Lydia Rose Waite

Our little Lydia was born on January 5, 2011. She was a week overdue so we decided to have her induced. We really wanted to have her born while Rebecca was still home for Christmas break. We went in at 7:00 in the morning. Dr. Spomer broke my water about 8:00. I really thought that would start contractions but it didn't happen that way. We spent the morning walking and waiting, but not having any contractions. Finally, at about 2:30 in the afternoon Dr. Spomer decided to start labor with pitocin. That did the trick and little Lydia was born at 4:09. She is weighed 6 lbs 14 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. She is a beautiful little girl. She is so quiet. I think she is the quietest baby we have ever had. She has a sweet disposition. I joked that we could name her Patience because she is so patient at waiting for what she needs. Patience Waite doesn't really seem to work together so Lydia it is. We are feeling very blessed!! Hope you enjoy the movie of our little Lydia.
