What the what?

Courtney Lynne Rawlins
9 lbs 4 oz.
20.5 inches
Dark hair. Yes that's right, a child of mine has hair!

I cannot believe how big she is, 2 lbs larger than my other two kids! Holymoly!

The story, I drank some (a lot) of castor oil - blah blah blah! Then I did something else nasty, unmentionable.
I fell asleep after about 3 hours of pure torture and woke up 2 hours later thinking that it didn't work, until I noticed I was having more contractions about 2 min apart. We went in to the hospital and 6 hours later she was here!
Epidural was heaven and the dr and nurses were awesome! I loved my delivery so much better than both ofmy others, they were so good to me!
I feel really good And baby girl is doing great. She iseatingwondeful, and she came out asking for a steak! Haha
I am looking forward to our steak Nd lobster dinner we get tomorrow night, sounds gross at the hospital, but their food is sensational!

Brian was filling out the birth certificate and I thought I would double-check the name. It's a good thing I did becAuse he had spelt her name. Corntney. Nice corn bri!

Pictures to come, when my swollen face and body have gone away. I look like a whale!

Love this sweet sweet new addition, welcome to the family Courtney!
