Introducing...Sailyr Jae Hess

She is here! Sailyr Jae Hess was born June 12, 2008 at 1:34 pm. She weighed 7 lb. 15 oz and was 20". She weighed a whole pound more than Skylar did at birth! She is so beautiful and gets prettier every day! My labor and delivery were sooo easy...I always feel really lucky about that. Just Trav and I were in the delivery room (along with the doctor and nurses, of course), and it was really nice to be able to share this together. Afterward, we had quite a few visitors which was fun! We came home on Saturday morning where my mom had been staying with Skylar. She has been so much help this week! I don't know what we would have done without all of the help. Especially since Monday Travis, me and Skylar came down with the stomach flu! My mom has cleaned and taken care of everybody...she has been so busy and I am so grateful! Trav and I are feeling better but Skylar still isn't 100%, and now my mom has it! Oh No!!! I guess it will be a good test for me to prove that I can do this two kid thing after all.
Skylar is taking more interest in the baby. She points at her and says, "baby". She doesn't really get it quite yet but little does she know that they are going to be best friends! I can't wait! Babies are such a miracle and being a mom is the greatest job in the world!

One week and counting!

So I went to my doctor appointment on Tuesday and she scheduled me for an induction on Thursday, June 12! That means one week from today we will be parents of two cute baby girls (unless I go into labor on my own before then)! I can't wait to see this baby's face and snuggle her! We still aren't sure what her name is but I guess we will figure it out before we leave the hospital! I hear they make you put a name on the Birth Certificate or something...anyways only one week left!
