Here she is!! Emma Grace Blackwood

So, after an hour of trying to get an epidural in and hitting my nerves 3 different times, the anesthesiologist decided to do a spinal block. With much prayer and confidence in my obgyn, I delivered a beautiful girl at 8:50am. Emma weighed 8lbs 6oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. As you can see in the pictures, she has a head full of black hair. We stayed in the hospital the full 3 days to give ourselves some time to rest and heal. Due to not having an epidural I was pretty sore from the beginning, but I am doing better now. The key is to keep moving around! Emma is doing well also. She is healthy, and we are so thankful for that. God is good!
