Emma's Arrival

Yes! She's here! Emma Kay Davis joined us at 4:36 a.m. on March 1 - TJ & Jodi's six year anniversary! And it was snowing in Alabama!! The girl definitely knows how to make an entrance!

The labor & delivery went great. We checked into the hospital at midnight Saturday night. At the first check I was 4cm so we knew it was the real deal. After phone calls to moms and drugs an hour later we settled in for whatever came next. I figured it would be a little while before she arrived - yeah right! By 4 am I was fully dilated and the nurses were calling the doctor on call. He must've stopped to get a coffee on the way because he didn't get there until 4:30, and after one push Emma was here at 4:36!

The days in the hospital were fine; surgery went great, and by Tuesday we were home. And we had a great homecoming! Tre had colored a welcome home mommy & Emma picture, and Colin poked Emma in the nose! Luckily she didn't cry... I guess she's already adjusting to having older brothers! And throughout the week the boys have been adjusting to her: Tre likes to say good morning to her, and then goes about his day as normal. Colin is concerned whenever she cries, but other than that he's in his own world. Except for when I'm changing her, then both boys pull up stools next to the changing table and watch all the action.

All in all we're adjusting very well. We are a very blessed and happy family. Updates will come when I'm not too tired from chasing after two boys and caring for baby girl!
