Ann Marie Mills is HERE!!! :)

BEWARE: LOTS of pictures!
Ann Marie Mills was born on January 11th, 2011 at 4:31pm. Weighing 6lbs. 15oz and 20 inches long. She is absolutely beautiful and TINY! She has a head full of dark hair. And as of now...we don't think she looks like either of her brothers at this age.
Short version birth story: We arrived at the hospital at 6:30am to be induced. I thought for sure this process would go way faster. But, of course...like everything else in this pregnancy, anything I expected did not happen. :) I was dilated to a 6 by 3ish that afternoon. I had an epidural and was comfortable. But quickly that changed. I started feeling a little pressure down low...then within a matter of minutes it was UNBEARABLE! I could feel EVERYTHING! I dilated from a 6 to a 10 in a matter of minutes. I was bawling, coming off the bed in pain. I knew that it was time to have her 1) bc I needed to push 2) bc my nurse told me NOT to push bc we had to wait on the Dr. Thats a biggie bc usually you push with your nurse for a while before she calls the Dr. Dr. Seeker came "sprinting"(what my Mom said) in there to catch Ann Marie. I pushed twice...could hardly see my Dr. through my tears. But thank God she was tiny bc she came out! No worries...I felt that too. :) I was so happy she was here! She was so cute and I knew the minute she came out that she was little. But I was shocked she was that small. Alright...thats the story. It went from being B-O-R-I-N-G to quite exciting in a matter of minutes. Derek, my Mom, and my sister were in the room the see her be born. My sister, who is always my video person...I think videoed the whole birth. There was no time for her to get to an "ok" angle. Oh well...at least it is my daughter, maybe one day she can watch it. If she wants of course, and WAY later down the road. Like in her adult life. ha ha. Either way, she is so precious! Here are lots and lots of pictures. Not going to write under them because it takes too long.

Real quick: We came home very fast from the hospital..stayed less than 24 hours. I LOVED that. I do not sleep well in the hospital. Anyways...at first Parker acted like Ann Marie wasn't there. I think because his cousins were at the house and he was acting "cool". ha. But Micah was a little apprehensive. Last night after everyone left Parker was SO sweet. He would touch her ears, her hair, her fingers...and say "I love Ann Marie's hair(fingers, ears, u get the picture)." It is precious. He keeps saying how much he likes Ann Marie. And Micah has shown lots of interest in holding her and kissing her. Last night was hard bc Ann Marie was having belly aches all night and both my boys were up randomly. I think it was all because of the change in our house. But AM is doing much better today and the boys seem so much better too. Hoping for normalcy soon.

Enjoy the pictures!

Lindsey, She is beautiful! I can not believe all the hair she has. That's great you can stick a bow in it already. I wish we lived closer. Brian said we could start a Papa Johns out your way once he starts a few in Georgia...it's a long shot but that would be so fun! Can't wait to see her grow up and turn into a beautiful young lady:o)
