Arrival of: Kaitlyn Taylor McLean
**This was edited as we changed the name of the baby!**
The baby is here! At 2:00 am on Aug 15 Anna's water broke. We then arrived at the hospital @ 3:20 am. Anna was in labour immediately, however her contractions were still about 5 - 10 min apart. During the course of the morning, her contractions got harder and harder, especially on her lower back, as the baby was facing her back and of course was puting all sorts of pressure on her spin and pelvis. @ 12:30 pm on Aug 15, we made the decision to have the epidural + to then be induced as she was still only 3 cm dilated and her contractions were still about 4 min apart. She was fully dilated by 3:24 pm and then we started the pushing. At 4:34 Anna gave birth to happy and healthy baby girl. Kaitlyn Taylor Mclean was 7 lbs 4 oz and 21 inches long. It is a good thing she was early, otherwise she may have been a 10 lb baby. This is a just a quick note but here are some of baby Kaitlyn's first pictures.
