It's a beautiful baby girl!







I know, no apologizes necessary, but I am sorry I haven't gotten on here yet to post. :) After only 8 hours of being induced, an epidural not really working at all and just over an hour of pushing, Anna Lynn Tidd was born at 1:23pm on Thursday, October 18! She was 6 pounds 9 ounces, 19 inches long, born with a little bit of strawberry blondish hair and the biggest wide curious eyes. She is the most beautiful little girl you've ever seen.

We're reaching almost 2 days old now. She's feeding pretty good now, only lost about 8 ounces and is a pretty happy baby for the most part so far. :) I know that could change, but I can be happy about that right now.

She's met a lot of people already, great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, 2nd cousins, pseudo aunts and lots of friends. There are a lot more to meet, but I think she's up to the challenge.

We're heading home today. We've had an amazing experience at the hospital. All the nurses have been so helpful and wonderful to work with. They answered all of our questions, taken minutes to hours to work with us with different things and we feel that much better going home with the knowledge they gave us. The doctors have been great and the hospital is so nice (my own room and the same room from start to finish).

I'll write more later and upload pictures. :)




Love to you all!

Gary, Christie & Anna
