Hannah waited just in time for the family to see the birth of her new baby. She went to the hospital at 5:30 am as we were flying out of Orlando. We landed and she was dilated to a 4+ and we drove straight from the airport to see her. A few hours later she had quickly progressed to an 8+ and two hours after that had reached the full 10 centimeters. She then pushed for two hours (ouch!) to get her little baby into this world. Eden came out facing the wrong way - and the doctor was surprised Hannah had pushed her out with no other help. She did a great job!
Eden was a big baby with tons of hair - weighing 8 lbs 2 oz and measuring 21 1/2 inches long (counting the rather large misshapen "horn" on her head). Here are some pictures of Eden.
