Our baby is here!
Now that Brooklynn is born we are finally motivated enough to start a blog! Plus now I am home so I can work on it more easily. Since our baby girl came a month ago, we'll backtrack a little to get the history. Brooklynn Noelle Virgin was born at 12:23 pm on December 13, 2008 at American Fork Hospital in Utah. She weighed 5 lbs. 13 oz. and was 17 inches long. She was born with so much darj brown cute hair! She is absolutely gorgeous and so sweet! We've never been happier...seriously. It sounds so cheesy but when it's real you can't believe how amazing it feels to finally have your baby! Russell and I both said how excited we were to be parents before she came, but it's so much better than we imagined or expected. I started having contractions around 2:30 am on December 13. They were really managable until about 9:30 when we got to the hospital and then they became more intense. I went from a three to a seven in one hour. Half an hour later or so I was ready to start pushing. Between ten and twenty minutes later she was out. Russell got to deliver her and cut the cord, as well as give her her first bath. Everything went so well and she is so healthy. We just feel really blessed to have had things go so well.
