Welcome Lorelei

We welcomed Lorelei Jean Hayes into the world October 8th at 0214. She weighed 8 lbs 14 oz and was 20 inches long.
She was such an easy delivery. We had just gotten the changing table, opened it, and were laying the parts all across the bed when I told Anton that he better call his father to get Hunter. My water had broke and the contractions were coming on strong. Poor lil Hunter did not know what was wrong with mommie, but he was sure excited to see his Papa.
When we arrived at the hospital they confirmed that my water broke and said I was at 3 cm. They figured since I was only at 3 cm that I had a long road ahead of me. When I started getting nauseous I told the nurse to check me and I was already at a ten. Woohoo! Time to push. Pushing was fairly simple with Lorelei. (Don't get me wrong it still was painful just a lot less painful than my delivery experience with Hunter) In fact Anton and the on call Doctor hit it off so well they were talking like a couple of buddies at break and the nurse kept having to remind them that I needed to push. The doctor did ask me if the baby felt larger than my first and I said definitely. He said I figured cause she looks like she is going to be a big one. Popped lil miss Lorelei out and boy were we right. She was quite a bit bigger than her brother was. The nurse plopped her on my chest after Anton cut the cord and she started nursing right away with out any help. For the little girl being a much more difficult pregnancy, she was a way easier delivery. We are all so excited to have her as a part of our family!

Just in case I have forgotten to tell you, you are the best daughter a person could ever have.
