stella jolie rohr

Our girl is here! She was born at exactly 7pm...5 hours after I went into labor (with the help of a little pitocin)...yea, I said 5 hours. She was 8lbs 13oz and 19.5 inches long-perfect of course.
Getting her out was a little tough, due to the size of her head and the fact she decided she was coming out looking at everyone (face down is ideal, but not for this girl. Lol)
I know...your thinking 8lbs...almost 9?! Believe it or not, she is my smallest yet!
She is so sweet, at first she hardly cried and then was totally content being held while they cleaned and examined her. Her little personality is already coming out in the fact that she hates being disturbed or when people talk or make noice over a certain decible. It is hilarious how she gets the pouty face going and let's you know exactly how she feels.
She is already eating great-I can't believe it, I had so much trouble with the other two. It's just the keeping her awake and interested part that is getting us right now. That can only get better though.
I'm not sure 5 hours (yes, I pointed it out again) is worth a whole post of a birth story...but we'll see if I find some down time soon. Yea right.
Tim just absolutly LOVES her and keeps hogging her! i hope she stays a snuggler!
the hospital is soooo boring, and i can't wait to get home and post more photos and stories about our stella!
thanks everyone for your thoughts and congrats, we can't wait for you to meet her :)
