And if you can't pronounce her last name...you're not alone! :)
Yil'-uh-nee-mee. Now you're in the know.
First, here's a shot of Micah and Adam last night as they arrived at the hospital.
There was talk of inducing, but she was far enough along they decided to forego that. Very glad! Micah wanted to experience a water birth, so that's what they did. She gave birth 2-1/2 hours after arriving at the hospital. She said it was very quick and "relatively" easy. She credits the water bath with being very relaxing. She stopped having contractions for about 20 minutes, then had two very hard ones, and there was Adele! Her regular doctor arrived a few minutes too late to help, but the ER doctor did a great job. (Micah says, the ER doctor has nicknamed her Garbage Gut because she always arrives at the clinic with a pop and candy bar!)
Here's Micah's Facebook announcement just a few hours ago:
She's here! Adele JoLee was born March 31st at 11:25pm. 6lbs 12oz and 19.5 inches of sweet, squishy baby I couldn't have asked for a more perfect water birth experience and we are very thankful everyone is healthy and feeling great!
Exactly the same size as sister Audrey was!
Mom and baby doing fine!
Thanks for prayers! God has blessed us once again.
Shalom to all!
