Lexie Arrived Today

Amanda's water broke around 3:15 am while she was spending the night with Johnny.  Soon after that she and Johnny headed to the hospital.  She was 4 cm dilated when she arrived.  She received an epidural around 6:15 am and was 10 cm dilated by 6:30.  Lexie Autumn Boyle arrived at 6:52 am weighing 6 lb. 14 oz.  She was 19.5 inches long.  She has fuzzy blonde hair and it looks like blue eyes.  When we arrived at the hospital at 7:00 am she was still being cleaned up.  Then the pictures began.  I captured her first picture.  What a shock that is since her other Grandma is such a picture freak.  We stayed to visit for about an hour before heading off to pick up Summer at my sister's house.  I took a nap from 11 to 1:30 and then got up to cook Clint some lunch before heading off to the hospital so Summer could meet her niece.  I tried to let her hold Lexie, but she said she just wanted to look.  We stayed and visited for a few minutes.  She watched her big sister change Lexie's first diaper.  Then she was ready to leave.  Gotta love the attention span of a two year old!
