New addition to the family!

She is finally here! Gil and I went into the hospital Monday morning at 5:30 so I could be induced. I was nervous, but not to worried since I had done this 2 other times. I told my husband I just need to get through the epidural and then everything else would be a breeze. Little did I know it was going to be all but a breeze. I was supposed to get my epidural at 8:00 and they had to keep postponing it. I finally got it at 11:30. I was so relieved because I didn’t know if I could deal with the pain anymore. I got the epidural and all it did was numb a little bit of my upper stomach. About 20 minutes after getting my epidural it was time to push so I just had to do it with an epidural that was not working. I can now say I have had a kid all natural, and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. BUT it was definitely worth it because we now have a beautiful baby girl. Her name is Chelsey Lynn Mills-Bishop. She weighed 6 lbs 15 oz and is 19 ½ inches long. I thought I might get a little red headed girl but instead I was extremely surprised with her dark brown hair. I also was surprised with how much hair she had since both of my other children were practically bald. She has huge dimples on both cheeks. Addy absolutely loves her and would hold her all day if we would let her. She was just a little worried when we brought chelsey home because she said "mom she looks like a boy." We just assured her that her hair would grow and she would look more like a girl. Collin is still trying to get used to the idea. He holds out his hands and says mine. He will then hold her for about 10 seconds before giving her back. Things are going well just trying to get used to 3 kids. Thanks to everyone for all the phone calls and e-mails!
