Presenting Vivian Rose Grissom

"Happy Thanksgiving. My water broke." That is what Josh woke up to at 1am on Thursday morning. We called his momma and she came over and we were on the way to the hospital. Got there about 3:30am and I was at a 3 and having still mild contractions. We got in our birthing room and I was at a 4 before they FINALLY got the epidural in and I was able to focus a little. We waited about an hour and she came in and checked me and I was a 9. The coolest part about it is that I was suppose to have the on call doctor deliver me and she called my regular doctor and Dr. Crowe came to deliver Vivi! She walked in and we said what are you doing here?? She said she has teenagers and they were still sleeping, no big deal. :) Super cool! I pushed for about 5 minutes and there she was! Vivian Rose Grissom made her first appearance at 9:16am Thursday morning, Thanksgiving day. She weighed 6.14lbs and was 19 1/2 inches long. She is precious and perfect!

Just us

She's still in there

She's out! Really it was about that fast!

We got 3 roses from Daddy for his 3 girls!

In case you can't tell she is wearing a shirt with ballerina shoes and a tutu for her ride home. This time she actually fits in her clothes. (NK's outfit was humongous and I had to roll the sleeves up several times, she looked like a clown. You live and you learn.)

The cats were not quite sure what to think. Meila has been pretty happily curious. Mr. Bobo has been there,done that and wants nothing to do with her. NK wants to hold her all the time and has been a fantastic big sister. She took a picture of Vivi to school and showed it off to her friends. We are so thankful and blessed for our precious new addtion and our whole family and friends. We have been showered with gifts, food, and well wishes. Thank you to all!
