On August 14, 2011, we welcomed our daughter into this world, Emeline Addie Lobdell. I had gone into my birthing time on Friday, August 12 and after a wonderful but long labor, she was born at 2:17, Sunday afternoon. We had her at the Women's Birth and Wellness Center in Chapel Hill. My husband, my mom, my sister, and the amazing women at the birth center helped me tremendously as I had this baby. Emeline was 8lbs.5oz, 20.5inches, and completely perfect and lovely! Here are a few moments from the first two weeks of her life as her daddy and I got to know her.
