She's Here!

 Im about 10 days late posting this, but life is a little different now! Meet Everly Claire...
She was born May 9th at 2:17pm. She weighed 8lbs 12ozs & was 20 &1/2". And looks almost identical to her sister (who absolutely loves her!)  

My labor was a breeze! Three pushes & she was out! I was to be induced at 7am, but I went in around 1:30am because my contractions were about 8 min apart. I was already dilated to 4cm, & my contractions were never very strong. At 7cm I still was in no pain, but went ahead & got an epidural. The nurse said if I waited too much longer she'd be afraid it would be too late to get one. Had I known it would've only taken 3 pushes, I may have skipped the epidural! They broke my water around 8am & she was born at 2:17pm. 
We got to bring her home on Mothers Day :) 

Its been an adjustment with 2 now... Luckily my mom is here, she has been a huge help! Now that Everly's about 10 days old I'm getting my energy back & she slept from around 10:30pm last night until about 2:30am. I dont feel like such a zombie with a schedule like that! Im sure it'll get easier as time goes on :) And Ill try to be better about posting pics :) 
And one last one...
