Aunika's big day

After nearly 24 hours of labor.... Aunika Avery Fox arrived at 6:25 pm weighing 8 lbs 3 ounces and 20" long. We are very grateful to have this beautiful little girl in our lives. Lisa started having contractions at 10 pm on Tuesday night. We didn't head into the hospital until 5 am on Wednesday when the contractions were starting to get painful and closer together. By 6 am the contractions were 3-5 minutes apart and getting more and more painful. At about 10 am the doctor decided it was time to break Lisa's water and get things moving at a faster pace. Lisa was thankful to get an epidural by noon. It then took from noon until 5 pm until Lisa was dilated to 10 cm and ready to start pushing. Finally after an hour and a half of pushing, little Aunika arrived. There are no words to describe how we both felt the first time we saw our little princess. We are very blessed to have her in our lives.
