Our Ali Grace

Alison Grace Chisholm was born at 10:28 a.m. on Wednesday, September 10, 2008. The labor was about 10 1/2 hours long and I got an epidural after around 8 hours. I only pushed for 10 minutes and it was sooo fast! We are so blessed that our Ali Grace is here and healthy!
Mommy, Daddy, and Ali Grace's first picture together.
She was such a big surprise! Right before she was born I looked over at Brian and asked what he thought the baby was, and he said a boy. All of the doctor's and nurses in the room were so excited. And then there she was, our Ali Grace! Praise God! She is beautiful! The labor was perfect and her heartbeat was perfect the entire time--not one abnormality! She is such a miracle to us!
Ali Grace stayed awake the whole time she was in the nursery after being born. When they brought her to us Brian wrapped her up really good and she went straight to sleep and slept in his arms for 2 hours! She just wanted her Daddy! I think this was the moment that she wrapped him around her little finger.
Grandmamma, Grandpa, and Aunt Amanda came to see us Thursday and helped us pack up and go home. We left a little over 24 hours after she was born because we were both doing so well.
She looks so tiny in her car seat! I remeber when Jack was that little and going hom for the first time in this seat! He wore that same hat too. :)
