MC's Birth Day

MC was born on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 after about 19 hours of labor -- including 3.5 hours of pushing. She had a little trouble breathing at first, but she quickly recovered and didn't require any intervention.

I was unmedicated throughout the entire labor and delivery - so to say I was happy to see her on the outside was a vast understatement.

After spending some kangaroo time with me and an initial breastfeeding session, she got a sponge bath and a hair wash for her little blonde baby mullet.

Once they moved us to the postpartum room, we started notifying people that she was here. And I finally got a snack; I hadn't had anything to eat in 24 hours so I was starving!

BD changed her first dirty diaper; in fact, he changed all of her diapers in the hospital. He went from never having changed a diaper to being an old pro in about 24 hours.

48 hours after her birth we were discharged from the hospital and took her home.
