A Looooooonnnngggg Overdue Introduction!

Well after waiting and waiting and waiting and passing my due date and then waiting and waiting some more our dear Annabella has finally arrived amidst much pomp and circumstance!!

I was scheduled to check into the hospital Monday night for induction Tuesday morning. After contractions all day Monday I was still only 1cm when I got to the hospital. I woke up at 1am Tuesday morning in the hospital, in labor and by 3:56 Anna had arrived with the helpful suck of a vacuum and with the neonatal unit in toe! At the last possible moment she decided she didn't want to be born via induction LOL

Anna turned out to be perfectly healthy and had no problems. It was a crazy whirlwind and I am still left wondering what happened. It was a surreal experience.

Anna was TEN days late!!! She was 7lbs15oz and 19.5inches long. Here are a HEAP of pictures. I am so behind in sorting and posting, but at least I got this out there. Hopefully more to come soon.

She is so cute and you look great, especially after going through all of that, and more I'm sure.
