Elaine Vittoria Hemmert 6-04-08 3:15 am

Elaine Vittoria Hemmert has graced us with her presence. After 20 hrs of labor for Amanda, Elaine just stopped making progress so at 2:15 am we decided to get her out by C-Section... which it was a good thing to. Elaine was born at 9lbs 1 oz and 22 inches long, or 55.8 cm. I am amazed by Amanda she went the full 20 hours with no painkillers. She is a trooper. We finally got some rest last night. So far this morning we have had some great bonding time with Elaine. We figured out that Elaine was just being considerate to her two Grandparents and split the difference between their birthdays. My mom's on the third and Amanda's dad on the 5th. We will be at the hospital until Saturday.
