Meet Vera Winter

Baby number three is here! Vera Winter Wilson was born at 12:17 am on 12/17. She was 8 pounds, 7 ounces and 20 inches long. Don't worry, we have the details for all you delivery junkies out there. Bri was induced this time around thanks to some back-room dealing with her three-time ObGyn. We were in the delivery room for 14 hours! Most of the time was spent sitting around being bored. They gave her a very small petocin dose and refused to break her water. Bri got a little sqeamish when they put the IV in (like always) so the doctors were worried about the delivery going too fast. We passed the time messing around on Ben's laptop and the wireless network. This changed when Bri's Doctor arrived on the scene and kicked things into gear, about eight hours in.A few hours and an epideral later, it was time to start pushing. It took all of two contractions, maybe four or five minutes, to push the baby out. Not bad Bri! We were able to get a good amount of sleep then host some guests the next day. Here she is, Vera Wilson, age 12 hours. At this age, she looks exactly like Ginny and Violet did.

We're all excited to have a third little girl in our family. Ginny and Vi-Vi love their new sister.

Congratulations Bri! I didn't realize the time was that close for the new baby! I missed saying good bye before you left the ward. So I'm glad to keep updated with your blog. Congrats again and welcome Vera!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I am so impressed with the timing of 12:17 on 12/17. I wonder if that is any predictor of Vera's future personality and tendencies? So excited for you--what a great Christmas gift. CONGRATS! She is a DOLL.
