The waiting is over, everyone! Emma Mae Meissner arrived September 20th at 6:09 AM. She was 7 lbs., 11 oz. and 20.5″ long (much bigger than her big brother Brady who was 7 lbs., 0 oz. and 19″ long). She also made a quick delivery as Mommy, Daddy, and Brady didn’t arrive to Triage until 2 AM. She did all the work for Mommy too as the nurses asked Mommy to stop pushing (after only a few pushes) so she could wait for her doctor to arrive. Well… that didn’t stop little miss Emma as she was out past her eyebrows when the doctor walked in!
We want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers as Mommy and Emma are doing great! Emma is a great little sleeper and eater, and already has a closet full of pink (Mommy did some online shopping while they were at the hospital) 🙂 Big Brother Brady is also adjusting well and is sure to tell Mommy and Daddy when “baby crying.”
Check out some of the pictures and videos below:
On the way to Triage at the hospital. Big Brother Brady thought that was an awesome adventure being out while it was dark shortly before 2 AM.

In the delivery and labor room. Brady found some new “toys” (aka a birthing ball) while waiting for Grandpa and Grandma Meissner to come pick him up.
Almost time to start pushing. Mommy is feeling great after getting her epidural.
Emma Mae has arrived after only a few minutes of pushing!
Later that day at the hospital. Mommy and Daddy have been moved into their suite and Brady is coming to meet his new little sister.

Time to take Emma home!
Home at last…
