LUCY HAS ARRIVED!

Sorry for not posting but I've been kinda busy...you know birthing an actual BABY and all! I went into labor on New Years Day (Thursday) in the morning and we finally went to the hospital at 9:00 pm that night. Little Lucy Elizabeth decided not to make her arrival until 4:03 PM on Friday (yes, it took her that long, she took her time), she weighed 7 lbs 3 ounces and was 19 1/4 inches long. I'll post all the details of my birth story tomorrow along with pictures of our perfect, lovely Lucy who is doing so amazing and has completely and utterly stolen our hearts already. Thank you for all the well-wishes! She is so amazing!!!! I just cannot believe she is finally here! I'll update as soon as I can but right now I need to get off of my sore behind for now!

"You’re the lucky one so I’ve been told
Free as the wind blowin down the road
Loved by many, hated by none
I’d say you were lucky cause I know what you’ve done
Not a care in the world not a worry in sight
Everything’s going to be all right
Cause you’re the lucky one"
-Allison Krauss
