Mckinley Elizabeth is here!

Mckinley Elizabeth (Kinley for short) came this morning at 9:31 am. She's 7 lbs 0 oz. and 20 inches long. So tiny! She is perfect and so cute! I started having contractions yesterday afternoon around 3:00, but they were all over the place--between 4 and 10 mins apart. Finally, at 2:00 am they started coming every 2-3 mins and I could go to the hospital. Once we got there, I got all hooked up and got my epidural and it was smooth sailing. She basically slid out of me when the time came. I think I gave 2 tiny little pushes. No tearing! It was an awesome birth. So far, I have felt great (besides being sleepy--I got NO sleep during the labor). I'm hoping I can even go home tomorrow night.
The name--we actually changed it at the last minute. Yesterday morning we decided on Mckinley because we just thought Maebel wasn't cheery enough. We wanted something a little more spunky. We just kind of came up with it and went with it! I like it because it sounds kind of geographical and adventurous! Kinley must like it too, because as soon as we changed it, she decided to come!
