Hadley Elizabeth arrived on Saturday evening, June 25th, at 7:16pm (41 weeks and 2 days). She is 7 pounds, 14.1 ounces and 20.5 inches long. Everyone is happy and healthy and so in love!
Her birth went pretty perfectly with 17 hours of labor, as did our hospital stay, and we were able to come home on Monday afternoon. I very narrowly avoided an induction - it was scheduled for 5am on Monday - and am just so, so thankful that she decided to come on her own! She is seriously the sweetest baby and I am starting to feel better myself, recovery-wise. I can't wait to share her birth story next week, but for now just wanted to pop in with the good news and wish you all a wonderful holiday weekend!
