Piggy Paige

Paige Sommerfeldt was born on September 19, 2010. She came on her due date! She was 8 lbs 12 oz and was 22 inches long! I went into labor at about 1 AM and stayed at home and waited to see if it was for real. The two previous nights I started contractions at about the same time but by 8 AM they were gone. So by the time I realized that it was for real I was pretty far along. We got to the hospital at 7:15 and she was born at 7:42 AM. It went really well.

I took hypnobirthing classes and it helped a ton. It was a really good experience. It was a dream delivery. I recovered even faster than I did with Claire. And now after 2 1/2 months I finally feel like we have a schedule and I'm able to manage 2 kids.

I had a lot of help the first month after Paige was born. My mom came right after, then Kevin got a week off, then my sister Elena came for a few days, then Kevin took another week off, then Kevin's mom came for a week. And we've had lots of visitors since. Kevin's brother Bruce came, and then my Dad was able to come, and then Kevin's sister Michelle came for my birthday. And starting January Kevin's borther Bruce and his family are coming to live with us for an internship until March.

Here are a few pictures of the adorable Piggy Paige. We call her Piggy because when she cries she snorts. It's really sweet. She is super adorable and a great baby.
