She weighed in at 7 lbs 12 oz! She is a very strong little girl. From day 1 she was lifting her head off our shoulders. Just now, at six days old, she was cuddled up to me and I was talking to her and she lifted her head and looked at me! She sleeps all day and stays up all night. she likes to suck on her hands, her arm, anything! she is just adorable.... We went to the pediatician on Friday, and she weighed 8 lb 2 ounces.
She is named after my third great grandmother- Emma California Ferris. My mother has her china and silver so I grew up hearing about her. My sister and I each have one of her chairs that traveled with her from illinois to California in the 1850's. She is a great part of our family history. Her brother George Washington Gale Ferris Jr invented the Ferris Wheel for the 1893 world's fair. Her grandfather, Goerge Washington Gale, was a presbyterian minister who created the city of Galesberg, Illinois solely to be used as a stop on the underground railroad. Galesberg still exists to this day. It was also the sight of one of the Lincoln- Douglass debates.
Her middle name, LeAnne, combines my sisters middle name, Leigh, and mine, Anne. And lets just face, all of that family history aside- the name Emma LeAnne Cameron just flows.
She was born a year from the date that my Nana, Gertrude, died January 7, 2006. I find this very beautiful!

She Looks like she has my nose from my baby pictures. But the lips do not look like my family.... They look like Ryan's!
Her hand is next to her mouth and she is sucking on her finger .....
She loves to rest her head on hand when she is sleeping... Something I always do when I rest. We had a hard time gettting her to move her hand from her face for the photos....

It is 2 days before the due date and we are anxiously awaiting our little Emma LeAnne. Although not quite so anxious for the experience that will bring her into this world. I have been dialated to a 1 and 50% effaced for the last 2 1/2 weeks with no change!
So far I have only felt two contractions, but I do have them daily - all day long. It seems I am a little different from most woman ( besides my mom) in that I don't feel contractions, but My Belly tightens and the only way I even know that it is a contraction is to touch my belly and feel how tight it is. I do feel a lot of lower pressure. I had suspected these were contractions but was not sure. We were at the hospital a couple weeks ago for some monitoring and they confirmed that I had a five minute contraction that I never even felt. Most people tell me how lucky I am.... But being the worrier that I am, I just hope I feel enough pain early enough to get me to the hospital. My doctor has told me to forego the usual waiting at home for 3-4 hours, she said as soon as I feel anything to go to the hospital.
I have tried a few different times to get our ultrasound pictures up but to no avail... The website keeps erroring on me! They are now up!
