Heaven on Earth


The doctor who delivered our baby also delivered my sister's baby 6 weeks ago!

This is just after her first bath! Do you like the red bow? :-) Go Utes!
Here's the best dad ever with his baby girl.
Here she is today. Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Whoever thought that so much could change over such a short period of time. We went into the hospital on Thursday night at 10. They started the medicine to ripen my cervix and at about 8:30am my water broke. They started the pitocin around 9:30. I progressed rather quickly and around 4pm I was ready to push. At 4:44 our baby girl came. She weighed 9 lbs 6 oz and was 22 inches long. The past four days have been crazy but such a great adventure. I never thought I would love to look at someone so much. She of course is perfect to us and we couldn't be happier. What a spiritual experience it has been to have her come into our lives. Words cannot express my feelings. Anyway, all is going well. Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband yesterday. He's been amazing through this whole thing. I couldn't ask for anything more.
