Ever tried to get a 1 month old, 2 month old and a 2.5 year old to all cooperate at the same time? Well, we tried and got 1 good shot!

Well, the little lady came exactly a week late on St. Patrick's day. She is our little good luck charm. She was a whopping 8 lbs and 19 3/4 inches long. We could not be more in love with her.
Birth Story -
Michael and I went to the hospital around 11:45 PM on March 16th for me to be induced. I was already having contractions, so the low dose of pitocin kicked everything into high gear. By 6 AM I was having contractions every 1.5 - 2 minutes. At this time I got my epidural and everything slowed down a little bit.
All day I was progressing at a normal rate. At about 2 PM, everything just kinda stopped. It actually started regressing. At about 4:00, my Dr. came in and said that a C-section was the best option...and 34 minutes later the 8 lb little lady entered the world! I remember my doctor yelling "holy crap" when they yelled out her weight. She had been measuring a 6.5 - 7 lb baby. No wonder she didn't want to come out!
Welcome to the world Adriana Marie Booker. Michael and I are so happy and our hearts are overcome with joy and unconditional love. Thank you everyone for visiting, calling, leaving notes and sending cards during this time. We appreciate the love and support from all of our friends and family.
Here are some photos of the first week of her life...

Nearing the end of pregnancy! I have enjoyed this experience, but let me tell you, I am ready to meet this little person and not be pregnant anymore. She is past due, fully cooked, ready to enter the world. Meanwhile, I have been working, cleaning, shopping…enjoying my last days before I am responsible for another life. I am very thankful for this extra time to spend with my husband and myself.
Everything is ready, the house is clean, the clothes are clean, the bags are packed. Just missing little baby A…
Here are some nursery photos for your viewing pleasure. Next post should be debuting this gal to the world. St. Patty's day good luck charm? We shall see.
