Kaileigh Marie Savva!!!
At 5:30am on Monday the 12th, Jamie began 23 hours of laboring at home before we went to the hospital at about 4:30am Tuesday the 13th. After a total of 28.5 hours of laboring it only took about 30 minutes of pushing (thanks to Jamie's previous dance experience). Finally at 10:43am, our beautiful daughter was born! At a whopping 5 lbs 11 oz. and a lengthy 18.75 inches she is our little "peanut". Kaileigh has a lot of dark brown hair upon her head and dark eyes that will most likely turn brown (like her daddy's). She has very long skinny legs and a cute little tush. The only time she really cried was as soon as she came out, other then that all she has done are little whimpers here and there. Luckily, no real crying (yet). Nik was very brave in not only watching the birth but cutting the umbilical cord as well! Jamie, thankfully, didn't feel ANYTHING after she received her very welcomed epidural! Denise flew out Tuesday morning at 7am expecting to arrive at 10:30am. However, due to delays on the way down, she didn't arrive until just after the baby was born. She had to almost fight off a Nazi nurse to gain access to our labor room! All in all, the pain and suffering was worth the beautiful miracle we received: Kaileigh Marie Savva!
