Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day is my new favorite holiday! Isabella Grace Beynon was born at 9:48 A.M. on September 1, 2008. I went in to labor at 3:30 in the morning. By 6:30 my contractions were only 3 minutes apart, so we headed to the hospital. The next few hours were pretty painful as my contractions got closer and we waited for the doctor to get to the hospital. By 9:15, we were headed to the operating room and by 9:30 I had my spinal. Sweet Relief! My mom and Jay were there to witness her birth - it was one of the two most precious moments of my life. They held her up so I could see her and said, "It's a girl." My response was "THANK GOD!" She was perfect! She weighed 7 pounds 10.6 ounces and is 20 1/2 inches long.

She is absolutely beautiful. She looks a lot like Alex as a baby, but has her own dainty girly looks too. She has been an angel. She even slept through the night last night. I had to wake her up to eat! Things are going well - a little hectic, but that is to be expected. Alex loves his "baby sister" and is always making sure he has an eye on her. When she cries he says, "Don't cry baby sister. I'm right here. I am your big brother!"

I am so blessed! I have the most wonderful little family. A husband who has been wonderful through all of the craziness, a little prince, and now my baby princess. What more could I ask for?
