Chili Pepper has finally arrived...And her name is...

Just wanted to let you all know that Chili Pepper has finally arrived! And her name is Bryleigh Eden Atchison.

After a couple days of active labor, it was determined that my labor had stalled. I was not opening past 9 cm and Chili Pepper was too big to be born naturally by me. Guess she inherited her father's shoulders! So, at 11:53am on Sunday, November 11, 2007, Big Little Chili Pepper was born via Cesarean Section. She weighed in at 8 lbs and 7 ozs and is 20 inches long. She gave a healthy cry shortly after coming into this world and has hardly made a peep since!

Here are two photos that were taken in the Surgical Delivery Room shortly after she was born. And there will be plenty more on the blog once I get them down loaded.

Sorry to cause so much worry and concern with the delay...but after going 48 hours of labor without sleep and no pain medication...I was a little tuckered out!

As of right now, we are suppose to be leaving the hospital some time on Wednesday.
