Welcome Mercy!

Mercy Kathleen Goodrich!!!!

7 lbs, 19", January 14th @4:10pm

The proud new parents! Kim & Jordan

Not so pretty...getting to the point where I don't care what I, or my house looks like. Can't move around as swiftly...haha. 35 1/2 weeks here.

Mercy was born at home with a midwife assisting Kim and Jordan through everything. Kim was 2 weeks to the date overdue, but her labor only lasted 3 hours total! It wasn't medications-all natural, but all worth it. Kim and Jordan are nestled quietly at home with their baby girl of only 2 days old. No hussle and bustle of the hospital or nurses coming in and out of the room to change her catheder. Just them. Aaaaah. It's beautiful and they are so happy they finally have their baby girl!! Congrats guys!
I on the other hand, am miserable. My stretch marks are climbing and itchy! Noooo! I sleep in 2 hour increments. It hurts to stand up, sit up, squat down, lean over--whatever. All worth it in the long run. I can't wait to hold our baby boy and lay on my back. haha. =) Josh has been magnificent. Just wonderful. I love him.
Oh yeah, and I turned 25 on January 11th. =)
