At 4:22 p.m., after sixteen hours of labor, three hours of pushing, and one emergency C-section, we welcomed the newest Ballard into the family on her due date--March 10, 2011. She weighed 6 lbs. 10 oz. and measured 19 inches long. We are absolutely smitten and taking it all in. There will be many, many more pictures to come!

Make little Thank you bags for the nurses Finish Thank you notes
- Finish packing our hospital bag
Clean our stinkin' house Pluck my eyebrows (yes, this IS a priority) Go to the temple
I must also declare that I have loved being pregnant, and it makes me kind of sad to think it's almost over. I love the people in line at the store or in the elevator who seem genuinely excited for me. I even like the random guy outside of Arby's who excitedly told me I was "gettin' big!" I love feeling the camaraderie with other pregnant ladies. I love how it's brought Cole and I closer. I've just felt incredibly blessed throughout this whole experience. Hopefully next time I post, it'll be with pictures of our little girl! Until then...prayers are welcome!
