Cayden Elizabeth Ann Bernard

After 17 hours of contractions, 14 hours at the hospital and 1 blessed epidural 9 hours in, little Cayden Elizabeth Ann Bernard entered the world at 8:03 p.m. on March 7, 2011. She weighed in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces and was 21 inches long.Daddy's hands. First bath.
Grandma and grandpa Bernard had been waiting at the hospital for about 12 hours!Along with my parents, and eventually 7 other family members! They sure filled that waiting room!Sun came to see us the next day, along with about 20 other friends and family members!
Lauren was away at DECA state when Cayden was born, but when we got home on Wednesday, she got to see her host sister for the first time.

We are so blessed! More to come of course, as time permits! She sure likes to eat!!
