Due to the fact that Lisa is currently unable to post for herself (and never does when she IS able), I (her beloved sister-in-law) have taken it upon myself to update everyone on the Paynes.
On Sunday, April 5th, Lisa began having regular contractions. By 10pm that evening, Jared and Lisa were on their way to the hospital. After an epidural, several hours of labor, and THREE AND A HALF HOURS of pushing, nothing. Unfortunately, Lisa's OBGYN was on leave due to surgery. The on-call doc came in and assessed the situation. After trying to turn the baby and such, it was decided that Lisa would have to resort to plan B: a c-section.
At 7:32am on Monday, April 6th, Taylor Kelly Payne graced the world with her presence. At 6lbs 8oz and 19 3/4" long, tiny Taylor stole the hearts of her parents immediately, not to mention everyone who has met her since! Both mommy and baby are doing great!

Mommy and baby!

Miss Taylor Kelly Payne

Such a sad face!

Hopefully there will be more to come... eventually

Ok, yes, the post about my cruise is still going to happen...someday. I'm just posting this really quick to let everyone know that Jared and I are canceling our internet (with little Taylor going to be here really soon, we've decided to make cut-backs). Also, if I haven't already contacted you through facebook, please send me an email with your address...I'm collecting addresses for the upcoming baby shower! So...I plan on making good use of different people's computers, so I shouldn't be posting any less than before...

but, seriously, send me an email (lisamariepayne@gmail.com) with your address. Really. Especially people like you, Katy, who I have no other way of contacting :)
