Baby Aubrey Lynn Pitcher has arrived!

She has made her grand entrance and we are both doing great.

She was born at 12:32 a.m. on June 15th.

She weighs 6 lbs. 4.1 ozs.

She is 19 1/2 inches long.

Her apgars were 9 and 9.

Big sister Lindsey is quite excited and thinks she's hers :)

They started my petocin around 6:20 p.m. So, my labor was about 6 hours although I actually had already started the beginning stages of labor Saturday around noon on my own before ever arriving at the hospital for my induction at 5 p.m. I received my epidural at 9:20 p.m. The doctor told me I was complete and ready to have the baby at 12:22 a.m. I delivered her 10 minutes later after having only pushed for 3 to 4 minutes through 2 1/2 contractions. Wow, I was so happy.

I am going to get some sleep since it is now 4:45 a.m. and we are all settled in.



PS: This is Leanna's mother. This is 1:33 p.m. Leanna was not able to post pictures as the computer at the hospital (my laptop) either crashed or the charger is not working. Leanna was trying so hard to get pictures for everyone to see, but that will have to happen at a later time.

So glad you had an easy labor and delivery! Jenn told me this morning at church that you had called her, so I already had heard, but just thought I would check and see if there were any pictures. Congratulations to you all and I think it's especially neat that she arrived on Father's Day! BTW, Chris and I were just discussing Mercy Fairfield at lunch today. I had Lauren there and it was definately my favorite hospital. (I had a different one with each baby) I LOVED the way they were so accomidating to visitors and siblings! Rest and relax and ENJOY little Aubrey!
