She's Here!!!

Our little Christmas "Rose" arrived last night!

♥ ♥ ♥

Birthday: December 15, 2009
Time: 11:49 p.m.
Weight: 8 pounds 1 ounce
Length: 19 inches

♥ ♥ ♥

Thank you all for your prayers!
I couldn't have hoped and prayed for a better labor and delivery!

The baby and I will be staying here at the hospital until tomorrow, so that they can continue to monitor her, due to the Group-B Strep, but so far she is doing wonderfully!

Deo Gratias!

  3. oh and is it required that you stay longer due to the gbs? i know your propensity to stay as long as possibly so i am really hoping this is by your choice (or else i might just have to consider an at home birth ;)

  43. Congratulations! I had Group B Strep with both my kids, and when my son was born, they didn't have enough time to get me a dose of penicilin. We were in the hospital for five days because of his breathing, but it turned out to be transient and unrelated. I will pray that all goes well with the monitoring of your little one!
