Jordis Leslie Hagen : Status = Born

Pin It Now!


I'm posting this on Wendy's behalf as she is in the hospital for a few more days without web access. Today we had a new baby daughter come into the world at 7:20pm. Wendy was induced today (Friday) at 11:45am, her water was broke by Dr. Leach at 4pm and she only really had to give one push close to 7:20pm.

Jordis came out at 7lbs 13oz and was 19in long.

Wendy worked really hard to deliver completely natural (no epidural) and even kept up her sense of humor in the most intense times. Of course, none of the rest of us in the room dared try to say anything at all, let alone funny, during these 'transition' times.

Some pics are posted at our gallery --> http://gallery.me.com/shilohhagen/100181

I've also got some other pics on my facebook page under the mobile gallery. I'm known as Shiloh H in those parts.

Thank you for your prayers and donations.

Congrats guys! BEAUTIFUL girl! Wendy, I'm proud of ya... Clancy was natural because he came in 26 minutes. I think I would have caved if I had to do it your way! How nice that she was a bit smaller for you... easier on the pipes :) Looking forward to seeing your family of 5 (wow!) sometime soon!

Yay!! She's here! She's beautiful (just like all the other Hagens!). Gotta say, that first picture of you, Wendy, made me laugh out loud. I really think you should turn this blog into a book....you could make a LOT of money! I know I'd buy it...and buy it for my friends! Thanks so much for sharing your life on this blog. It's a part of my every day reading. Love you all so much. Congratulations!

Congratulations Wendy......you are a star for going natural (this coming from a girl with two kids and never having a contraction). She is beautiful and perfect; and you are the MOST beautiful women in labor ever! I love that picture. Enjoy the next few days with you little Jordis. I can't wait to meet her.

Joris is yummy and her hair even looks a little curly! Wen I'm proud of you, BUT, a little disappointed that you didn't take the laptop and blog yourself, during labor. Seriously.
Love you bunches.

Sooooo happy for you! Welcome to the outside little Jordis! And you were cracking jokes throughout, Wendy? I don't think I said one funny thing...I was probably just mean muggin'. And for sure about the donations...if that's what Shiloh really wants to get Jordis, I have some spare change. Love you guys! ~The VanCleaves

She's a beauty, and she has the Hagen mouth (or is that a Cox trait?) oh and Shiloh, good luck with those donations. Your family is too big for that car!!
