Today was an exciting day for the Georgia Blaisdell's - We welcomed Nicole Alyssa to our family at 6:50 AM this morning. Mommy and Nicole are doing very well. Nicole has beautiful brown hair and the cutest little chubby cheeks you'll ever see! :0) Pictures to be posted shortly! :0)
We were a bit surprised by how fast the process moved. We arrived at the hospital just before 6 AM. Valerie was in her delivery room by about 6:15 AM. I filled out some paper work, parked the car, got back to the room at 6:35, and Nicole was born at 6:50 AM! Needless to say, it went so fast from the time that we arrived that Valerie had to go "all naturale" with the birth - no epidural for her. She was a CHAMP!!! She amazed me beyond belief! I am so proud of her! (Note - Nicole didn't make it any easier by being a bouncing 9 lb. 2 oz. - 22 inch long baby!) Thankfully, everything from that point went so well. Nicole's tests were good. Mommy was doing well and healthy. Big sister Megan arrived at 10:30 with Natalie and was so sweet with her new baby sister. She enjoyed holding her a few times with some help and just loved on her - at least when she wasn't chasing after the two balloons she and Natalie bought! Grandma, Grandad, Uncle Kevin, Aunt Kelly, and a few friends came by to welcome Nicole and celebrate with us. What an amazing day!!! God is so good! We are so grateful for his amazing blessing to us.
