BABY TIME

So we made an appointment to do the C-Section today, April 22nd, at 8AM. This is 6 days prior to Harper Grace Jackman's due date (OOOPS, DID I SAY HARPER GRACE JACKMAN??!?!??!?) We got everything ready last night and the plan was to get up at 5AM and get to the hospital in time for our 6AM check in. Of course, baby Harper had other plans. Erica has been having some contractions since Saturday and around 3AM she got out of bed because they were getting stronger and more frequent, to the point where it was keeping her up. At 4:10 her water broke, on our highly fluid resistant leather couch (THANK GOODNESS). It was odd to rush to the hospital, but at the same time just grab all of our stuff which was already packed. By the time we got there Erica had dilated to 5cm. The hospital staff was like, GET THIS BABY OUT. So they did. Check out some sweet photos below. Video and more photos possibly coming up later today and/or tomorrow. For now, admire at how amazingly beautiful and hairy our little girl is (8 lbs. 1 oz | 20"):

Congratulations! She is SOOOOO cute! I can't wait to see more pictures. She is really adorable, look at all of that hair she has!

I'm guessing she is named after Harper Lee, author of the greatest book about a lawyer of all time. Are you going to give her the nickname "Scout"? She is a beauty, and she must have wanted to make sure SHE was in control here, not some doctor picking out her birthday for her...
Congratulations.

Jan said...

Judy, I don't know if you're right about Harper Lee - but I agree with you - so that's what I'm hoping for! And what a legacy!
