Lillian Mabel

Our sweet baby girl, Lillian Mabel, was born at 8:35 Sunday morning! She weighed 7lbs 12oz and was born after 12 hours of Cervidil, 19 hours of active labor (w/ Pitocin), and 3-1/2 hours of pushing. We named her after two of her great grandmothers.

Greg and I are so incredibly in love with her. Things have been crazy busy, but I am looking forward to writing a birth story soon. There were a few hiccups along the way, but everyone is doing well, and we came home from the hospital yesterday! I can't believe we got to take her home and that she is ours. Here are a few pictures:

Dear Kristin,

I've been following your blog for awhile....as a 30 year old woman with CF who seems to be extremely healthy, just like you, your journey has provided me with strength and inspiration. I'm not a mommy, but you've given me hope that one day I may be in your shoes. I am so happy to read that Lillian got here safely. Now enjoy her! :)
