Sophia Patricia Graham has arrived!

We are so excited to announce the birth of our little girl, Sophia. She is a perfect little 8 lb baby and we are so in love we can't imagine what life was like without her.

I went into labor at 7:30am on July 29th and was able to time my first contraction on the elliptical at 24 hour fitness. When I got home, I told Ted it was time and we tried to go about our day by feeding me high protein and walking for hours and hours to get the contractions 4 minutes apart.

We got to Kaiser Walnut Creek at about 10 or so at night and labored through the night. It was time to start pushing at 5:50 in the morning when I reached 10cm dilated. At that time, Ted stood by my side for the next three hours as I pushed our little bundle of joy out into the world at 8:37am on July 30, 2009. She was 8 lbs 10 oz and 21 inches long. It was so much more intense and amazing than I ever expected. I would not have wanted to do it with anyone else but Ted. He is absolutely the most amazing man in the world and I know he would do anything for me and Sophia.

So now we are adjusting to being home and enjoying every single minute with our little sweet pea.

We will try to post more pics soon!
