Getting ready to go home. What an experience!
My heart is so full! My sweet baby girl arrived on Sunday, February 7th, at 11:32 am. The morning was full of nervousness and excitement. I have done this whole "birth" thing twice before so you'd think wouldn't be scared at all. But, I just couldn't believe that it was already time for this! (Not that I wanted to keep her inside any longer!) When we got to the hospital, after I got all hooked up to the monitors, my Dr. came and broke my water to get things started, and off we went. My mom was here from Arizona and my friend Amy were there to share this experience too. So we just hung out and chatted for what I felt like was forever! I was disappointed that it seemed to be taking so long when in actuality, from start to finish, it only took about 3 hours! Dr. Willis had just called to check on me and said he was going to church and to page him when things picked up. Well, about 20 minutes later, I felt things "pick up" FAST! I was at about 6 centimeters and then all the sudden I was almost at a 9 and wanted to push. So, they called my Dr. back and he rushed over in his suit and tie, and said, "Let's have a baby!" So, about 20 minutes later, we did! She is just so beautiful and fun and I can't imagine our lives without her. The boyz absolutely are in love with her and want to hold her all the time. Well, until she cries or smells stinky, which is a lot! I am having so much fun putting bows on her sweet little head and putting pretty pink socks on her. I wish I could put all the pictures up here but I will just put some of my favorites. (I put more up on my facebook page if you are interested though.) I can hardly believe we now have a 3rd child and its our little baby girl! Our family feels complete and THAT feels amazing!
