A New Cousin For Pearl!

Arianna Grace was born yesterday at 7:25 am to my sister-in-law Carolyn and her husband Ben.
She was born 12 days early, is in great health, and has a full head of hair.  Arianna is a tiny and beautiful little girl.
Jeremy and I are so happy that all of our sisters are having babies that will be close in age to Pearl.  My sister Kara had little Tucker on Labor Day and my sister Kacy is due in February as well.
Arianna's birth story was one of those amazing ones that pregnant women dream of having.  Carolyn spent a few hours at home with contractions, but wasn't sure for most of that time whether she was in actual labor or not because they weren't that painful.  She even sent her husband to work!  They eventually did get painful though so she called Ben and they headed to the hospital.  Her doctor walked in with coffee-in-hand expecting to be in for the long haul, but Carolyn was already dilated to 10 cm and fully effaced.  She started pushing right after they arrived at the hospital and Arianna was born an hour later.
What a blessing!
Arianna's stats:
5 lbs 4 oz
17.5 inches long


  1. Oh my gosh Congrats Carolyn! What an awesome delivery story...and yes I'm slightly jealous that she wasn't even close to being overdue, pushed out a teeny tiny baby and had an incredibly short labor! Haha I guess we all can't get lucky! ;) Arianna is adorable and THAT HAIR! So glad she was healthy!

  2. What a lucky bum-mama:-) haha! Congratulations to you all! What a gorgeous little bebe. xoxo
