Taydom Elizabeth Finlayson was born on February 24, 2009 at 1:27 a.m. She was two weeks early, but still a very good size baby. She was 8 lbs. 8 oz. and 22 inches long. She has red hair just like her big sister, KaileeJo. She is very healthy and strong so far.
Stephanie started to have contractions yesterday at about 9 a.m. and by about 3 p.m. she had called Adam at work to come and get her. Unlike the pregnancy with KaileeJo, Taydom was giving her poor mother a lot strong contractions for about a week and a half or so. Needless to say, Stephanie was very ready to get her out. We went to the hospital at about 6 p.m. and Stephanie was dialated to 6 cm and efaced at 90%. They admitted us into the hospital, but for several hours nothing was really happening, until the doctor came and broke her water at about 10:30 or so. From there everything progressed well, and before we knew it, Taydom was here. Stephanie only pushed for about 10-15 minutes. All of the nurses were amazed with how easy she made it look. Thankfully both Taydom and Stephanie are healthy and doing well. We will keep everyone updated on the upcoming events. KaileeJo still has not met her baby sister, so we will post a video of that soon.
