Introducing Callie Ava

We are more than proud to introduce you to Miss Callie Ava Clinkscales!!!!

Born at 12:39PM, 7lbs 9oz., 20 inches long

I thought I would have time to update more throughout the day but everything happened so fast!  My nurse checked me around 12:15 and I was only 5cm dilated.  She walked out of the room and within a minute I was in pain.  We paged the nurse and by the time she made it back to the room I was fully dilated and ready to push.  They paged the nurse and it seemed like I pushed maybe 5 minutes and the next thing I remember was being told "open your eyes and look at your baby girl" as they were laying her in my lap.  I couldn't believe it happened so fast.  I feel beyond blessed!!!!!

Obviously we think she is just perfect.  I think she looks a lot like Cain.  So much so that I started crying earlier and told Brad it almost feels like we are getting to have the time we didn't get to have with Cain.  He had so many wires and machines attached to him that it was hard to have good snuggle time.  

This picture won't mean a lot to many people but since so many heart moms read our blog I just had to share this picture.  I know the heart moms reading this will understand how wonderful it was to see Callie's oxygen sat's at.........


Yes, I did make sure to ask them to check her oxygen sat's right away!!  Now if only they would make that mandatory on all baby screenings!
I'll post more pictures tonight or tomorrow morning.  For now, it's time to snuggle away with my new bundle of joy.
