We are settling into life with a baby. Today has been our first day without any's been just the three of us. Adiella has been a very easy going baby and likes to sleep so so far the transition has gone very smoothly. We still look at her and say to each other, "we have a baby", it still seems very surreal...except for at 3 a.m. :)
We took Adie to the Dr. on Thursday and she was already back up to her birth weight, which means she has been gaining over and ounce a day! The Dr. said that if she chooses to sleep through the night we can let her since she has made such good gains with her weight. She's been waking up about every three hours but last night she slept from 9:30pm to 3:30 am!! What a blessing! I just hope she keeps that up.
Yesterday her daddy got to dress her....see the picture for the result of this... :)

Adiella has finally arrived!!!

We headed to the hospital in the morning of October 7 to be induced. I was already having some contractions on my own and the pitocin went right to work. The nurse said all the other nurses were jealous at how well the contractions were tracking...Thanks for all your prayers!!!
At 7pm the nurses reported it was time to push. We were thrilled after waiting all this time and were excited to be only moments away from having Adiella in our arms and out of my belly! :) We were thrilled that moments turned out to be only 20 minutes. Thanks again for all your prayers. Everything went smoothly and we now have our daughter in our arms. She weighed in at 9lbs. 4 oz. and measured 21 inches long. She passed all the tests and is as healthy as can be! PRAISE THE LORD!
We came home from the hospital last night and are settling into life at home. Adiella loves to sleep, even more than she likes to eat so this is our biggest battle right now...waking her up enough to eat. She's catching on and hasn't lost her chubby cheeks so we're confident she will continue to do well.

Yes, we are still waiting...

Our little gal is just taking her sweet time. We're scheduled to go in tomorrow (Tuesday) morning to be induced. We are still hopeful that she will come on her own sometime today...
