The babe is here!

Ellie Mae Schwen
born October 26, 2009
5:46 p.m.
8 lbs. 8 oz.
She's here!! and we are so so so happy.
I was induced Monday morning, and was dialated to a 10 around 3:00 p.m. I was ready for her to come! But we had to wait for the doctor to get there. FINALLY the doctor came around 5:30....who knows how I held on that long! After only a few pushes, Ellie came out! It was the most incredible, amazing, most spiritual thing we have ever experienced. And I am so lucky that I had such a smooth delivery. She is beautiful!!! We are so blessed that everything went well and that she is happy and healthy. :)
Being a mommy is the coolest thing. . . Ever! She has already brought so much joy into our lives. Ellie is a TOTAL daddy's girl though. She is the spitting image of him!
We are so blessed to have such great friends and family to help us. We love you!!!
Here's some pics for ya'll...... enjoy:)
