Our little girl finally came to Joel and I on December 24th 2009. I was at home on December 23rd and lost my water around 12:00 noon. I called Joel and asked him to come home from work and we headed for my doctors office to confirm that my water had infact broken. Once there they said that it had and sent us to the hospital. After 21 hours of labor, we were blessed with a beautiful little girl at 2:02 PM on Christmas Eve Day. We named her Ava Claire Anderson. She weighed 7 lbs 7 ounces, and was 20 inches long. Joel and I both have just fallen in love with her, and could not ask for a better Christmas present this year.
Here are a few pictures of our favorite little girl.
