Our first major outings

Chris and I were invited to a wedding only two weeks after Coraline was born. Needless to say, she was a big hit at the party.

Next, we decided Coraline should get to pick her first pumpkin for Halloween from the Pumpkin Patch.

More cute photos

Nana's (Chris's mom) hand is caught in this photo. hehe. Coraline looks like she's trying to rock an imaginary microphone. That's my little rockstar!

New Arrival!!!

She's FINALLY arrived. I know, I'm late in writing this by two weeks. Yes, Coraline Vyara Laycock was born October 9th, 2009 at 5:04 am. She was 7lbs. 8oz. and 21 inches long. She's cute as a button and we love her very much.

It was a very long and difficult labor. I had been dealing with prodromal labor (constant contractions that stop and start) for a few days leading up to the big day. So, I was exhausted by the time they admitted me to the hospital. We were in labor for 36 hours before having to have an emergency c-section. not fun.

I'm recuperating and have been blessed to have so many wonderful family members helping Chris and I to deal with household chores while we recover and enjoy time with our new baby.
