Sweet baby Taylee Grace

                                                             Right before we left for the hospital
                                                              Beautiful fruits of my labor!!!!

Taylee Grace was born April 25th at 2:09pm. She weighed in at 8lbs 3 oz 20 in long. My doctor had tempted me and we set to be induced on Wednesday morning (he was going to be out of town this week and let's face it I was ready to have her) Randomly when we got here I was already in labor, so he just broke my water. It was a huge blessing because I had wanted to just go on my own. I was going to try to go natural like I did with Brielle (which wasn't on purpose). Once I was in labor I remembered how much pain it was and decided I didn't need to be brave for anyone. It was a breeze to get the epidural and the relief was AMAZING!!!!( I feel just as good as I did after I had Brielle too). I started feeling more pain and when they came to check I was ready to go. Clint told them I go fast when I start pushing, so they called the doctor. They told me to stop pushing after 2 contractions and wait for the doctor, you could hear him running down the hall. He got his gloves on and she was here. It was a WONDERFUL experience. Clint said he couldn't believe it because I was talking through the whole thing. She is so precious and looks just like Brielle. She totally fits in our family. The kids came and saw her last night and were in love! Clint says she has a Sampson size appetite. I am so thankful she is here. I love being able to breathe and move!!! Food tastes AMAZING, I told Clint I don't have to worry about heartburn and am LOVING food! It's nice to have an appetite back!  We feel so blessed to have such a beautiful healthy baby!
