Jamie Addison Claire Hinckley!

Born June 24, 2010

7lb 3oz, 17 in.

Katie was scheduled to be induced at 7:30am. We dropped off Tyler with Grandma and Grandpa the night before, I took the day off work, and we were up at 6:30 after staying up late getting things ready. We get it, check in, get Katie all set up in a bed, and they start her pitocin to get contractions started. On our way to having a new little baby. 20 minutes in, they inform us of a tiny little previously unmentioned detail- you have to wait 6 hours after eating to get induced.

Since Katie had had a few bites of oatmeal on the way out the door, the doctor decided to send us home to come back the next morning. Fortunately, he ultimately changed his mind and decided to keep us around and resume inducing at 1. Whoo!

3:45 Katie is dilated to a 5-6 and gets her epidural

4:15 Epidural is ready, and she is now fully dilated to a 10

4:36 Pushing begins

4:41 (3 contractions later): Baby!

2 1/2 years ago, Katie spent 2 hours pushing Tyler out, and it has clearly paid off.

Some more of the pretty girl...

We're now in the hospital, Mamma and Baby are both doing so well, and we should be checking out Saturday morning. Speaking of Tyler, he was very unsure what to make of the new baby.

What's more interesting- McFlurry or Baby Jamie? :


He finally came around, though (albeit spoon still in hand):

Tyler is still trying to understand that "Mamma's Baby" was never just a funny name for "belly button."

Good job Mamma and Baby Jamie!

You guys are amazing for getting all this posted so quickly! She is BEAUTIFUL! Good job Katie! Can't wait to meet the little Miss. Get some rest, you earned it.

Rachel said...

Way to go! It sounds like everything went well and we're so excited for you :) Tyler will come around... or maybe it will be a blessing if he doesn't for a few weeks. I STILL can't keep Avery off Evelyn.

Judie said...

She is beautiful, and Mom looks pretty good too. Of course, ice cream is more interesting. Our very best to you all. Judie and Delbert

Melissa said...

Yea! Yea! Yea! And 3 pushes? This gives me hope for future births... that 2 hours is no good really. She so pretty! Can't wait to see more pictures.

Oh My She is adorable. Way to go Mom. You guys did a fantastic job. How great that you had such a easy delivery. You really deserved it since you were so tired during your pregancy. Ms Jamie looks ready to move right in to your blessed home. Congratulations, thank you for another beautiful Great Grand Baby. Looking forward to meeting her. Love you all, Your Grndmoo

Congratulations! I love Tyler's reaction to the baby. And... three pushes?! I'm so impressed! I want to do that! :)

Once again, congratulations!

She is so precious!! And looks a lot like her big brother. I hope he's finding that she's more interesting than a McFlurry. Congratulations!! Kendy :)
