Meet Harper Surie

Harper arrived at 11:34 AM, Wednesday November 9th, 2011. I was sleeping on the couch that night due to pregnancy restlessness and about 1:00 AM my water broke. I shot up and ran to the bathroom, thankfully making it before a big mess was made. Grady was porbably the most smitten with Harper out of the three boys.

Hayden loves her, but I think it makes him nervous to hold her, we had to talk him into it. So I get situated with my water breakage and wake up Travis, it's time to go.

Coy is quite taken with her as well, he is constantly checking on her and asking questions. So we grab the kids get them in the car and head of to my friend Abbey's. Thank goodness for Abbey who got my kids to school the next day and watched Grady for us the whole day Harper was born.

I have to admit it was boring at first I wasn't in real labor and we were just waiting. Eventually the labor pains started coming on strong and I was able to get an epideral.

When it was time to push, she wasn't coming out, so they made me stop and gave me some petocin to make the contraction harder and faster. 1 half hour of petocin and a few minutes of pushing and out she came.

Three people announced it was a girl, but I still had to see it for myself. Spiritual impressions, and ultrasound tech, and three people announce it's a girl when she is born and I still need to see it with my own eyes. I just can't believe I have a daughter.

She eats like a champ and loves her Daddy. She calms right down when Travis holds her and Travis loves every minute of it.

She weighed in at 7 lbs. 1 oz. 20 inches long. My biggest baby yet.

We are so excited to have her here and love her so much. She is the perfect addition to our family.
