Baby Mia

She's finally here! Baby Mia Grace Lambert was born on August 11th at 7:13 pm weighing in at 7 lbs. 12 oz. and measuring 20 inches long. I went into the hospital at 9:30 in the morning. By the time they did all the paperwork and finally got me hooked up to an IV (it took five tries and three nurses to finally find a vein that worked) I was able to get the pitocin started at 1:00 and my water broken at 2:00.

The epidural was at 5:00, pushing at 7:00 and baby at 7:13. All went smoothly and Mia is beautiful and healthy.

Proud Daddy!

All the sisters meeting the newest addition for the first time. They were all very excited and fought over who could hold her.

Brooklyn loves baby Mia and wants to do everything she does from laying on a blanket to making smacking noises when she eats.

The hospital I was at offered a VIP package. We decided that since this is our last baby we might as well splurge. Included in the package was a huge labor and delivery room with this view,

A flower arrangement,

A gournet dinner (I had filet mingon),

A massage (no pictures of that), and a limo ride home.

The girls rode with us in the limo and as she was drinking sprite from a Champaigne flute Emma declared "This hospital rocks!"

Mia at three days old. Grandma is now here to help our for a few weeks and we are all getting used to the new arrival. We are grateful she is here healthy and wonderful.
