She is here...

Sorry it took so long, but no internet at the hospital.

I ended up needing pitocin to start labor around 1:30p. Didn't like that at all. Hurt like hell. Got epidural around 4:00p and pushed baby out at 5:44pm. Miss Eleanor Elizabeth weighed 7lbs 12 oz and was 20 inches long.
All and all, perfect in every way. As you can see...






God is good.
