THE BABY IS HERE!!!!

and it's a GIRL!!!! She decided to bless us with her presence a little ahead of schedule. I guess all that Black Friday shopping got things moving. At least she was a polite enough little girl to let her mom shop all day long! :)
I started having contractions a little before midnight on Friday the 23rd and really debated whether or not I was really in labor or not (I knew I was, but I always get nervous that I am being paranoid and they are just going to send me home once I get to the hospital!). This one moved along quite a bit quicker than with Teagun. We got to the hospital shortly after 1am and I was dilated to a 5 already and contractions were less than 3 minutes apart. They had to give me a shot two separate times to try to slow things down so that the doctor could get here. The first shot worked for a short amount of time and the second one did nothing. After the c-section, the doctor said I had already dilated to an 8+ by the time they pulled her out. I kept wishing she would arrive before the scheduled c-section (and am still glad she did), but I kept asking Trevor during the contractions "Why did I want this to happen??? I could be having NO pain if we had made it to Tuesday!" :)
Both baby and mom are doing very well! She is just adorable and so dang sweet. I am still waiting for my MIL to bring Teagun in to meet her - can't wait!
My friend dropped off her laptop for me so I could update you all while in the hospital - thanks, Holli! No pictures yet - sorry!

So here's her name and stats:

Emery Lynn Baker
Born 2:53am 11/24/07
6lbs 15oz
20 inches long
