Greetings, everyone!!! :)

I have had a very exciting holiday season...

I am ecstatic to announce that Jason and I have a new addition to the family, Liliana. Liliana was born through a last-minute cesarian section on December 27, 2005 at 11:47am.

I had originally gone to the hospital that day to see if Lily had decended. After the ultrasound was performed, we saw that she indeed was in a transverse position so a C-section was necessary. After consulting our doctor for a date, he paused for a second and said, "You know what? Since you're already here, why don't we just do the C-section today... say.. noon?". I was like, "What?? Noon, as in... today.. in an hour and a half?". And yes, that's what he meant. Jason went on a mad dash back to the house, grabbed our overnight bag and made our obligatory "We're having the baby now" phone calls. I called FB immediately and let him know that he needed to get his ass in gear and on his way. He actually was at the hospital within 15 minutes, which is scary because his commute should have been about 30 minutes (God love him...).

So these are the photos that were taken at the hospital. They should tell you the story of how the day went....

This picture is obviously Pre-Op. I'm nervous because I'm walking into the Operating room about to get my epidural block.














FB is always there to make me feel better... We capture the moment with a fun picture. :)



















Jason and Mom got dressed for the occasion. They both were excited and nervous to be in the Operating Room.



















This is one of the Lily's first pictures. She's a little cold and grumpy being out of the womb. She weighed in at 9 lbs. 9 oz. (yes... she's BIG).















Groggy Liliana














"What's going on??? Where am I???"




















Sleepy Liliana...




















"Long day...I'm going to sleep."



















Jason and I want to thank everyone for all your warm wishes and comments. I'll be a busy gal so I won't be checking in as often (obviously), but I'll keep you updated. Hope everyone is doing well!

Love,
Armi :)
