Anna Joy 10-8-2009

Welcome to the world Anna! We have had quite a time lately. Anna was born on Thursday last week with much strife and illness on my part. I ended up in the hospital for 8 days with my blood pressure doing really wacky things. It is still not quite stabilized but we are working on it. She was almost an emergency C-section on Wed night but my bp finally came down and we were able to wait until Thursday morning for her birth (she was actually due Nov 2nd). She is absolutely precious. We did an amnio on Wed morning to check her lung status. All was good. She weighed in at 6 lbs 10 oz and 18.5 in long. She is too tiny for 0-3 month clothing so my sister-in-laws mom did some emergency clothes shopping for us :) All the kids are so excited about baby Anna. Eli and Ru can't get enough of her and try to kiss and touch her all the time. Can't stay at computer for too long so I will post pics and update more later.
