Caroline Jane Arrives!

 We are very excited to announce the arrival of our daughter, Caroline! She was born at 1:11pm on April 27, 2011 weighing 7lb 14oz and measuring 20.5 inches long. Here are some photos of her arrival!

We got to the hospital at 7:30 Wednesday morning for a scheduled induction. After a bit of excitement that included a ridiculously low blood pressure and a fainting episode, I was hooked up to the pitosin around 9:30 or 10:00. I went ahead and requested my epidural shortly after labor started, and it was a much better experience than the last time! Mom and Dad brought Matthew up to the hospital for a little bit while we waited for labor to progress. Then around 12:45 I started feeling some pressure, and sure enough it was time to push! Mom and Dad went to the waiting room at the hospital instead of heading back to the apartment as we originally had planned. 20 minutes later, Caroline was born!
