Sophie Kinnon Quist

Well, I am a little behind on posting this. But our little girl arrived on Monday Sept 13, 2010 at 5:40am. After 17 hours of active labor :( She weighed 8 lbs and 11 oz. That was a little bigger than I was expecting but not too far off. I am glad she was 5 days early though because she would have only gotten bigger!

She is doing great and she loves to wake her mommy up a couple times a night. We are adjusting to the lack of sleep but it makes it a little hard when I find it impossible to sleep during the day. I have always had a hard time napping in the day and I still find it hard even with a lack of sleep at night. I am sure it will catch up to me soon.

So my labor story isn't too exciting. I didn't have anything crazy happen, just that it was long. My water broke Sunday morning at 8:30, right after Chad said " you know, if your water broke this morning I wouldn't have to teach priesthood"...10 minutes later he got his wish. I thought she would make an appearance that day but she held on till Monday morning.
I got an epidural, which when I asked for one, I got one in about 5 minutes. So labor was hard but not brutal. I have to say I would give birth again no problem, but being pregnant is the worst thing I have ever experienced!

Anyway we are loving having a baby in our home. Chad and I keep saying to each other that we cant believe she is ours. We think she is cute! She looks a little like both of us so it should be interesting to watch her features change over time.

Here are some pictures of Sophie.

38 weeks

My sister took a few belly pictures. Other than the fact that I look huge, they turned out pretty good! They were taken at 38 weeks and 2 days. I am now 9 days away from my due date! I am freaking out a little bit. I am excited to meet our little girl but soon I will be a Mom and that
seems crazy!
