Let me introduce our bundle of joy...

First off, sorry for taking so long to post about the birth of my sweet baby girl!

Kensington Capri with Mommy (pardon my exhausted look) and Daddy

I have been a little preoccupied with loving on her non-stop!

Our sweet girl, Kensington Capri, was born on March 6th, 2012 at 2:04pm.  She weighed in at 9 lbs 10.1 ozs and was 21.5" long.  She couldn't have been any more perfect from the start!

As far as my labor story goes, I was induced Monday March 5th in the evening since my doctor suspected a large baby (and boy was she right!)

I was put on pitocin to get things going around 7:30 am March 6th and progressed through labor until having her in the early afternoon hours.  I feel very fortunate that I was not in active labor for very long or pushing for very long either.  I did my best at sticking to my birth plan and received a half dose of meds in order to relax me a bit, but nothing else.  I wanted to use the tools I was taught in my Lamaze class in order to give birth, and I think the process was amazing.  Naturally, I would not have been able to get through it all without the amazing help and support of my loving husband as well as my nurse and doctor.

Now that baby girl is almost 2 weeks old (tomorrow!!), we are finally getting into more of a schedule and I swear she was on a 4 hour feeding schedule last night compared to a 3 hour schedule the night before...she amazes her momma every day in some way!

enough of the talking, let me show you why I have not been posting/reading any blogs for a while!
