Our New Little Nancy Joan Platt


Finally she is here. After waiting not so patiently ALL day Friday, Friday Night, and Saturday Morning, I finally got the call to come to the hospital. We arrived at 10:00 am Saturday morning and they got me situated into my room. My nurse - who is the most AWESOME nurse anyone could have asked for - got me hooked up to my IV and got everything ready and made the phone call to my doctor telling him i was there and ready to go with whatever his orders were. He came and broke my water and we waited patiently for things to progress. We played a little bit of Farkle with Jon and Cozy arguing who was playing the "dumbest". But things progressed really fast. I got my epidural when i was to a six plus. They called my doctor. He was there within 5 - 10 minutes and came and checked me. He asked the nurse what i was to before he checked me and she told him and then he checked me and ask her how long ago it was that she checked me. She told him maybe 5 minutes ago and then he said i was to a 9 plus. He told her he would go get changed to get everything ready. Things weren't going good with the baby. Her heartbeat dropped down to 56 right after my epidural and they couldn't get it to go up. My nurse looked at me and said this baby is coming within the next 15 minutes no matter what as the NIC-U nurses came into my room preparing for the delivery. I felt sick inside. I didn't want an emergency c-section. I looked at Jon and the look on his face said it all. He was scared crapless. But i tried to keep positive. My doctor came back in the room and checked me and i was ready to go. I started pushing and before you know it, she was out. It was a little scary but she was healthy and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful baby than what we got. I had her at 4:37 pm. She weighed 6lb 15oz and was 19 1/2" long. She looks just like her big sister but with dark hair and lots of it. Mylee was bald until she was one. She is a good little baby and her big sister loves her to death and can't stop kissing her. We got home Sunday afternoon. Jon hung out with Mylee all day on Monday and left out of town Tuesday. We miss him and wished he was here. He didn't want to go but that's him for ya....willing to do anything to provide for us as a family and I am SO GRATEFUL for him and I LOVE HIM so much.
Here are some pics of our newest little addition to our family.

She's so cute! My mom told me that you had her but she didn't know her name... I love it by the way. Hope she's a good baby especially while Jon is gone.
