this precious little girl was born this morning!!!!!
Our friends Jeff and Mel called us at 10:20 last night to let us know Mel's water had broken and they were headed to the hospital. Stephen, Tabatha (another friend from work) and I all headed up to the hospital around 11, planning to stay just a few hours, depending on how quickly Mel was progressing. Well she progressed QUICKLY! In just a few hours she went from 3.5 to 5.5 to 8.5 to "time to push!" Tatelyn Michelle Wood entered the world at 2:27 am, just 4 hours after Mel's water broke! She weighed in at 7 pounds, 9 ounces, and measured 20 inches long. We stayed until she was born, but came home and went to bed right afterwards then went and visited this morning. Tatelyn is just PRECIOUS! Absolutely adorable and perfect. I held her for awhile this morning and it just got me all anxious for Christopher to get here so that I can be holding him. I can't wait! Mel was just 8 weeks further along than -- which means that I really don't have that much longer until I'm the one in the hospital giving birth! Scary but oh so exciting!
Here I am with Tatelyn (and my preggers belly pokin out!)
One other exciting thing happened last night, but it's not nearly as exciting (or pretty) as Baby Tatelyn, so I'm gonna save it for tomorrow's post!
