Brooklyn Kay Nelson

Born 8:33 PM, Friday October 6th.
Weight: 6lb 12 oz
Length: 19 3/4" long
Labor (from water break to birth): 20 minutes!

To summarize the day (I'll expound later):
- Too early to hospital Friday morning
- Lots of contractions at home
- Check in to hospital around 4:00 PM
- Worried that epidural might not happen
- Got epidural finally
- Had baby

Mom and Dad are doing fine. Big sister is good, too. Brooklyn is healthy, but is having some breathing issues. All vital signs / x-rays say she's fine, but she's breathing a little slower than the doctors would like. She's been on an oxygen feed until recently. More updates to come. Probably get to come home tomorrow afternoon.

A few more pictures can be found here.

Congratulations. She is beautiful!!!! Kay is my mom's middle name...we were going to have our little girl's (if it was a girl) middle name Kay too. I am glad things went quickly and smoothly. Will continue to pray for her breathing to get back to normal and a good transition as you go home. Blessings and congrats! Thanks for the update!!
