Lilly Blair Ford was born on March 5, 2011, at 5:41 am in room 211 of the Wiser Hospital for Women and Infants at UMMC. She weighed 6 lbs, 8 oz and measured 20 inches long. She is the most precious baby, and her daddy and I love her to pieces. Here's the story of how she arrived..
Home from PF Changs - 38 weeks pregnant, and all of our ridiculousness worked! I woke up the next morning in labor!
We got to the hospital, and they put me on a monitor and checked me. I was having contractions every four minutes and dilated 4cm. My doctor decided that my blood pressure was a little high (her's would have been too if she was in labor and had just ridden with Michael to the hospital!) so they decided it was time to ROLL!! I was THRILLED! We called all of our family and started a twelve hour journey that I will NEVER forget!
We are missing my dad in the picture. He had gone to take a nap because he was fishing in a tournament at Lake Bruin that day and had been up since the CRACK OF DAWN. I kept telling my step-mom not to call him because I didn't think this was REALLY it - I was in TOTAL denial that I was really in labor I guess! By the way, he had found a sweet spot and caught three fish before he got the call :)
My crazy sisters came to visit...
I started pushing at 5:30 am, and our precious Lilly Blair made her entrance at 5:41! I was SO exhausted and SO tired of hurting that I decided it was time to get serious and get this baby out of me! Michael still talks about how fast it all happened. He handled it all like a pro!
I will do a post of all her visitors soon, but I have a hungry baby calling me!
