On Wednesday, January 14th at 12:44 pm, we welcomed our second daughter into our family. Bailey weighed 8 lbs. 1 oz. and was 21 1/2 inches long. My labor was pretty quick and painless for the most part. We went into the hospital at 6:30 to be induced, pitocin was started about 7:30, water broken at 9:00, and by 12:44, Bailey had entered our world! I progressed so fast, it almost seemed too easy! We are so thankful that God gave us an uneventful labor and delivery and that Bailey has been perfect and healthy. Avery loved getting to be the first one to see and hold her little sister. She has kissed her, rubbed noses with her, and touched and smoothed her cheek every chance she gets. Thankfully she has already gotten use to Bailey's crying because at first it really upset her and she didn't understand why Bailey was sad. As much as we talked about things and tried to prepare her, I guess she just needed to experience it! We came home on Friday at lunch time and have enjoyed holding Bailey as much as possible since then. Nona is here to help out with everything until the end of next week, then Daddy will get to take a week off of work and be here with us the second week. Yay for help!! Thanks to everyone who prayed for us, called, visited, gave gifts, and thought of us during this most exciting time!
