black friday baby

At least I got Thanksgiving dinner this time around!

After two days of start and stop labor starting on Tuesday night, my father-in-law’s turkey did the trick. We arrived home from dinner and two hours later, we were on the way to the hospital birthing center to meet the midwife.

The stopping and starting continued throughout the night and I needed a little “help” from pitocin by late morning, which quickly worked.

My little girl officially arrived at 1:27 pm on Friday. We’re tired, but all healthy and happy. Here she is…

Lucia Cate Hassrick, 8 lbs, 20 inches.

p.s. In case your wondering, it’s pronounced LOO-sha.
