Caroline Jane Lawrence arrived in the wee hours of the morning on October 15th 2011. She was born via c-section at 0001 in the morning. Dr. Dryden decided on Friday afternoon to go ahead with the c-section a week early after a non-stress test showed non-reassuring fetal heart tones. An ultrasound was done which showed that Caroline had her cord in her hand and was occasionally squeezing it (silly girl- that is something I could see Audrey doing). When Caroline got here her daddy was the first to announce to the room that “it’s a girl!! Caroline’s Apagar scores were 9/9 and she weighed 6 pounds 1 ounce and is PERFECT!!
