Amaiya Julianna McCormick

On October 16Th, 2008 at 3:30p.m. our daughter Amaiya Julianna entered this world.

I had a doctor's appointment at 10:30 that morning and went in the room with the doctor, he checked me and said "Are you ready to have this baby?". My heart dropped. I got so excited and scared at the same time that I didn't know what to say. I immediately started to call Chad, my parents and Grandma. I was scared cause I was up there alone. But, I knew I didn't have to worry cause Chad and my wonderful Grandma were there in a blink of an eye.

I got into the room and they hooked me up to all the wonderful (most annoying crap) things they needed. They started the meds to make my contractions stronger and then at 2:30p.m. he came in and checked me after I got my upidural and broke my water (at this time I was dilated to 7). Dr. Chatelain said he would be back in 40 to 45 mins to check on me again so I waited. I didn't have to wait long cause 10 mins later he was back in the room. He check me and said those same words "Are you ready to have this baby?" cause I was dilated to 9! I was like HOLY CRAP, that didn't take long! So I started to push at 3pm. Chad was on my left and my sister Emily was on my right, this was the first time for both of them to see a baby being born. Mom and Grandma (who finally got to be in the room with me) were watching as I pushed our beautiful daughter out into this world.

She weighs 6lbs. 11ozs. and is 19 inches long. She's a spitting image of me (at least I think so) but, has a head full of beautiful brown hair like Chad. Amaiya is an amazing baby. She only crys when she is hungry or when she's getting her diaper changed. She's in love with her daddy! Big time Daddy's girl already! And Chad is so amazing with her. He's all about his baby girl!
