit with them as a family of 3 and also watch when Hailey got her first bath.

The next couple of days were filled with LOTS of visits to the hospital and being in awe over our little, perfect niece.

If it's not been obvious, this Aunt T is definitely in love! (And Uncle Matt is pretty darn smitten too.)
