This is our first holiday together as a family! We couldn't resist taking pictures of her in the pumpkin. Isn't she the cutest? our night consisted of ordering pizza, carving a pumpkin and waiting for the trick-or-treaters. Things have been pretty good so far. She is a pretty good baby and doesn't cry too much. For the most part she is sleeping really good.

She's finally here! We can't believe we are parents now! We're to young for that, right? Our beautiful daughter arrived here on October 22 at 12:23 p.m., 5 days late. It was a lot of work for Teesha to get her here, but Teesha did great. The contractions kicked in good around 7:30 p.m. on the 21st, so needless to say that we did not get any sleep. The contractions started getting really bad around 2 a.m. The nurse came to check her around 4 a.m. and as soon as Teesha heard the word seven she blurted out, "Can I get the epidural now?" I've never seen her respond to something so quickly. After that she was in a lot less pain. She started to push hard aroung 11:30 and a little less than an hour later Paetyn was born. She was 8 pounds 6 ounces and 20 inches long. She has a pretty good size head, 37.5 cm, no wonder it was so hard for her to come out. She is the cutest little thing. We are so happy that she is finally here and we can acctually see her and hold her. We should get to finally go home from the hospital tommorrow. Teesha is excited to go home, but I think she is going to miss all the help of the nurses.
